    RIDER/DRIVER FEEDBACK HIGHLIGHTS FROM 2015 BAJA RALLY
    26 OUT OF 32 FINISHERS COMPLETED A POST RALLY SURVEY.
    25 FELT THEIR SAFETY WAS A TOP CONCERN AND THAT THE ORGANIZER WAS PREPARED FOR AN EMERGENCY
    25 INTEND TO RECOMMEND THE EVENT TO FRIENDS
    25 THOUGHT THE OFFICIALS STAFF TOOK A GENUINE INTEREST IN THEM.
    [​IMG]

    20 OF THEM THOUGHT THE ROUTES EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS
    NONE OF THEM THOUGHT THE ROADBOOKS SUCKED

    This guy seemed to enjoy himself

    We, here at Rally Raid Products in the UK, built it for Carl Hagenblad, our Swedish Dakar rider for Baja 2015, but as we did'nt make it over, I thought I better give it a run.
    The only thing left to do is run it up on the dyno to dial in the EFI for the high-comp piston & Twin Air filter kit.
