While the XR 650R might be the king of Baja, the HP2 is the big daddy of the old school Dakar.

There can only be two explanations for someone who shows up on this to ride "single track" either they don't know anything about off-roading or...they are a damn good rider...it was the later.

I may have to get one, unless the air goes bad! Will it still work with bad air?

I like the picture for the ride. Cathy sure has style when she rides.

I was fooling around with a logo for this...what do you think? Very Nice Allyn, Sorry I had to bail on the ride,the single track used up all of my "my time". Ride On! Phil

OK,

After consulting YZFCathy, she thinks we need to go with this logo.

Endurance Rally

I want to get serious about the plan for this in the next two weeks and see how many folks are "IN".

Sounds like a lot of on the ground WORK needs to be done before a poster child is picked

I am quite fond of that selection. But I am confused on the date.

I know you are the man that knows that route, but if I remember correctly there is a gate with a special code only you know.

Orginally I was thinking April 7th but was reminded that is Easter weekend...thus April 14th makes sense.
