Lot to recover to get back into top ten

So maybe those fuel tanks need to be a few liters bigger??

I would be looking for new ones, there are a number bikes out already, surely they cant be that hard to get? Bear in mind he has no more money left,.

What a guy, buys a bike and ships it, no support, just goes for it.

Pls let me know if there's a way to send him a few pesos. How much does a mousse cost, anyway?

Damn, if he isn't the closest I've ever seen to the definition of optimism
If ANYONE can pull it off, Manuel can. That guy is truly amazing and I hope he has a bright future in rally racing.

Time for a who-knows-who mousse APB in the Bivy!
