Mega cool, and thanks for the pics of the bike, such a treat.
Good luck in the race, and be sure we will be cheering the whole Canadian effort from the couch.
Good luck! Sweet looking bike.
In 98, after only 10 hours total of motorcycle experience, I sent my KLR650 (which was totally not adapted for rallying) in Granada in order to participate in the Atlas Rallye in Morroco. I had several crashes a day, loosing half the bike in the desert, getting towed by a camel to start the kickless bike and winning the trophy for perseverance and I also became the first Canadian ever to participate in an African Rally Race.
How interested was George off set? I understand he is a fellow rider, a GS me tinks.
Thanks for sharing the pics of the scoot
Best of luck in '10, we'll be cheering you on.
You can catch episode #48 online...
All I can say is "wow"! I saw The Hour interview and was impressed. Nice job. I will certainly be typing in your number when I am looking through the race stats.
If you don't mind me asking, how much money and time goes into that level of modification (excluding the price of the bike)?
Wow, no sponsor and you have got this far. I'll be cheering you on. Best of luck.
All the best for 2010 in South America at the Dakar Rally.
Thanks a lot guys!! It is very nice to read all this support. I will feel that there is people behind me!
thanks again guys!!!
Nice! Where did you get my quote like that? I am curious?
Well it is not exactly right. I do have big sponsor. Because I am a professional motorcycle guide. So I work 4 months in Morroco. Plus I do event for Honda (Junior Red Rider, ect) so I am not exactly rich, the opposite actually.
I am missing 10k now!! I am working full time to get as much money as possible.
The POWERHOUSE HONDA dealer will help me a lot and this summer that rally bike will be in the showroom of those powerhouse.
in the mean time you can meet me at the next TORONTO SHOW, where I am still looking into a sponsor or 2...
So yes without sponsor it is impossible, for me anyway.
Hopefully we'll see you at the Calgary MC Show too.
Just picked up this thread, great to see you all set to go, good luck and we'll be cheering you on over here too!
Just watched the interview too, excellent work!
