Dakar.......you must be freaking stoked :)
I'm certainly freaking... there is still an awful lot up in the air at the moment, and only three weeks before everything has to ship...
The good news is I got back on a bike for the first time today - took my new WR out for 100 miles to break it in, and I really want to get a few hundred miles on that spare engine before I strip the bike next week...
I must say, it was still painful getting on and off the bike, but riding (on the road) was ok at least... just great to be back on two wheels really!
My heel (that was broken) has never been the problem really, it is more my ankle joint and all the ligaments that were damaged - that is where the pain is still... I'm doing my best to walk without crutches now, and hopefully get some strength back in those muscles... I'd also like to get out on the mountain bike in the next week or two too... let's hope all that works, as the prospect of pushing a stuck bike through sand dunes with my foot in this shape does not bare thinking about!
