Thanks

Thanks for the great meet and greet last night. I was surprised to see Johah at this event and it really made it great. I know you guys are busy with details. So thanks for taking the time out for it. Glad I stayed to hear the question and answer part. It was telling of just how much goes into something like Dakar racing or racing of this sort in general. Good luck with the Yamaha and sounds like you guys are off on a good start.

Proud to be a new Riff Raff and did not know just how important the sponsorship fan-club program is for your budget.


So Fellas, sign up for the program if you can.

SS

Laugh Good Luck Jonah & Niles!





Lots of fun last night! Jonah drove south twelve hours from Washington, his rally racebike appeared in order to be loaded into the transportation company's truck that had driven up from Los Angeles that day in order to turn around and deliver the Yamaha WR450 to the airport so that it could begin its journey to South America today ...



I met one ADV'er on a KLR, who was from France, and missed meeting a few more. Super Suz was there, as was Dave Peckham (GSNorCal) ...

A bunch of people signed up for the Riff-Raff crew, and the tip jar on the bar, as well as some other cash was provided to Jonah by the SFMC ...

Jonah and Niles seemed happy and excited about their prospects ... Good luck to both of them!

There's some more pics here:

See you in the bivouac,

At first I thought that was a fin on the front fender. Must be going pretty fast to have to have a vertical stablizer/ruddery setup...

Had a great time, signed the guest book! I was short on time, so I only got to check out the Yamaha and the retired kTm Rallye. SFMC has a great clubhouse! So much history!
