Wonder where that could be. Understandably, you and Ned are in a race of your own. I think Ned's ahead by a little. Is Tuesday still looking good?

Ive dreamed many years with the Dakar. Maybe since ot started many years ago. Never have the money or even the skills to try. I like to see people like those on this video that take the chance. Everytime i ride at Morocco tracking some of the Dakar Stages i admire even more these privateers. 5 days adv riding each year and only 250km by day, on different type of terrains and at non racing pace makes me doubt if i were able to resist 17 days at race pace, 600km a day.

To do it by car is kind of crazy, to do it on a motorcycle is insane, but cannot find any adjective to qualify what should be to do it on sidecar bike.......

To my knwoledge no sidecar has ever made it to Dakar.................

I love this post, i would like to own a rally style bike too.

The TV show was never made. There is nothing except this promo clip.

The point of posting the video was because it shows the bikes being built and tested before they went to Dakar.

That was great. Thanks for adding that vid - helps to figure out a little more about the bike too!

That was a wonderful promotional vid.

Speed should have picked it up but what do we get instead? NASCRAP drivers playing golf/playing poker/whatever.

Shame on Speed

Man, Ron Bailey is such a pompous douchebag.

The most technically superior machine in Dakar, huh? OK....
