    Members with Birthdays Today

    The thread will be taking a short holiday break. Later today I will be joining the Pit Crew for our family gathering. From all the Pit Crew members, the Four Guys inside my helmet (Me, Myself, I and The Other Guy) and the gang down at the official Fly-Over-Land coffee stop

    Merry Christmas

    FWIW

    A new year brings a slightly revised thread. There are some back of the house changes intended to speed putting the thread together and hopefully speed the loading of the thread for you to read. This is still a work in progress.

    Members with Birthdays this Month
    Forum members are the reason we are here. Posts for this thread and its various precursors have started with a birthday greeting.. I have missed some days and memberÔÇÖs birthdays by doing it as ÔÇÿTodayÔÇÖ. The link has changed to the Forums monthly calendar that has all the birthdays.

    Black and Blue
    The threads major categories remain. Black headings such as On the Street are simply category headings for organization. Ones that appear in blue have links to the primary home page for that area. For example SBK links directly to the World Superbike site.

    Reference Library
    The library has moved to its own post within the thread. The Reference Library is a work in progress. The new form just fits within the limits of a single post. I will continue to edit it for ease, clarity and length. Future versions will come. I hope this change will speed loading of the thread and you will still find the library a useful resource.

    Frequency
    LifeÔÇÖs demands are piling up. My goal at this time is a baseline of posts on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and more as they happen. Looking over my records of daily views these are the peak view days. I hope you understand.

    An Apology
    Several members have sent me linkedin requests that I have not responded to. I do not mean to be a snob, I am just a recovering Luddite who is way behind.

    Thank You
    A couple of quick thank you notes seem in order to start the new year.

    First thank you to all the over 5000 Forum members that check in during the past week. I am humbly amazed at your interest in what interest me as I ÔÇÿpurposefully wonderÔÇÖ about the internet (Or there are a lot of Laurel and Hardy fans on the forum).

    Thank you to Vince and the Forum staff for the link on the homepage to this thread. When Vince contacted me about this I felt honored for the opportunity. The thread views had been growing to that point but exploded after the link was put in place.

    I hope the changes work for you.

    Happy New Year and welcome back to the thread.

    STAGE 6 Dakar Rally - 2013 - | Update

    eurosport.yahoo.com: Dakar - Two people have died at the Dakar Rally after a suport vehicle crashed with a taxi late Wednesday evening.

    Dakar 2013 Press Rekease
    Wednesday 9th January 2013
    A serious accident involving 3 vehicles occurred in Peru on Wednesday 9th January at 21.30 hours (Peru time), 10 kilometres from the border with Chile.

    The accident involved a support vehicle with 3 passengers and two taxis, one of them carrying 6 people and the other with 4 people.

    One of the two taxis collided head on with the support vehicle, and the second taxi overturned several times in an attempt to avoid the accident.

    Unfortunately, two of the people in the first taxi ÔÇô one of them the driver ÔÇô died, and 7 others were injured (4 Peruvians and the 3 passengers in the support vehicle). They are being examined in hospitals in Tacna (Peru), where they were taken following the accident.

    Assistance coordination has been put in place by the Peruvian authorities and the organisation of the rally, involving 3 local ambulances, a fire engine and several police officers. The organisation has also jointly deployed 2 paramedic ambulance vehicles from the rally and 2 security vehicles.
    An Antonov aircraft of the Peruvian police has been put on special alert to transport the injured to Lima, in coordination with the rallyÔÇÖs medical service.

    The Peruvian authorities have begun an inquiry into the accident in order to determine the exact causes.
