The BIG difference is large amounts of cash (relative to your typical casual owner/ enthusiast) and team support out in the boonies for when you break down. Oh yeah, and the insanely higher speed factor at Dakar.

If I had both of those first two items I would ride a Dakar bike too, but it isn't on my list for a bike I can live with on a daily basis, within my limited budget. No way will I ever ride at Dakar speeds, since I want to die in bed as an old man ;)
