Might need a Rally Moto kit, but basically stock.

Hey Ted, Hogwild posted that James Embro was injured on the Hi-way today. Not known if he went to the hospital or in the Bivouac. They are looking for someone in the Bivouac that might be able to find out any info from the Bivouac.

You can reach him at 310.200.3330

Damn! Wonder how that happened? Bummed for him, *fingers crossed* that it's bad reporting or superficial...

Just got back from competitors tent, he hurt his eye but was reported to be in the bivouac...Robb went and talked to their support team and James and one of his support crew went to the hospital. Pure speculation here but it may have been a rock kicked off another vehicle that caught him in the eye...PURE speculation

He's going to have an MRI or CT scan to see how bad the damage is, but is considering continuing in the race tomorrow depending on what he learns at the hospital and how he feels in the morning. So, things are sounding a bit better now than earlier. Thanks everyone who PM'd me!

We set Toby up with a tent, mattress and sleeping bag as Patsy and crew haven't made it to the bivy yet


Sweep truck just drove by with 12 bikes on it, I suspect from yesterdays stage.

@RallyPanAm tweeted that the ASO has James as finishing the day. This is great news if James is physically to carry on.

They also said that many of then support trucks have not made it to the bivy yet. The KTM truck is not there any the KTM manager is having a cow!

I am sure many riders besides the werks risers are depending in that truck.
