Probably just saving the battery. I do it all the time.

So far Yamahas were Kickstarted. Is there a reason that the HRC bikes do not have a kickstarter present? Or is it folded somewhere, waiting to get out when the time comes ?

The KTM's have 2 batteries but no kick start, perhaps they're the same.

I found that portion of the course in Google Earth. Here's how those points look:

All points in view:


KM 138,93:


KM 139,74:


KM 139,91:


KM 140,19:


About 50% of this stage is identical to Dakar 2011 Stage 1, in the opposite direction. Portions were also part of a WRC type rally later in 2011.

Yikes!!! After wrestling that thing through the dunes in the heat, dumping it, flooding it, picking it up, and then having to kickstart the beast? Ugh!!!! It's hard to believe that wouldn't be a huge disadvantage. On the other hand, i guess that's incentive to keep it running.

I hear some nice V8 music in the background
