    They left off Kevin Muggleton, who's a Brit living in Denver. 186 on a crf wearing something like my rallymotokit.

    Yeah I clicked through as well, in one of them he talks about the bike and he says it the first time in his Dakar career that he feels the bike exactly as it should be, he seems very satisfied and happy about the husqvarna...

    Usually the Jan 1st podium run meant that at least I wasn't working on that day and I could follow the live start off feed, this year I will be at work when the wheels start spinning.. :cry

    OK, just a few more days of wait left...

    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!

    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."

    [​IMG]

    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." :eek1

    Only the presence? :evil

    :D

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