The 450 rally bikes look fantastic,anyone heard any feedback on what riders from the larger capacity single/multi cyclinder rally bike era would rather ride?

I read an interview with Marc Coma, he said overall he prefers the 450 because you can ride it more like an enduro bike in the technical sections.

Maybe where they were testing, that was the best tire for the terrain.

That terrain doesn't exist.

I use the front MT21 as it's a good cheap general purpose tyre and I can get >10,000km out of one.

I didn't realise Patricia Watson-Miller raced as recently as 2006! She's German and now resides in the UK too :P
Also, to everyone else posting pics, thanks. This is an mazing thread and I will, once again, have trouble getting up in the morning.

I am sure Hugo Payen's sponsor (Marc Dorcel) can transform a Harly into the best looking Dakar-bike by far.
