Well, hopefully he will take "lessons learn't" and put them to best use, but at least now he is surrounded by people who have already learn't them !

See image below.. No manny to be found there according to Hans Vogels, he went down the canyon too and had a horrible time climbing back out...

The first bit is confirmed, but Speedy, Grabbo (I believe) and Sam made it through (there may have been more) but it was very very hairy for Speedy in particular not being able to stand whilst astride the bike - well you can laugh now

Actually that picture (which I made) is a little wrong. The official route off the end was actually down to the other side of the mountain, not to the side you can see in the pic. I also think Sam's escape route was also to to that side of the mountain (the western side).

The interesting part is Jan Vesely's description which refers to the Spot and only 8km to the finish. Hmm.

I'm not sure we will ever get to the bottom of this. That's why I am interested to hear what the female quad rider who was rescued to continue had to say about the whole thing.

This was South of Pahrump, Nevada area. The sand was BigDune North of Pahrump, generally the Southern end of the Death Valley area. I live in the Woodinville, WA area and Uller helped me build the Quest kit when I got a little behind to make an event. I am familiar with riding Juniper Dunes too.

For a little more drool factor, two factory 690RR's and two Quest kits all playing together. Orange one is Neduro's former 690RR.

here's your new t-shirt;
You know that roughly 2000 years ago a quite famous book was put together exactly the same way?
And another one roughly 500 years later?

So what you're saying is, that we nail Jan Vessely to some four by two's up there on a hillside in the Andes... get Bluebull to ducument it (embellished a little perhaps) and we can get the whole F5 show elevated to "religion" status?

Well. the fanaticism the few of us display towards this subject clearly justifies "Religion Status". Pope Troy, the First (and only ) it would suit you

I say we go on riding pilgrimage to the Andes and look for the truth on that 4300 m hill. Where can we get a copy of that Stage 3 roadbook, sorry, epistle?

Hi Dimitri, your top mounting plate works great!! Love the rally-style kit. Really balances the bike well, like it was always meant to be this way.

The nailing thing has been done and honestly was a bit crude workmanship.
Thinking more of cable tie to a carbon fibre Nav Tower... wearing nothing than perspex
And religion is this already, but this one is the only true one
At least the only one I'm willing to get up for on a Sunday morning

Indeed, I wasn't sure if it was left or right, Vogels mentions 4ks to the next WP/CP from where he got stuck.
