    Hi everyone, things have been hectic of late with a lot going on. I have a backlog of blog posts to write so hope to find the time to do that on the flight over to the US this coming week.

    For anybody interested and has not seen this advertised elsewhere, I will be presenting my Dakar experiences in fun illustrative presentation evenings across the USA from 30th March. They have gone down well in the UK and I'd like to share with my US followers. There will be cool LPR gear up for grabs too as I will hold a raffle at each event.

    There will be a small charge of $20 for each evening but this is purely to help recover some of the $2500 flight ticket costs and two weeks off work to make this happen. Inmates here have been kind enough to offer up accommodation.

    Details:

    Saturday 30th March 2013 - Sloan's Motorcycle, Murfreesboro, TN, EVENT DETAILS HERE

    Wednesday 3rd April 2013 - Performance Cycle, Denver, CO. Please contact them for information and tickets. INFORMATION HERE

    Friday 5th April 2013 - Piston & Chain Motorcycle Club, San Francisco, CA. TICKETS AND INFORMATION AVAILABLE HERE

    I'm likely to be doing a ride out from Sloan's on the 31st and also in CA on the 6th. It's be great if some of you can make any of the evenings and to meet you in person and maybe even go riding?

    Any questions, please just PM me or email me at lyndon@lyndonposkittracing.com. Hope to see you there!

    Many thanks,

    Lyndon

    No east coast?? :huh

    I know that the support for MC racing is elsewhere, but are you stopping off in the east somewhere on the way in or out?

    Where I come from, Nashville counts as East Coast.....I mean it's over towards the east and about middle for diddle on the vertical. Kinda central for those Easterners!

    I cannot physically get myself into 10 places within a week so I had to take a punt on locations and hope that people would be willing to travel if they really wanted to see the show. The locations were decided by the locations that were willing to put the effort in to getting me there and manage all the logistics. There were other offers later on but to be honest, I had to draw the line.

    If I went to everyone's home town it would take me a year to get around everyone, it'd be fun though, there's an idea :rofl

    Trust you understand Toby, by ticket was $2500 as it was with just three locations and I'm still paying off January's efforts.

    I just wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone that helped contribute towards my telephone costs for the Rally Radio calls that I made during the Dakar.

    A special thanks to Nate to making the calls possible and for facilitating the contribution channels during the race. This was the only real way I was able to connect with you all during the race and although it cost a lot to do it, I know it was worth it.

    It's great to see so many people helped contribute towards the cost. A massive thank you for this.

    This is me making a Rally Radio call from the finish line.....

    I've just read the entire thread over the last week or so. What an amazing adventure. I followed the South African guys during the Dakar and waited up to watch the highlights on TV every night but this was like recording a Tv series and then watching them all back to back. Truly inspiring and honestly felt part of the adventure with all the call ins. Next time I'll be sure to catch your adventure live. Well done!!!:clap:clap:clap

    Good luck on the RBR, FIM Morroco and training/ health upgrades. Like the approach of team development. Can't wait to follow the bike build too. And the funny bits at the end... haha.

    When you do line everything up for a future Dakar entry, I'll be excited to see you break the top 30 overall, and maybe a top 5 in stage or two.

    Cheers!

    Lyndon,

    I was holding off giving my $$ support to anyone else for this Dakar 2014 until I heard from you. I will reserve 2015 for you tho! Who can you recommend for 2014?? :deal
