You mean the neck braces? http://www.leatt-brace.com/

It's a bit-off topic for this thread, so PM me if you want to know more, or ask on one of the general racing threads.

No Love

Where is the Love? lol. There hasn't been much available since the negative commentary. Are we all being punished for the views of one? I hope not.

I have already expressed my appreciation for Go Now's efforts. What else can be done to heal old wounds????

I suspect GoNow has a real life that is getting in the way.

Be patient. We have workarounds in case he is MIA much longer.

I am here. Just had to put in a very late night at work then got home and crashed into bed.

Everything is up.

GoNow, where do you live and what do you do, there is bound to be someone here with similar skills that can do your real job while you take care of this.

Seriously mate, no worries, all is well.

In this situation the file is already an mp4 so it's easy to drag and drop into iTunes and then I have the option to watch it on my 42" tv via ATV2 or I can watch it on my iPad2 through Home Sharing. I agree that VLC is a good companion when the file isn't an mp4. Helps to avoid lengthy media file conversions.

Google Maps of Dakar route....

Can someone point me in the right direction of the Dakar routes in Google Maps? I can't find anything. Maybe it doesn't exist.

Or just watch it together and watch her face when she sees you get all excited about something she can't understand.

It's all about motivation, ya know.
It's amazing how different the coverage is. The French network coverage shows a lot of better action than the Eurosport stuff. Just watching day 6 coverage and it's awesome.

Well, it's all infinitely better than the USA coverage

As far as Eurosport, I can't decide if I like Carlton Kirby or if he drives me nuts. For sure I could watch hours of just the wide-angle dune footage, the vistas are incredible.

The French program is 1 hour long with tons of coverage of riders stuck out in the dunes, and footage of the world's largest copper mine.

I am French so I understand everything but Stephanie does not speak French, but she's not complaining!

She wants me to go and get all the other French episodes.
