Frightening, of course... I would feel the same way at some point, but don't let that keep you from enjoy that great experience! As you say, nobody will push you to be the winner (even riding a KTM Rallye ).
Being an amateur rider, Rallyies are an inner challenge don't you think?

Keep pushing your project!

For a second I thought you were actually coming down the Baja California, and I was gonna offer my garage for help prepping and recommend some places for tires. Then I realized this is taking place in Europe, so i'll retract my offer.

Definitely take it easy, you're on a very capable bike but it's no fun if you hurt yourself before the finish. Good luck!

Hi there, Im back But I have no good news
It was raining and raining and raining and we hat lots of mud und deep water up till the seat
Due to the heavy bike and the bad conditons I had an accident after just like 26 km in stage 1.
The rear wheel just completely went sideways while doing about 60-70 km/h on forest track and it ended up in kind of highsider.
Luckily I didn´t hit any tree or something, but anyway my shoulder was dislocated and the medical team got me out and to the hospital, which was the end of my rally
There were a lot more technical passages before, but this really easy and straight track was super slippery, there were 2 more (a 660 and a 690 Rally) crashing at almost the same place
Guess what - I´m really disappointed now, after doing so much preparation of everything and so on
Maybe I also need a shoulder operation now...
Anyway here are some photos I took, watch out for the Speedbrain and De Rooy Team

Hey... I think you missunderstood my "destroy them"...
Anyhow, once you was decided to do it, you should have hit somebody in your crash course...

Ok, seriously, most important -> you are not bad injured, there will be other rallyes.
Think now about your shoulder and a good rehab (SpeedBrain will be waiting for your return ). Hope a surgery will not be necessary.

I know, you prepared a lot and you were very excited about finishing the race... it's understandable, but you do know since day one a crash is an omni present possibility. Please don't let it take you down... you are walking
More races to come!

Keep us posted about your shoulder's days to come.

Wow. Good luck on healing and hopefully no surgery.

As always when I get a new toy, I could not resist to try if the Keihin FCR 41 fits to my bike
And it doesn´t The carb is much too big and doesn´t clear the battery by ... far more than an inch
So I turned my pockets inside out and just ordered a very small but powerfull lifepo battery
http://shop.strato.de/epages/6133307...123_Block_V3-1

It is stronger and even has a bigger capacity than the old ones, which even didn´t really manage to start the bike with just 4 Ah ...

Furthermore I´m going to replace the Rally ICO (somebody wants it?) with my Desert Zone Rally Team IMO 100R, which also shows the revs

I´ve got a doctors appointment tomorrow to make a ct and see if surgery is needed, we will see
It´s actually a bit better than last week but of course I can´t (and shouldn´t) stress the shoulder at the moment.

Yeah... these issues take time, but most important thing is that you should pay attention to a good rehab -> boring!!!! .... I know, but it will pay off, that's for sure.
Thanks for your feedback.

Hiho, I just installed the small lifepo battery and now the setup fits fine.
At the weekend I will do a test ride with a lambda sensor to find out the best carburetor setup

Afterwarts I´m going to mount a Garmin GPSmap 278 and my IMO on the handlebar

Hi!
Did you sold your ICO? If no, how much you want for it? Can you ship it to Russia?
