I love my '07 990S Dakar, plan to run it as long as I can.

So, 8 minutes between two contenders on penultimate day of Dakar and we are bashing KTM road bikes.
Only on AdvRider.

Is Kurt still in the lead? he's dropped off my radar again.
If being able and willing to change fuel pump/filter, injector or regulator along the road, and be real anal about earthing points is what it takes, I'm willing.

Back to Dakar - and another one of those "is it just me" moments:'

He did say that, but sometimes his data and translations are a little off.

one thing I didn't get is why pedrero didn't wait for cdp. Caselli was 4 minutes down the road and Cyril only got pedrero at wp5....150km. A lot can happen in 150km
