Comedy Charity Off-Road Racing - HELP!!!!
As some of you will be aware I am leading a team of three riders on Domino's delivery bikes in the Budapest to Bamako Rally. We were told that we could enter for free but it transpired that the organisers meant in the 'touring category'. When I tried to argue that we should be in the race category I got a very stern 'no way, not on those bikes, you wouldn't have a chance'.
After some persuasion they have agreed to let us race, but will charge us one race fee (rather than three, which is nice) and the bikes need to be up to the job.
As we are all pizza delivery riders coming up with the race fee will be a bit tricky so we are trying to 'crowd source' the funds, with some success. Would any fellow hubbers be able to chip in 5 pounds to help cover the costs? We need another 980 people to contribute and this will cover all the bike mods, the race fee, the CB radios and the spares for the bikes and the support vehicle (which was an e-bay purchase for 325 quid, so might be worse than the bikes!). In return everyone that helps will get a mention as one of the 'good guys' on our site and we will be posting the ride reports on here as well as carrying th eflag (OK, sticker) for Horizons Unlimited.
If we get the mods right I think we have a good chance of winning!
PM me for payment details.
We are also selling off all of my other bikes:
'89 FZR600, lots of work done already and will look MINT when done
Peugeot Chavfight 120 2-smoke (Speedfight surely, ed.)
Cagiva Elefant 750 with touring set up and new off-road tyres and rear shock
BMW K1100LT (it's not mine but a friend has donated it to the cause)
Some kind of Jap commuter, about 750 (details to follow)
As we get these tidied and MoT'd we will post pics in the 'for sale'
