My girlfriend told me the shirt and graphics for my bike are cooler than I am. I'm pretty sure she's right. Graphics will be revealed soon...

In like Flynn for a T shirt.

Been using your Double Take mirror mounts with a GoPro RAM mount once on the trails lately: works good.

Good luck in Tunisia!

Ned,

Great to see another XCF out there. We can be "spares buddies" as I have a few in a box heading out to Tunisia.

I have a 2009, 450 that has pretty much all of the same modifications as yours ..... except I have no fairing. My service support team will be Desert Rose Racing.

I bought the bike for the Tuareg last year as I had an entry but still no bike by the beginning of January. For some reason a dealer close to me (in Scotland) had a new one in a packing crate. (I believe they were put together mostly for South Africa and the USA). Money changed hands before a quick build ensued, then off it went to the 2012 Tuareg. It ran pretty faultless even with the cack handed abuse that I dished out to it.

It also did the Serres Rally in greece last year and the thing ran faultlessly all week. It just needs a better/fitter/younger pilot who knows which direction to head in and then it could be a match for anything.

Interested to have a look at your rally moto kit as it seems like a good fit for the bike.

See you there.

I know, I agree! Sorry!

That's our actual cost (or sometimes less, we pay up to $28) for a flat rate priority envelope. They just did a rate increase of up to 50%.

We want to put together a first class option, working on it, but getting ready for the race is taking priority.

A box just showed up from Sidi with the new Crossfire 2's... Thank you brown santa!

Hey what is your take on the 2's fit, is it the same as the first model? I'm beating myself up trying to find someone that has the old ones in stock to let me try them on (size 13 is the problem). My Tech 8's are 13's and they barely fit.

Not your fault, shipping costs have gone through the roof in general. How about throwing a bunch of tees in the parts box for the Tuareg? A couple of my pals are racing there, you could do an impromptu sale in the Bivvy?

Enjoy the Sidis and don't forget to break them in a bit....

Everyone who orders a shirt will also get a few of each of 3 sticker designs...
