Vogels out, broke his collarbone for the 2nd time this year. Had no idea how he came off so must have had some bang on the head

Back home by Monday , hopefully in time for a quick operation and recovery in time for Dakar.

Oh I am far from an orange fan...in fact the opposite in that I am super stoked HRC and CDPYammy are offering up some serious competition. but in predicting the win...well....Coma and the KTM factory team simply seem to end up on top more often than not.

If i were to pick someone to be on top it wouldn't be an alien...i won't be cheering for Marc....simply stating I predict he pulls off the win.

Marc, Helder and CDP have limited years left in them....Pain, Bam Bam, Sam....a new crew of up and comers are on their way...cool to each of them being mentored by different aliens, different teams, etc

I am just babbling now...

Really it was just the stator they required....the neon red lights pulled more of a draw than was expected

Yup - definitely a motor - but of course none of the Hondas NEED a new motor, everything is running smoothly and according to plan and the mechanic is just running up and down the steps to the truck to keep fit

Thanks to Pyndon, F5's own embedded reporter for Stage 6, we have a closeup of the Honda rear lighting arrangement.

Maybe I am slow, but, I just didn't notice that the red things on the rear tanks were the tail lights for the Honda Rally.



I noticed them a few days ago and just thought that the photographer made the red part stand out during post editing. Definitely new to me though.

"A motor"? In the singular? How about "Are those motors?" in the plural! That way the next two sitting on the platform waiting for the mechanic's next trips get included. Or maybe he just pulled them all down so he could select the best looking one?

1 of those motors is the rumored 6 speed gbox version...

More from Lydon Poskit Racing



Here you go fella's, had to get up at 5:30 this morning for these! Spent a good bit of time talking to KC and the mechanics from KTM that I met on this years Dakar. The new bike is sweet and I learned a lot about it More on my return.....



(I guess with a bike like that it is rather easy to sneak up to the starting line. )

Nah, just getting the 3 ready for Mergouza next week - maybe a boring but true reason?
