If violent crime is to be curbed, it is only the intended victim who can do it.  The felon does not fear the police, judge, nor jury.  The felon must be taught to fear his victim.

Seems after all that Lyndon got his racing suspension:

After a corrupt Lima customs service I was out of pocket by over $1000 USD in order to get my race Suspension in time for the race. I was basically bribed in order to have it on time, telling me the temporary import process takes up to a month and that the only way was the pay the duty on the value they decide. Both incompetence and unacceptable behavior and needs stopping DHL. At least I got it and after a long night it’s in the bike and ready for action. #perucustomssuck #DHLnothelpingtheircustomers #needstostop

[/quote]I see he says in the video that he can't get his suspension, but later on Instagram seems like he got it and have it installed, after paying $1000 bribe for it to clear customs!

Kan nie verstaan hoekom hy dit nie lankal gekry het nie?

7hours difference between Lima and SA I think.

Is there a rerun of last night's Dakar episode on Supersport? I missed it  >:(

edit - Also link for live tracking or viewing. Anyone have any yet?

Donovan on the start podium just now. Excuse the poor quality screen shot. I just missed Gerry vd Byl #129. Next up Wessel Bosman #99 and then WdT #59

For those not always near a pc/laptop, there is a dakar tracking app. I'm going to give it a bash and see if it works.
