Why do I have the feeling this was not such a big moment as in Lima 2012, I see no crowd.

It is weird how bereft I feel when this is over each year. Last year I was driving solo through Namibia - in those rare occasions when I could get to the internets I came here first.
Well it's not Mexico and it's not Namibia and there may not be much F5 hammering, but I'll see you in Odessa if you're there. Maybe we should have a F5 Rally Tragic's Anonymous meeting one night... hopefully not a 35 degree mud bath this year.

Cool!

I had to honor the Dakar yesterday as well, hooked up with two ADVers I hadn't met (well, turns out I'd met one and just didn't know it) and we headed east hoping to stay out of the snow.

So far so good...


And then this . Lots of it.


One guy rode this on a DR with stock Trailwings!

Ended up a little more 'epic' than planned but we had a ball anyway.

The brown stuff underneath it most certainly is . Central Oregon is one of the few places I've ridden where you'll come out of the snow and immediately be making dust...

Well kids and junkies I think it is time to review the key lessons that were learned from this year's Dakar.

* Those that are headbandophobic are latent headbandual.

* When Luis B. walks it sounds like someone is clacking two billiard balls in a Crown Royal bag.

* The US still has the great missing the frontal lobe function hope in Casselli.

* If Despres is there, Coma needs to be there so the alien battle can be appreciated.

* The French are your natural superiors for another year for winning and creating this race. If you don't have french heritage sale your bike cheap to someone who can really do something with it.

Anyway, all of you need to find your way to the Dakardone clinic to help alleviate your event addiction.

Great job again f5ers and all of the other cliff notes threads.

PM great job again on the interviews and I'll be happy to see you all next year.

Hi Tomas - I think you misread my original post - that was my point - BMW realised that the G450X was perhaps not the 'golden ticket' they had hoped for, so dropped the competition line to concentrate on their large capacity Adventure range... letting Husqvarna take over any subsequent development of the 450X engine/platform for the 449.

As I'm sure you are aware, the Speedbrain kit was originally developed for the G450X, and modified/developed over the past couple of years to work with the modified chassis that Husqvarna employed for the 449.

My point is simply that by separating the racing programme/s (Mini & Husqvarna) from the parent company (BMW) the risk now is minimal for BMW - if it works, then it's great for the sub-brands; and it if doesn't, BMW don't suffer from adverse publicity/criticism, and their core business and brand image remains unaffected...
