2010 Mongolian Rally, Yamaha WR450f of Jonah Street
The 2010 Rally Mongolia gets rolling Monday Aug 9th. American Jonah Street will be the first rider to start. He will be riding a rally prepped Yamaha WR450f. Fellow North American riders Mike Shirley and Mike Buhler will be competing on rental bikes, KTM 640’s. As you might be able to tell, the bikes are not exactly Dakar spec. The very stock looking KTM’s are sporting passenger pegs and must be about 5-6 years old based on the graphics and front fender. Jonah’s Yami is sporting a steel frame, so it must have seen a few years of action already also. Best of luck guys.
