My tire changes generally involves a lot more sweating and swearing.
I picked up some tricks; that stand he has is cool a third hand to push the opposite bead down and that third curved tire iron. I'll have to give that a try next time I change tires on my 1150.

I run a rim lock to stop the tyre moving on the rim. Not ripping a valve stem is just a bonus.

Main advantage is there is no spinning of the mousse in the tyre when rim lok used so much less heat generated.

If your plan to reuse your mousses then great way to get the most life out of it. If your using a new mousse everyday with a new tyre then maybe not as important, but I think of it as extra insurance.

I've seen guys melting Michelin M02 desert mousses in desert tyres without a rim lok at the Aus Safari.

I never thought I’d say it……

……but the bike is finally finished!

Here I am, 1:00 in the morning on the day that I head to Le Havre for strutineering. The last four weeks have truly been the busiest weeks of my life. Long drive tomorrow so I must get some sleep but I know you’ve all been waiting for this so here it is, my Dakar 2013 450RR and while the florescent lights and crappy camera don’t do it justice, you get the idea.

Thanks to everybody that’s made this possible, especially my Dad for all his help and everyone that’s contributed to the last minute rush, it seemed like we had plenty of time three weeks ago

A full and detailed build report will follow when time permits.

I wondered the same thing. Maybe the British version of Sanuks?

Well if you take a look on the internet you'll find out http://www.vegetarian-shoes.co.uk/ and Robin Webb, the director of the company was the first person to put his hand in his pocket and support my Dakar campaign. In fact, he made his offering even before I had decided to do the Dakar.

Robin is a great guy, a true adventure motorcyclist and as a result I will proudly wear vegetarian shoes in the bivouac I cannot thank Robin enough for his help. Top guy.
