I got a text from a friend of Jennys, she got away from Paris Ok in the rain, and it is believed things are going well.

The main page has been updated, but still no tracking information, or any other news!

Come on, you'd thing that three days in they'd have something ! Especially as there's already been one SS.

Can anybody figure out the tracking system on the H/L web page? If this is how they intend to operate the tracking I might as well not bother.


Hopefully over the next day or so things will improve.

To follow Jenifer (sic) go here FollowMap.

I ticked the following boxes - In Display Mode: Teams, Courses and Checkpoints, and in Classes: Moto (in the drop down menu) and 10 Jenifer Morgan.

It seems to take a while to load up, but after a bit a small grey ball appeared representing Jen and a blue line representing their course.

Hope that works.

Hopefully the H/L site will be ok now.

They came from . : XT660.com The #1 xt660 resource : . | The #1 xt660X, xt660R and xt660Z Tenere resource, a member for France put them up, the links are to his flickr account.

There is a whole thread, very similar to this one here: .: XT660.com - The #1 XT660 Resource :.

The photos are on page 31, but it's the whole bike build from start to finish, along with some rather nice Alu-porn

I think Patsy is running the support for Jenny, but I could be wrong.

From what I can make out from the H/L website is that Jenny came 4th, perhaps Jen will post to give an account of the rally as I found the official site to have been of a very poor standard.
Anyway, Well done Jen x

Hi Dave/everyone!

Yes, I have returned in one piece after all!

Based on individual rider classifications/scores, I finished 7th in the bike class, but due to the strange way the organisation like to do things (most of us never fully understood the penalty scoring system for example!), based on the overall team classifications, it meant as a solo rider, I finished 4th overall, which, if you'd asked me on that second day in Morocco... I could never possibly have imagined!

There are so many stories to tell, and I will be writing a feature for TBM magazine together with the few photos I managed to get, having lost my main camera somewhere in the dunes near Merzouga on that fateful '2nd day' in Morocco - suffice to say it was not a good day for the Brits, or the Desert Rose Racing team as a whole to be honest!

During the event I was able to phone in some reports to Rally Raidio, and there are links on the Heroes-Legend threads I started on ADVrider and on XT660.com:

Hero? Legend? Fool? - Page 4 - ADVrider

.: XT660.com - The #1 XT660 Resource :.

Check out those links for info in the meantime! I really need to catch up on some sleep now!

After TBM have paid you for your write-ups,
would you then post them on here for the benefit of people that don't have access to TBM or don't like the magazine in general! Come on Jen, share your experince with ALL of us! x

Don't worry, I'll be at Ripley with a slide show next year x

Together with my personal shots, at considerable expense I've bought a CD of photos from the official photographers - don't want to give too much away too soon, but here are a few to whet your appetites!

Good for you, glad you came back OK.

As I read on the H/L site you came in 1st in the girl's category.

Excellent, all my best!!

Thanks Serge... although in the interests of fairness, I should point out that was rather by default - there are still very few women involved in long-distance rallying...

Still, it meant I won 3 nights in a fantastic Austrian 5-star hotel - result!
