I am not aware of any frames that have cracked but they do tend to flex a little.. They have benefitted from some additional bracing last year. Chaleco's connection between the swingarm and linkage was torn off as we all have seen in 2010 too. Only bike that I know it had happened to, could have been due to the extra bracing on the frame which might have exposed a flaw...or not...

Gotta wait for some updates and see what these will bring!

Keep you posted

I must this all sounds very tempting. I always thought these bikes were AWESOME, but was nervous to commit because of the relatively small number in rally circulation.

I had understood that Rally Aprilias kept the welders busy, but I don't know that first hand.

Thanks for the info, and contributions to this thread. In any case I'm sure the bike will be awesome whatever it weighs.

Cheers,
Matthew

GO Simon! Wonder if he'll do the same class as last year.

Wonder of Kemal Merkit has entered again this year?

Both Simon and Kemal are total Dakar junkies, and I love it.

Did you guys see Kemals crash this year? Most of us wouldn't get up, but he just got back on and soldiered on. What a legend.

There was a funny comment on Simon's facebook post about sending in his Dakar entry... Something like "Are you dragging Charlie along on this one again?"

Kemal's crash was unreal. He took a beating on that one.

The special TV show feature they did on him was great, really showed his true grit. I suppose that was done by the organisation, and not just something specially done by Eurosport?

A few years back, another Turk fellow entered with Kemal, I think his name was Kutlu Torunlar? Wonder if he'll be back. I don't think he finished in 2010.

Do I get a free airline ticket to Buenos Aires and free bivouac access if I drive it?

If it's a Rally PanAm deal, then there needs to be 20 tires, 20 bib-mousses, and 2 meters high of other stuff stacked up on that thing.
