2017 Racing Schedule
For 2017 I'll be racing a highly modified LC8 in the Tuareg, Libya, Hellas, and Africa Eco rallies. Ive got a passion for riding the bigger bikes and always choose to ride them when training, trail riding, or doing other events. Last year I did my 1st rally in Greece on the 950 Super Enduro and then later on in the year rode the 990 adventure into the Dunes of Morocco. This year I took the 950 to the Tuareg Rally and just loved it. I was so amazed by what these big bikes can do. I was expecting the fesh fesh sections to be a nightmare but the bike just smashed through the soft stuff and really proved to me how capable they are.
The custom build will be based on a 950 Adventure and will have custom made front tanks, use a 450 rally fairing, a custom nav tower, new suspension, triple clamps, rear oil tank, Haan wheels, foam filter system, and a bigger radiator. The main objectives are to get the weight off the front end and make the bike feel narrower, generally lighter, and more nimble.
