    Some seriously long days in the saddle. Five days totaling over 500 miles, one being 636. One of the 500 mile days is a 470 mile SS!

    A lot of LONG liaison sections too... this is where the LC4-50 ought to shine in comparison to more MX derived machines.

    Man this is getting real! Our bikes are stickered, the van is packed and we're ready to rock! Damn our bikes look good.
    Massive thanks to all of those that have helped us this year.

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if there has ever been a father/son team riding bikes in any of the Dakar's previous years?

    Good quote by a good dude.
    Hide H. has worked for Honda America and with JCR for years. He inquired if I knew of any riding above 8000ft around here but only in Colorado. I only wished.
