Cyril Despres' Dakar check list

Hello Gents,



I managed to get hold of Cyril Despres' list of things he packs for the Dakar rally. I think It makes some interesting reading, or at least to a touring nut like me.

http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/Ne...ar-check-list/

I also had a nose around the KTM support van for the rally, would you like me to post the pictures and things from that? Their van has a built in welder! It makes my garage look a bit rubbish to say the least.

Sam

At least the cassoulet is keeping you warm.

Cyril's list is the very definition of ATGATT. I did'nt see Orange Le Creuset casserole dish. No mention of a kitchen sink.
Perhaps dehydrated Cassoulet or Andorran equivalent is all he needs.

What's ATGATT? Is it contagious?
