Tires

I will take the tires. Are you good with keeping them until we run into each other?

For those following Dakar race 2013:
Sad news for both KTM and Dakar fans: Spaniard Marc Coma will not be riding in the South American Dakar 2013 rally . The official announcement has been made hours ago by KTM Team Managers Alex Doringer and Coma.

A 3-times Dakar winner, Marc Coma suffered a shoulder injury in the Morocco Rally earlier this year and his recovery is not yet complete. Shoulder muscles are still causing problems and insufficient movement, making riding such a tough off-road race both very hard and dangerous.

KTM has been forced to replace Coma with the American rider Kurt Caselli , but Coma's team mate Cyril Despres (4 Dakar wins) is now the only favorite for the win . Caselli will be riding Coma's KTM 450 Rally but it's very unlikely that he will be able to put up a fight in the same terms the Spaniol rider could.

However, this also leaves room for other Dakar 2013 riders to shine, and hopefully we're going to see a fierce race this year, too.
Good luck Kurt C.

Maybe just maybe

I don't know for sure but there just may be a dark horse this year---privateer--Lyndon Poskitt, "Pyndon" on the adv web is giving it a shot & he's just "nuts" enough to make a good show of it.

That would be something to have a first timer showed up in top ten---Desert Rose is his support team & you know they have the know how to get their racers to the front.

Yes I am thrilled for you that your Frenchman will win, but its kinda of a shueinn for KTM anyway, right?

Also keep a eye on Gary Sparks from Flagstaff Az I think he's going to do the " Neudro thing " and just ride his ride, after all it's a pretty good moniker to say--" I FINISHED THE DAKAR "

Goin to be a fun year for team F5

Was hoping you would pick Wednesday. I will be in Yuma Thursday/Friday so can't make that day.

I will be looking forward to seeing a ride report though!

I'll have the family still here on Wednesday. Too much chaos with them around.

BTW, try out Burgers And Beer while in Yuma. They have good food.

Understood. And thanks for the pointer. Not a lot of good places to eat in Yuma so I appreciate the tip.

Well, if nobody responds for the ride on Thursday, maybe I'll meet you at B&B for lunch on Thursday.

Was on the first few miles (from hwy 93) of Alamo Road Sunday... Lot's of big-juicy mud-holes and wash-outs... May not be the highspeed run you are thinking...
Just my 2cents.
