Wonderful photography - THANK YOU

KH, it is my opinion that your photographs have thus far captured the tone and color of the DAKAR 09. We visited La Rual yesterday and having witnessed the reality, I can honestly say your very professional photographs will give anyone interested true definition and the feel of this monumental event. DAKAR 2009 Absolutely brilliant!

Don't know how you did it, you really got up close and personal with the bikes, cars and trucks... and the participants, GOOD WORK and thank you.

Jeff of GlobeBusters is now in Santa Rosa with the GlobeBuster's new support vehicle and a braudy group of 5 GobeBuster's BMW riders ( 4 Brits and 1 Irish) with Kev in the lead should have left this AM to join him...

We will be watching news coverage and standing by for the finish in B A. Let's get together after the DAKAR. thank you for your excellence. I have been curious.... Are you related to Heinz "spice family?" Or, possibly Paul Henze, a North American? We were in Ankara, Turkey at the same time. xfiltrate
