    Thanks for that, I had no idea it was that easy to save old stuff in digital form.
    Which software?

    the software comes supplied on CD, with the product i mentioned from amazon (or you can download it if you don't have a CD drive)

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008F0SARC?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

    yes, i though it was going to be complicated, but it's very easy. you just need time to devote to it. i discovered that uploading to youtube takes a while for files over 700mb (although it works in the end), which is about 20 mins of footage

    if you just have one or two tapes to convert i am happy to do them for you, i'll only charge postage/CDs etc

    Thanks for the work on this, i LOVE the old Dakar footage. Dakar has definitely changed over the years, over doubled in size & multi-million dollar operations these days, there is no doubt its the ultimate race of attrition & hopefully a little bit of lady luck involved!

    RIDE ON!

    IIRC 2002 - 2004 were the years of the LC8 Big Twins at the Dakar. Won it (Dakar) in its first attempt too !!

    some reading for you - http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/history-of-950a-in-the-dakar.736422/

    http://www.motorcycletrader.co.nz/reviews/0603/ktm-950-rally-nz-2002/



    So, if you want videos of the Big 950 in action, you can look at those years. You will also find some vids of these dikes at Dakar which I linked to, over on the 950 Rallye thread.

    From 2001-2005 you see the factory KTM LC4 660 bikes are common (they have the two headlights side by side). From 2002-2004 KTM factory ran LC8 950's (2 headlights vertical) for the fast guys and 660's for the water carriers.
    In 05 twins were outlawed and Meoni was killed.

    there are many ways of saving youtube videos in case Eurosport does get mad and has them taken down for whatever reason (is Eurosport even still a thing?)- the easiest method for me to remember is to type "ss" in front of youtube in the url - so if you have for instance:

    www . youtube . com/watch?v=PYE5qRK5VLs

    you would change it to:

    www . ssyoutube . com/watch?v=PYE5qRK5VLs

    (I added spaces in both of these examples so advrider wouldn't turn these example URLs into previews automagically.)

    and a 3rd party save page comes up. It might ask you to install a plugin, but you don't need to unless you want a different resolution than the ones they offer on the page. VLC player will easily play the resulting saved videos too.
