Probable best dakar start in Southamerica, no problem with dust and overtaking!!


Ah, my first post here after two dakars of following you with the "hot F5 button".

Wear It and Share It!

In order to document all of Bill's supporters around the world, we are holding a little competition (for pride) to see who can best use their imagination and take a picture of themselves/pet/child/bike wearing a shirt/decal/patch that you purchased from the BC2Dakar schwag store on his website: www.bc2dakar.com

Of course you won't be nearly as cute as my niece and nephews, but please feel free to try. You can post to this thread here or email me your photo to jmc505@me.com!

I will post all of them to his website as they come in!

The only reason they're cuter is 'cause you got three of them, Julie....

Realized I didn't have any BC stickers or a T-shirt because I just gave cash earlier. So, I ordered up a T-shirt and some stickers!

Go Bill !!!

Ok, finally a little time to update the bike build. Since spy shots of the skid plate surfaced may as well go public. The details are at www.bc2dakar.com with plenty of pictures.

Here is a picture of the skid plate attached to the bike

The bike has an appealing "Mad Max" look to it!

The welds are sublime!

Very cool! You'll ride the wheels off that machine .. to the finish!

SMIB's going to Dakar! Thanks to everyone who contributed to my Dakar effort. I have been working hard putting together a good rally bike and training. I'll post some pictures of the bike and the SMIB sticker once it is done.

Thanks again!
Bill

The bike's coming along great Bill! I enjoyed visiting, messing with the beast, and generally getting in the way at the fab. shop yesterday.

The HP2 is proud to be sporting the BC2DAKAR sticker!
