Pre-Event/lead up Dakar 2014 thread (moto & quad)!!!!

Hi everybody,

I did not believe some day I will do this:

I just received the letter from ASO, I will be part of the next Dakar in Jan 2014 !!!!



Here the letter !! Sorry it is in french, but it roughly says "go for it !"

Now I have to find all the budget. One of my sponsors had to leave my project. His company is not going well this year, sorry...

So if you want to help me and if you need a very nice 690 RR fairing, please go here : http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=922459

Congratulations! I will see you somewhere between Tucuman and Salta, Argentina. Then our 'Around the Block Moto Adventures' group will up through the salt flats of Bolivia and into Chile until you depart south from Iquique!

If you have anyone who wants to follow the Dakar on motos, have them give me a call Gian.

Cheers!

Toby
