    Me, too. Would appreciate info on wheel/tire setup, forks, and other fundamental mods that make it more offroad worthy.

    Michnus,

    Thanks for the link. All I can say is WOW! Truly an impresive trip.

    A few years ago I spent a couple of weeks touring through Mexico on a KTM 640. We did over 2000 miles off-road there. It was a hell of a lot of fun, but did not pose the challenges y'all experienced (much safer, gas/water/food everywhere, and I speak a fair amount of spanish). I am planning another trip down there this spring. But this time I'll be a lot more comfortable on the Dakar!!!

    Here are a couple of recent pics of my Dakar, loaded for travel.

    1. August 2007 -- near Atlantic City, Wyoming. Fully loaded and heading north towards the start of my Great Divide ride


    [​IMG]

    Same trip -- along the Lolo Motorway, in Idaho:

    2. September 2007 -- packing lighter (tank panniers instead of Jesses), and on my way to do part of the Alpine Loop near Lake City, Colorado

    [​IMG]

    Every time I'm tempted by something newer, smaller, bigger, faster, or more off-roadable, I take a step back and remind myself what a versatile machine the Dakar is. For those of us limited to one bike in our garage, it does many tasks quite well. :clap

    +1 Hakatan. It is a very versitile bike. This weekend I rode 400 miles, a lot of those off road and was still in great shape when I arrived home.

    That IS a bicycle pump BTW. I was riding motorcycle SAG for a bicycling event and thought the bike pump would be more useful since it had both Presta and Shrader heads whereas my portable, electric pumps only had Shrader heads and no Presta adapter in site. Gotta work on this. And maybe some pannier bags for the next Big Trip so's I can leave the so-long-it-blocks-the-fuel-door-duffel-bag at home.
