Dakar ndon - great!
From the bottom of Africa - great news and good luck. Enjoyed Neduro's experiences, no the Pyndon's - can't wait.
Listening to the guys from SA that took part it's the time in the saddle each day, repeated over many days and the speed that does you in; not technical difficulty. My guess: back down a tweak from navigating the Baja SE speed and you'll go great A 450 should be 25kg lighter too?
