Everyone in the bivouac was so friendly that we felt privileged to be there with them. One competitor specifically was bigger than life and made you feel like you had know him for years even though we just met him at the beginning of the week. My condolences to family and freinds of Ivan Erceg, he will be missed. Congratulations to the finishers, they earned it! Cheers
Very proud of your effort buddy!! I hope to read a blow by blow account of what went down...

Another awesome Safari. Great to see Yamaha do well at last and well done to all competitors and teams. They have all demonstrated outstanding efforts in preparation, courage and perseverance especially in light of the sobering loss of Ivan.

Good luck to Shane Deiner for Dakar. If he wants to look for fund-raising inspiration then Neduro, Pyndon and others here have shown that the ADV community is pretty supportive of such endeavours.

Thanks again to Troy and Sylvia for providing such colourful insights into the rallye world we all aspire to.
