That implies it's a commuter bike. I called it a touring bike, myself.

Both?

All?


I used to road race, and that same bike was my touring bike, commuter, cafe bike. It was also my only bike...

Sorry guys (and girls !) - I got it wrong - Day 7 was the penultimate day.

But Pyn did win Day 8 overall as well

The guy in position 25th Lawrence Hacking is that the same guy that did Dakar 2001 and wrote a great book about it?

Yes, he is playing "guide" to a fellow who "hired" him

Nasser might have won Hungy Baha on the weekend in the Overdrive Tojo (fourth different vehicle make/test drive in as many weeks ) but the middle east mercinary did so with a kamikaze-like inspired driving effort that had poor Mattias his co-dawg looking for the emergency exit sign on numerous repeated occassions... according to reports from the scene.

Meanwhile the 2 x X-raid MINI's tagged along in their normal stormtrooper style to place 2nd and third. There were a couple of customer girls cars also there... as well as the SthAfrica Ford Rangers, various Overdrive toyota pick-ups, even a new looking (dual cab Sth Africa design inspired) Chevy pick-up (dualcab mid size pick-up are the new DAKAR short black dress it seems...? AND also the latest re-incarnation of the HSX Lancers... so plenty of DAKAR teams racing and testing.

Meanwhile in da' You Ess of Eh..? Rubbie Gordini was in between Casino's at the Venus 2 Rego Bust in the Desert race, to give the Girls hummer a shakedown run in race conditions. Qualifying 8th quickest amongst the Toffe Trucks, he ran hard (like what's new? ), suprising many how capable the restricted Dakar curiosity was against the unlimited big american iron... until just under half race distance, when he found the limits of the gearbox input shaft... all in a day testing for dakar 2015 the team claim philosophically.

The arms race is escallating for Dakar 2015... Toyota, MINI, Gordini, PUGEOT and FORD seem to all be putting in the hours...

And still about Hungarian Baja, Zanotti won with his beautiful TM DKR 450, in front of Ruoso who was faster but got lost on the last day due to bad weather moving/erasing the course fences Just hope to see Ruoso in one of the next Rally Raid, like Merzouga or Morocco
