Thanks for adopting me into your team. I'll be dragging a tired 10-year old XR through the desert on this one. Why not?
Sid Milton was one of our team's original mechanics and he wrenched on bikes for us in the Dakar from 2006 to 2010. Last year, Sid and I started talking about the Tuareg. Originally, we thought that we'd ride our bikes from his home in the UK all the way to the rally and back. Then his friend Colin, another of our team Dakar mechanics, decided to come along and drive Sid's van in a support capacity. Mikey Krynock, who rode the Dakar in 2006 with us, decided to come along. Before long, Dave Peckham asked if he could ride in the van too and support some RMS customers out of it. The team grew. Finally, Ned jumped aboard and we suddenly had Sponsors, t-shirts, fans. No longer just a hairball ride for Sid and me. I'm still going on the cheap, however. Planning to work on my own bike, sleeping in a tent next to it.
