i'll be happy to lock and sticky it once doyle has the first post ready, or even create it so people can bookmark it (which i did last year). doesn't matter much to me.

doyle - PM me to let me know!

And I wasn't sure if I belonged there. So now we're full circle, to where this started... nervous anticipation.
Your cost of doing last year's Dakar may have been $xxx,xxx.xx but your take on the experience will forever be PRICELESS.

Thanks Ned!!!

"French porn star prominently featured on Dakar rally bike."



Rider is Frenchman Hugo Payen. Article states that the porn star is supporting him to the tune of $20k Euros, "including the presence of the actress."

Only the presence?



You think this post will make the Rally Raid Twitter feed? I mean, this is my 15 minutes of fame! Finally!!!

A bit off topic, but with 5 days to kill...
When my son was 4 or 5 years old I took him to a car race where he collected all the sponsor cards and stickers that were offered. Upon our return home, he arranged all said cards and stickers on the kitchen table for his mother to admire. After Mom had dutifully fawned over his grand haul of swag, he shoved his hand into his little pocket and produced a fistfull of business card size sponsor cards. They were free admission passes to the strip joint that sponsored one of the cars As one might imagine I was properly berated for taking my eyes off the little guy for long enough to admire the display the sponsor had set up.
