If you have 3 kids, are a good but not great rider, are in good but not great shape, and can afford it, do it in a car. It's 80% as much fun and 80% less painful! (but 100% more expensive...) that was my math and you only live once so f*ck it.
This thread is full of gems. Thanks, Benny!

They don't expect you to finish. That's why it's the Dakar. -- PPiA
