    While we wait for the Dakar (Can you believe that in 4 days it will be less than 5 months away? Not much time at all!) I have been scratching around and am putting on a series of best of bikes.

    Hope you enjoy. Ned, you're in there somewhere too, hope it brings back good memories. More coming soon.

    Well I had part 2 up last night but now I have been crapped out for copywrite on the soundtrack and warned. :(:

    Smugmug bugs out when I try and upload it there, files are too big I think. So its going to be back the drawing board for a little while me thinks.

    I think it's not a Yamaha YZ, it's a WR ! take a look to the link from the pictures, something like WR-F is written on the tank. Also the exhaust is not a YZ piece on the base bike. But anyway, this kit is awesome !!!

    The guy himself told me is YZ but he could easily do it on a WR, here another photo if the link works

    Looks like a YZ to me. The WR would have the exhaust pipe out the front.

    The picture link in the first post is to a WR 450.

    Frans just asked me to remove the above from my FB page... Reason being he is about to sign with a team for 2 Dakars...

    Thats was Frans V earlier this year on the bike he was supposed to ride in the Albania Rallye.

    Most are indeed speculating on him joining up with Vectra again and perhaps a few more Vectra sponsored guys around him.

    Part 2 is now up. Carnage on Stae 2 & 3, with some nice amatuer footage too.
