Heading South!

Last week Team Bel-Ray Super B Honda  made their final preparations towards  Dakar 2012. Monday night at two o'clock the last truck was closed and two hours later the big diesels were fired up for the trip to the French harbour of Le Havre. The multi coloured procession of 11 vehicles went South and luckily enough the border of Belgium also ended the thick fog the drivers had to cope with the first 200kms.

 After almost 650 kilometers trucks, 4WD’s and vans with the bikes, arrived exactly on schedule at the technical scruteneering. The new colours of Bel-Ray and Super B on the trucks and the armada of red Honda’s attracted a lot of attention.  The work of the mechanics paid off as the bikes passed scruteneering without any problem. The scruteneers even complimented the mechanics for the lay out of the equipment  on the bikes. The Iritrack (the tracking device) is positioned in the fairing instead of on the handlebars. This increases the handling of the bike and the danger that the rider hurts himself on the Iritrack in a crash is zero.

The new compact GPS system with integrated Sentinel (a system that warns the rider when other vehicles want to pass) remains on the handlebar because of visibility reasons. The obliged emergency beacon is placed inside the new designed cockpit.

After the inspections the bikes were loaded into containers and all the trucks an 4WD’s went aboard the gigantic Sao Paolo to set sail to Buenos Aires were the boat will arrive et he end of December. The team will arrive in Argentina around Christmas to prepare for the start in January 1 2012.
