Feeling very happy back on the bike again after not riding since October.

Bring on Touareg!!

Hey biggles, what gearing do you run on the KTM 450 for the toureg?

It's getting closer to start.

Rally Raid Sweden will load all the bikes to the service truck Sunday 11th and right now all riders are in the final stage of preparing the bikes.

My bike almost ready.

Seriously? 3 sets and 2 for spare? What tires do you run? Soft mx ones? I hope to do the week on a set of deserts and have some thread left for next year! i guess im just 2 slow to even hurt the tyres or you could call me 'captain slow'

A soare engine always comes in handy! If you have the room ofcourse!

Mind bringing mine too? :) Just got one from Alice Racing and should be done some day next week :)

Unless you're in the sands, the Deserts will be punished severely in Morocco (MoreROCKo)!

I'm running on following set-up
1 desert rear day 1-2 a new desert rear for day 3 + 6&7
1 MX tire for day 4&5
1 desert in front for all the days

For sure you can do it with a set of desert but you will struggle a little in the sand but if you are a god rider no problem

tyres

Last year I used 1 x desert front, I had a second hand desert rear for the first 2 days then changed it for a new desert for the remainder of the rally, I had no problems in the dunes with the desert tyres, I still have the tyres and i reckon they will do another outing

If it is good enough for Cyril, its good enough for me ;)

I tend to do a weeks riding in spain on a set of michelin enduros , rear will be shot at the end of the week ofcourse but the front survives okay.

Kinda think of it as the turtle and the hare, guess who i will be ;) Im bringing a spare set of wheels, might just put a mx tyre on the rear of that, then again, i dont want to be digging through the dunes but surfing

Anyways, lets make sure i finish building my bike so i can even make the start

Ow yeah, my Aprilia does more then 25km's per liter of fuel!


LOL Anders , you're slagging me off already

I'm not that slow, just slow...

I tend to spend to much time at the bar and not enough in my bed, so the next morning I get up okay but really need to lay down after lunch and get some rest to make the finish

This year however I have been to the gym and Ill try to spend less time at the bar (keeping your place at the bar warm ) and have some energy after lunch!
