She's a beauty...

Any info on the tanks? front/ rear distribution? A friend was running a 2010 RR in a race last November,
crashed lightly and cracked the front tank (it was aluminum).

Hope they're now plastic

edit: I take it back, looks like they are still aluminum after closer inspection of the pics on your blog...

Yeah, you can see the welds. I'll try to see if I can set up an interview to get some more details. It does look like a tidy package though.

Don't get me wrong, it looks really compact and well thought, I just have a soft spot for plastic
especially the translucent kind which allows checking the fuel level!

Will be test riding their 450 & 498 models next sunday, Beta might be turning into a serious option
for me!

Coming back where? Africa? Not with the current state of Senegal, Mali, and Western Sahara it ain't. I would imagine a South Africa, Namibia, and possibly even Angola route could be made though, but I expect finances will dictate a South American rally for years to come. The finances versus adventure ratio is tipping more and more away from the adventure side of the scale.

There was a Patagonia - Atacama rally before Dakar moved to South America, ran in early-mid 2000's

Once Dakar arrived in 2009 both it and the Por Los Pampas rallys disappeared.
