Raincoats!

Am I missing something? We British don't go to Greece in May for rain; we're coming for 2000k's of hot, sunny and dusty rally riding (with maybe some snow!)

I was there yesterday,

crap I can't stay for the whole week, damn exhibitions the weather was realy, really weird. Sunny, then next minute rain, then cold, then sunny then cloudy then sunny again, then too hot. All that in a matter of 10 minutes. A guy from Norway told me that the weather was beautiful

I met with Jenny and John from Rally Raid, met Donna, then Patsy from DRR, some inmates. Nice to put faces into the nicknames, but I do apologise if I still forget you people. Too much information for my brain .

More than 2000 kilometers, race should be very interesting....

Here comes the motherload from the bivvy,







Now this CRF is a very interesting bike. Factory engine, it even does not have an engine number on it , 22liters of fuel. and very nice custom detailed things... (which we will see later in the photos)








An interesting roadbook switch setup (above the normal switch)

That is the factory engined CRF we were talking about....







https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-P...edium%2529.JPG












Now for some other bikes...
Nice, large tanks

























This is a new, suspension handlebar setup, so far tested for ATV's. Bike versions weill follow, I was impressed with the adjustability/setup... Alhtough I was part of the CAD/manufacturing team it was the first time I was testing it on the ATV
It uses a shock absorber from a bicycle. Fully adjustable, lockable, high/slow speed rebound setting and air compression setting to adjust compression

















it was also nice to see the HDB towers making their way across the Globe and seeing the inmates who were in Tuareg as well.
All the best guys!





















Silicon addition inside the roadbook










https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-3...edium%2529.JPG







New kid on the block














And we were there as well...




































And a friend of mine says to the owner: ''You know that the hunting period is on eh? ''


That was Angelo, Brodovitch's company... Very, very sad that he left this world...



















That's all for now folks ...

Thank you very much for the many, nice and detailed pictures!

The guy with the Trippy, is he going to read the paper roadbook and try to create a Trippy route everynight?

Has anyone else noticed that Armageddon has a "thing" for nav towers design and construction...?

... Dimi... I suggest you seek some professional help for this nav fetish of yours... or we will have to stage an intervention...

I am just watching what others do, so that I don't copy it

Fetish is obvious isn't it? But this is where I can see the ''personality of each rider'' . I like to see the personal touches that everything puts in the bikes there. From the small stickers, to the switch positions...
On the plus side I will try my best to be next Sunday there, so I will make it up. Any preferences?

I know that your answer will be ''The whole bike''

Till later,
D.

Sweet photos already!

The start podium/ceremony is this evening at 9pm - should be quite a party I hope!

All the Torque Racing bikes are through scrutineering - and the LC4-50 is ready to rock!

Lyndon and LukasM turned up late yesterday afternoon and we have adopted them into the Torque tented village! - they are busy prepping their RTW bikes for racing this week - totally hardcore!

More soon, I'll try and get some photos uploaded, although photobucket has been playing silly buggers this week with a 'upgrade' that doesn't actually work?!
