Question

I predict one Dakar with another make, then back to KTM eating humble pie.

All the other threads I have seen it in are in the Racing sub section, not everyone looks in there, but a lot of people are interested in the news.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

It's going to be very interesting if Honda are making a serious push into the Dakar event. It can only be a good thing for another major manufacturer to compete with the KTMs in, lets face it, a bit of a second rate comp (meaning it doesn't TV rate as highly as NASCAR / MotoGP / V8 supercars etc)

Certainly it means if they can build on success, maybe one day a Honda 'rally spec' machine for the average joe might appear. CRF with a 25 litre tank standard... hmm you have my attention Honda-san.



as far as this:

First of all don't bring that bullshit here. Normal folk don't google thier every thought before they have a bit of a casual browse through a forum. Personally I only read the Australian forum here because that's what I'm into and the other ones tend to be full of self righteous wankers who think they are more awesomely awesome than every other poster.

My dear old mom said it's ok to have an opinion, but do I need to google it every time I forment one?

Might be the thing Honda need to get there focus back toward a good adventure bike.

Probably not.

KTM have a new 450 Rallye bike being developed this year.
