  3. Yeah...But could be just thing for our ailing tourist up here...
    I work up here servicing the mines...they always seem to find a
    way to get their way...and a few bikes will do a lot less damage.
  4. Done 2 :wink:
  5. So no reason to not sign it :?
  6. Done, only 35 signatures so far so lets get signin!!!
  7. I dunno, Dakar in Australia could be a bit dull.

    No mountains of paperwork, visas, passports and the like for the 700 nations you race through.

    No civil unrest.

    No minefields from long-past wars.

    No demilitarised zones from ongoing wars.

    Where's the adventure?! :p :LOL:
  8. Why, dodging booby-traps set by greenies, of course! :p

    (ever seen the booby-traps the locals set for the Baja 1000? :shock:)

    Yes, they'll be there, demanding an end to polluting, anti-social motorsport (getting there in their 4WDs, prolly). All the more reason to push it through.

    Actually, I think there's a good chance of this kind of event rotating around the world, although the brand new Rallye Transorientale (St Petersburg to Beijing) may already have stolen a lot of the thunder. A lot of comeptitors said it was actually harder than the Dakar.
  9. only up to 37... kids of today... won't even get of their backsides to use the Interweb...
