From SA side there is quad rider Sarel Van Biljon going, and bikers Glen Grundy & Brett Cummings on Hondas, as well as Darryl Curtis and Riaan Van Niekerk.
Did training and navigation course in Namibia recently and David got used to his new KTM RR 450 as well as worked out what all them gadgets on the handlebars were for!!
Dakar rookie, if you haven't been on this forum during previous Dakars, let me tell you that you've found home. If you are able to post any updates before, during or after the Dakar it will be enormously appreciated. Any bivouac/behind-the-scenes stories/pictures will be particularly appreciated. Thanks for posting in this forum!
