    Along with Michael Boge on the KTM, Mike Brooke is representing the non-Barcolaungers on his tricked out Hayabusa. The work he's put into this machine is something else. And he's a hell of a rider too.

    Serious question: might the Busa and the KTM be the only non-vintage chaindrive bikes in the rally?

    Kurt Worden is crazier than most of these people...
