Oh, no.

I'm so sorry.





Perhaps it's just an extra 52 weeks to train?

That's a bummer! I'd have a 15 year old Corolla estate to spare -- never let me down so far --and, when I squint really hard and turn my head just so, it looks a tad bit like a rallye car [not] ... although the Atacama might be a bit much for it.
Sorry, not helping here, I guess...

How about the 2013 campaign then?

In. and if you have and 2011 leftovers in 2xl, tell me how to get one.

Ahhhh Jen, I'm so sorry.....

Better to have been and done it, than to have never done it at all. More than 99.9% of inmates on here will ever get to do.

2013 then..... Don't give up on it yet.

Anyone got a rally car I can borrow?

Really sorry to hear that

But look on the positive side - it gives you an extra 12 months to work hard on your recovery, make sure your injusries are 100% sorted, get more time back on the bike and be at the front of the queue for entries for 2013

... that SUX! But on the other hand, four fingers and a thumb, as my English Comp teacher was wont to say, 43-odd yrs ago. In a way, isn't it nice when others remove the decision-making burden? No need now for lying awake nights, playing this scenario against that, agonizing.

Let's take it as "a sign from above."

Go JMo, # ???, Dakar 2013 !!!!!
Go Piglet!!!



Now to important concerns:
How 'bout that Roadbook page from the endo into the rocks, day before "the big 'un?"
Bank/PayPal accounts won't be reloaded 'til after payday, middle of next month; I did it again, bought a '92 R100RT last month then sold the '74 XLCH1000 immediately but that didn't quite ( !) cover the Beemer's cost.
(Yes, the owner (2nd, as I understand it) has the original windshield (to replace that barn-door monstrosity his apparently very tall brother, the Original Owner, I think, installed) and Touring Cases. New tires, new battery, tank & Bings drained before layup 3-4 years ago, way below "Blue Book," etc.; how could I not? Keeping the undeserving and unappreciative from getting their grubby little dick-skinners on great bikes seems to have become my mission in life!)
