I watched '85, the truck group start and the sandstorm were my highlights...

By the way 85 was 28 years ago, what kind of copyright protection has the ASO on 28 year old footage? These guys are worst than Disney...

75 years is PD. Unless renewed.

Lads and Ladies, I would suggest using (downloading if you don't have) the firefox browser and installing the add-on 'flashgot.' I've been using it for several years now and it works great. My connections can be so crappy that I probably wouldn't watch much of anyting if I coldn't download it.

I'm almost done downloading all these classics. Might have to marathon over new years...

Not sure how 'newsworthy' this is or if it has been covered before ......

Back in 2003 'Dakar - The Challenge of the Desert' was published - I had never come across it until it came up in discussion on anther thread on here. It sounded interesting so I quickly got a copy on order from Amazon

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1...?ie=UTF8&psc=1




It arrived today and is well worth a read - think of it as an early edition of 'Tales from the Bivouac' and you won't be too far off. An interesting insight into the background of the event, what it takes to compete, and plenty of images telling the story of the 2003 rally.

If you are a Rally fan this is a good, and interesting, addition to your bookcase.

Seeing over the instruments....no problem



Photos with him next to Dakar bikes are always an interesting contrast:





Love the BIG Suzukis.
So Suzuki started the whole faux beak thing?

Always thought it was BMW ?

Exactly....allow me to show off my 89. (yes....the rear tire has been replaced and the disc is ordered)

It's a 750 single and my most "fun" bike to ride

Dakar books

I found this one (from 1984) in a second-hand book shop here in Australia. It's in French, so I can't read much of it, but there's around 20-30 black and white photos. It even has a budget section (suggesting a minimum budget of around 63,000FRF)!
