Thumb David Knight...

...one of my neighbours has had a Manx coin minted in his honour

...I believe he does a bit of off-road riding occasionally

The downfall of David Knight begins !!
how can he change from Orange to Red ? Traitor!!!i say .
Seriously ,i hope it all goes well for him ,will be interesting to see how competitive he will be , it seems in the past ex KTM factory riders struggle a bit after leaving and riding other bikes ,(Salminen ,Cervantes, Tarkkala,)

from isle of man to Dakar...?

knighter to Honda...


Maybe a "ballistic" addition to the HRC rally program in 2014... ish?

(they're the "other" place to be if rally is on the radar... maybe?)

The pressure on him would be intense. In addition to the riding skills, which he no doubt has, he'd have to also be very good at navigating. Is he?

Lots of pressure...
