You had all of us on the edge of our seats everyday, and night. I'm so glad you made it. You are a man of steel.

Congratulations Luis, an epic ride & adventure. I love the never give up attitude & your awesome McGuyver skills.

Can you tell us about your bike? Is there already a site where you explain the buildup & modifications?

There are pics and some info of the build on the Freedom Rally Racing facebook page.

Scott Spears and the Freedom Rally crew are the people that were behind the scenes and helped Luis complete the Dakar.

Great job, Luis!

Please do me a favor, and never do this again.

Staying up late, late, late every night to be sure you made it to the ASS cost me a lot of sleep.
