    There are pics and some info of the build on the Freedom Rally Racing facebook page.

    Scott Spears and the Freedom Rally crew are the people that were behind the scenes and helped Luis complete the Dakar.

    Great job, Luis!

    Please do me a favor, and never do this again.

    Staying up late, late, late every night to be sure you made it to the ASS cost me a lot of sleep. :lol3

    This is the most humble, subtle first post to a thread...

    How many people did not even get to the last line "...last year we tried it on a 150...."...????

    Luis, Congratulations on your incredible achievement. You are an inspiration to many and have taught us a great life lesson about overcoming the odds! :clap
