    atrophy. I have been following the Light with great interest. Australia was well represented in the placings, with ex pat Ian Green #16. Ian McPhee #24 and Martin Little & Rebecca McCallum #59. The Large V-Stream windscreen on Martin's BMW R1200RT was a gift from myself and my wife. Have to help out our local riders where possible. Also Ian suffered drive shaft problems [nothing new on BMW's] and was loaned another to finish. Great win for Jim Owen.  :821: :158:

    Yes, great win for Jim.  He has been a very talented LD rider for some time.

    Believe me when I tell you that Butt Lite is not a 5 day rally, it is ever bit of 6 loooonnnnggg days.  My Trophy performed well.  The rider not so much.  Good plans but poor execution.  A camera issue cost me dearly in points on the first leg. 

    Rick Armour was a beast on his beautifully equipped 2013 model and scored a 4th place finish.  Don Duck's Trophy took a nap on a wet and muddy gravel road that cost him several hours waiting for assistance to get it upright again.

    I learned a lot through this experience.  I could do with a bit more of an organized top case and will be adding some better aux lights.  Possibly will add some additional capacity to my water supply.

    My finish arrival:

    Great pics! Anyone know what kind of auxiliary lighting this guy has? Those look huge! Wonder how they are mounted.



    Also like the fork-mounted amber LEDs on this bike. Anyone know what they are?
