Tim, thanks for finishing this.
Thanks for sharing that ride! What a read!!
Truly inspiring, and entertaining even considering there's almost no pictures. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for finishing this Bug. It's been an epic read.
Is there a movie coming out ???:eek1
Thanks for the great ride
Nice, thanks for finishing the report!
So, where do I order the 2010 team shirt?
Tim, a great report and for those of us who spend our lives trapped inside cloth covered cubes, you are the man.
Thanks for scaring the living shit out of me, and in the process producing one of the epic reports.
Thanks for taking us along.
One of the best written reports that I have ever read here or anywhere else!!! Thanks for sharing this with us!
Yep, what he said 'truly epic'
I have been reading this since you first started posting your Dakar adventure. You have expressed the highest highs, and the lowest lows absolutely perfect. I felt what you were feeling almost like I was there. Your sense of humor is fantastic. I have never laughed so hard as I did during your desriptions of your stay at the hospital, normally not something that is funny, but sometimes you have to laugh or your going to cry.
I passed the link on to my Dad, and he has passed it on to several people. Their response have all been the same, this would make an incredible book.
Been following since day 1. Thank you for finishing it up. Incredible story
Lovely writing. Thanks for finishing.
And now....your thoughts on the latest Dakar?
Strong words for a guy who couldn't finish it.
Come back when you get rid of the training wheels.
Strong words for a guy that hasnt contributed anything to ADV.
I hope you have a personal relationship with Bug. Otherwise your comments might not be taken very well.
Thems big words or bigger balls.
As only a competitor in this year's race has any right to make such a dismissive statement.
My guess is a big mouth spouting balls.
Whatever your views on the race relocation are,
it still takes true grit & guts to compete.
Shit happens & not even the best always finish.
But to have tried and failed is more than many: who fail to try.
Good for Bug for having put together his entry team, found finance and then rode.
The icing for us Dakar afficianados, was a gripping narrative that engaged us all,
as well giving us an insight into what it takes to enter & then ride a Dakar as a privateer.
If you have similar exploits, then please share with us your adventures;
otherwise forever hold you peace knocking an honest effort that took courage,
commitment & serious finance to put together.
Awesome report Tim! It was worth the wait for the finish.
I just mean, I have more respect for the Dakar and its riders to EVER call it a farce. I just didn't like reading those words about something that I have spent so much energy trying to understand and experience (short of being there). It was like hearing someone call your mama fat or something. Gut reaction. I didn't actually mean disrespect. The report was beautiful.
