Can't let you forget us Duke
Ah yes, the "Command'R" shirt.
yup, for all of mac maniacs out there
Ooooh ! Look what DHL just delivered.
What is the current requirements for fuel capacity?
Found this picture from the LA Dakar Page:
Whilst IMO is an extremly simple/clean solution for a Dakar bike, I was not sure that the Safari Tanks solution, had quite enough capacity?
It states on the safari website that the tanks are 21L at the front and 8.5L at the rear.
I thought that around 35L was a reasonable minimum.
For the current Dakar (since 2006), you gotta be able to go 250km between fuel stops. Most people add a 10% margin of error to that. Before 2006, you had to be able to go 350km between fuel stops.
For the average 450cc enduro bike, 28L should just about do it, but there are too many variables to call this a rule. Anyone headed to the Dakar better have tested their fuel consumption in the correct conditions several times.
They are pretty friendly with how they place fuel stops, as well. I had been concerned it would be 250k of soft stuff (which could be a lot of gas!) but they only stretched the intervals where it was more firm and possible to get reasonable mileage. I had 28L and was never cutting it close.
The fast guys need much more fuel, something about time on the main jet.
I used that kit from HM Jolly Racing/Boano in Egypt...I liked it.
And vessel is through Panama Canal.
Team F5 has reached a new level when we can track the ship that carries the bikes that are headed for Dakar. Crazy.
Should we cheer for the boat in a similar fashion as we do the competitors?
That is one ugly-ass ship!
But it's whats inside that really counts...
