Pres release from GHR Honda:

LEG 1 - Setting the scene for a week of off-road action

It was a day of highlights and lowlights for Leg 1 of the Australasian Safari. Sand traps, tricky twisting navigation and rugged terrain in three stages in and around Northampton and Kalbarri in Western Australia.

Last year’s moto winner Jake Smith had his plans for a follow-up Safari victory shattered in the last portion of Leg 1. After winning both the first and second stages by nearly a minute, engine failure in the last stage forced him to stop. Brother and former Safari winner Todd Smith finished the Leg in second place, and said despite a slow start he had finished well. “The first stage was really sandy and soft and the front wheel sunk. I came off and it took me a little while to get my flow back. Later on I had to slow down for some sheep but the rest of the ride was smooth.” He starts 455 km of Leg 2 second on the road.

Leg 2 promises to be another testing day for the moto field. Three selectives cover a wide variety of terrain, with tight sections interspersed between flat-out fence line dashes.

SS2/1 Kalbarri - 230.00km: Opens with 50km of defined coastal tracks over mixed terrain, heading north through Murchison Station before turning inland. Fence line tracks cut into low scrub pass through Nerrin Nerrin and Coburn Stations. 25 km of the “Snake Road” leads to the Hamelin Service Area.

SS2/2 Gladstone - 110.89km: Low lying bay country between Hamelin Pool and the North West Coastal Highway hosts SS2/2. Highly variable tracks - sandy in places, rough and rocky elsewhere and occasionally swampy - cross Hamelin, Carbla, Yaringa and Wooramel Stations.

SS2/3 Jimba Jimba - 113.77km: The last selective starts on Pimbee Station with a narrow tight rally road heading east towards the old Pimbee Homestead site. The course then turns northwards along a twisty rally road, deviates east briefly and turns north once more into dune country. The stage closes with a mixed bag of tight twisty tracks, narrow fence tracks and low creek country.

Remember Glen Grundy, him with the Honda that disintegrated under him on the second day of Dakar earlier this year? He is racing, the sly bugger, though not with GHR Honda.
George Booker, the guy organising the African Safari rally planned for April next year, is there as a spectator.


Go Glen!

Garth Roberts is another South African riding, and he has a rather interesting story.

Competing at the Australasian Safari has been a long time dream and been in the making for the past 3 years. However the idea to race in Pink for Cancer  came to me believe it or not, while watching a super rugby game played in New Zealand with the refs wearing pink, and I’ve always wanted to race in pink like back in the 80’s and 90’s when I raced and real men wore pink.

Wearing pink was a small part of the idea, the real idea evolved around our sport that doesn’t do much on a world stage for charities like Cancer, it’s always about growing the sport or ourselves. Wearing pink and letting people in our sport know that so much can be done for Cancer with very little effort, especially like a race as the Australasian Safari Rallye that is followed by thousands of people worldwide. This is why I am racing for Cancer representing CancerVive at the Safari Rallye and dedicating this ride to Shaun Gunther and ex Multiple National champion S.A. Pro Quad rider, who was diagnosed with Sernovial Sarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of Cancer, Shaun only has 12 months to live, BUT, he is not giving up and is in a race for his life and this is my way of showing support to him!

Just about everyone reading this will have been touched by cancer in some way, either personally or immediate family or close friends. Cancer has such a large footprint in our lives that is truly scary, hence why I decided to do something for others that is greater than our sport or myself, and our sport being such an amazing medium to reach so many people locally and on a international level by partnering with Cancervive South Africa, FIM Africa, MSA & Australasian Safari Rallye organisation to make this initiative a success.

The initiative will be headed by Frieda Henning of Cancervive SA, with phenomenal passion and resources run by people who themselves are survivors. A well established Cancer NGO that already has an annual 7 day motorcycle Cancer ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town supported by Triumph to raise funds for cancer and educate people along the way about cancer. Frieda also got the Breast Cancer Network Australia on Board and they will be manning a stand on behalf of Cancer.vive and BCNA at the Rallye. So the Rallye idea was a great fit to develop this partnership with myself and CancerVive as an ambassador, collaborating and partnering with corporate / individuals to sponsor kilometres that I will completing at the Safari that will go towards Cancer, as well as raising awareness by wearing pink!

Anybody interested to make a donation to the cause can go to www.cancervive.co.za (http://www.cancervive.co.za) and click on DONATE. Then choose the “Think Pink” icon and make your contribution. Every small bit helps to spread the message of the importance of early detection, which is key to survival!!!

The initiative was launched at the Botswana Desert Race 20 June 2013 where I raced in pink race kit and also creating awareness with the partnership of Cancervive and FIM Africa who already has a cancer initiative running that was also showcased at the annual AMID Motorshow in Johannesburg. There will many other partnerships, ideas that will contribute to the overall initiative and create awareness for cancer, by utilising the medium of our sport that is loved and followed by so many people worldwide! You can form part of this much needed cause or be a sponsor or just support the project in your own way, for more visit www.cancervive.co.ca (http://www.cancervive.co.ca) or www.fim-africa.com/ (http://www.fim-africa.com/) or contact myself or Frieda Henning directly Frieda Henning frieda@mweb.co.za or Garth Roberts garth@robertsracing.co.za

And some from Glen.
I see he is using the Dirt Bike Rallye Trip Computer rather than ICOs. This thing look interesting, but expensive at $695.00. However, two ICOs would cost $640....

Dirt Bike Rallye Trip Computer has been inspired, designed and tested by the GHR Honda team.  This Rallye Trip Computer is of billet aluminium construction and has a replaceable lens cover.  Features include the ability to look at your speed and your odometer at the same time on the one screen -  no need to flick between screens or have two ICO's fitted.  This unit comes with a hard wired (no joins) thumb control and mounts up to your handlebars next to your left thumb.  The unit mounts perfectly with the DB Rallye Trip Computer and Map Reader Mount Kit.  It is powered by its own source and lasts up to 5000 hours.

Functions include:
- Five adjustable trip meters
- Peak speed function recorded
- Average speed over distance
- Average speed over time
- Stop watch function
- Actual elapsed time recorded
- Elapsed time recorded while riding
- Time of Day Clock function
- Configurable features include; adjustable tyre size, auto clear and varying screen displays such as speed showing or not, decimal point placement on odometer.

Optional external light kit available along with replacement magnet, sender cable and lens cover.

Some interesting bikes. The Aprilia looks sexy, not sure what a "CPW Rally 450" is, or a "BMW Rooney 850", and some brave soul is again riding a BMW R65.

I can't find any live tracking, demmit. They will have finished Stage2 by now.

Nice coverage there, Steve!

:thumleft:


Its a pity George Booker is using this rally for a learning session, they never do any off piste riding and the navigation is a so easy it might as well just be an offroad...  :-\ Notice there is no CAP repeater on Glen's setup, because they run fence lines most of the time and its a case of left-right on tracks.

I found this about the "2013 BMW Rooney 850". 2013 is when the modification was completed, not exactly when the bike was first produced. It is in fact a 1980s vintage BMW GS, heavily modified by Paul Rooney.   http://rooneycycle.wordpress.com/cycles/ (http://rooneycycle.wordpress.com/cycles/)
The rider describes the bike from around 1:50 in the video.
Later on they talk to the nuts in the sidecar  :biggrin:

The Australasian Safari is (I think?) the second rally where the rather interesting Aurora Roadbook holder is being tested.
Have a look at http://aurora-rally.com/Newsuk.html, (http://aurora-rally.com/Newsuk.html,) or at http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7ip0A_09EsNIqx8IR0Vb6w (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7ip0A_09EsNIqx8IR0Vb6w)

I like their engineering approach, which is rather similar to what we used to do in military product development. Build something that you believe will be tough enough, do your damnest to break it, make it tougher where it broke, iterate until it is genuinely tough enough (or, more often, until the development budget runs out and/or the project manager gets the moer in with you for breaking every part that you build)

Very interestly, they have mounted sensors on the bike to characterise the environment that the roadbook gets exposed to. "We will be gathering data from two dataloggers placed on John's navigation tower. A 3-axis accelerometer to measure g-forces during the Rally and a thermometer to measure the temperatures that the equipment is exposed to. These data will be logged by John and then we will use them to improve our equipment. By gathering data all over the world we will have just enough information to know the extremes (falls, crashes, global max and min temps etc) so that we improve the materials, the strength etc"
Very cool, I would love to get a look at that data and compare it to military profiles.

Some photos of the Aurora roadbook installed on the race bike:

A little birdie told me I will be getting one to test as well, so I will be able to give you the low down on it. Looks like a great product.

Go south Africans!

I wonder if they had any trouble today, theyre both far down the ranking.

I see the bikes with the mini-fairing have their 'tower' attached to the forks or triple clamps instead of the frame, like the full-faired bikes.

I assume this lightens the bike quite a bit but puts more weight on the bars - dunno which is better.

Seems a good conversion for our local rallies, enabling the bike to be returned to stock fairly easily, and will save on costs as well.

Any thoughts?

Just thinking ahead to the next amageza, etc .............  ;)

Great pics, BTW, now I really wish I was back on a bike
Title: A rocky road for the motos in Leg 3 of Australasian Safari
Post by: SteveD on September 23, 2013, 02:58:33 pm
From http://www.australasiansafari.com.au (http://www.australasiansafari.com.au)

A rocky road for the motos in Leg 3 of Australasian Safari
While the auto leaders made it through relatively unscathed today, the bikes took more of a hammering and Safari is living up to its reputation as Australia’s toughest off-road motorsport event.
Western Australia’s Gascoyne was the scene for 432 hard competitive kilometres of racing today in two stages, and the course offered up what the region is renowned for – rich red earth, rugged ranges and rock formations, cattle stations and dry creek beds. 
It was also a challenging day for Safari’s medical team because today’s Leg 3 is the most remote part of the event.  All injuries reported to the medical team were from moto competitors and experienced Safari competitor Warren Strange was airlifted by Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) to Perth as a precaution, after he crashed his bike early in the first stage.  The RFDS was on site within three hours and Strange is in a serious but stable condition.

Rod Faggotter regained his moto lead while Todd Smith moved to second place after experiencing some dramas today.  Matt Fish is putting in a strong performance and is sitting third overall.
Faggotter said he was happy to be back in the lead.  “I really pushed it along today trying to keep the ride smooth.  I had no navigation errors and my only issue was windburn.   The bike is going smooth, sweet as a nut.”
Smith didn't have such a smooth day, coming off his bike in the second stage.  “I damaged my front wheel, map reader and handlebars 130km into the second stage.  It also popped the fuel cap and I lost fuel when I was riding, so for 50km I had to ride at quarter throttle.”
Despite having stitches in his forehead, Matt Fish was in good spirits and finished second in the second stage and sits in third outright.  “I tipped the bike over, and the ‘safety’ goggles cut my forehead. The terrain was very challenging and unforgiving today but I’m happy.”
Shane Diener had a strong day finishing in outright fourth and continues to hold the Dakar Challenge lead.
“I’m pretty happy with today.  I had to stop in the first stage to fix the tension in my wheel and lost about four minutes.  I overshot a few turns and missed a corner but didn't have any other navigation errors.  Today’s long second stage was really challenging to push through and do that distance without a break.”

Both the South Africans are still going. Results below, plus some peechas.

Yes this is the cheapest setup for a rally bike, but you are right it does have its disadvantages too in that there is "more to steer" and if you flip the bike your nav. gear will likely be killed. This was discussed at length earlier in the Amageza thread if you want to have a look.

And from Garth via FB (edited slightly)

"What a day...had such an awesome first special of 150km...started at the back cos of my nav tower breaking yesterday, passed all the slow guys. Really good special. The 2nd special of 288km was rough and fast. I went very well until 182km when I got lost with another fast rider. A slower rider that we had passed earlier shot in front if us. When we found the route, I tried to pass and hit a big rock in 4th - went down hard. Nothing broken but very sore....I managed to do the last 80km at pace but I lost 35min at end of the special. Will see what the results say."

Results from Day 4 have been posted. The field is thinning out quite a bit, with some discussion on ADVrider about reasons. "Submitting relatively small, internal high combustion single cylinder, multi-valve four srtoke engines to hours of heat, dust and rough terrain abuse at sustained high speeds" sounds the best so far.

Both of our guys are still in  :biggrin: but the sexy Aprilia is out, as are both of the classic 1980's BMW boxers. One of the BMW riders is out with a broken collarbone.  :o

From http://www.australasiansafari.com.au (http://www.australasiansafari.com.au)

"At 9.33am today there was an incident involving moto competitor 19, Ivan Erceg, on Stage 1, 50km east of Minilya Roadhouse near Carnarvon in Western Australia.
Despite the immediate intervention of emergency services, he died at the scene as a result of his injuries.
Australasian Safari Event Director Justin Hunt said:  “We extend our sincerest sympathies to Ivan’s family, team members and friends at this time.  Ivan was one of life’s huge characters and was loved by the entire Safari family.
“He was a true competitor who loved his motorbikes and the mateship of competition. He will be sorely missed.”
A full investigation of the circumstances surrounding Ivan’s death has already commenced and organisers are providing full cooperation.
The remainder of today’s Leg of the Australasian Safari was cancelled but the event will resume tomorrow."
