  • Turns out, answering that call, returning that e-mail resulted in being one of the sponsors who supported the only U.S. rider who finished the 2012 Dakar, the biggest motorsports event in the world.

  • Turns out, Ned's preparation and following thread (this one) is now the 5th most popular thread on the racing forum of ADVrider.com ever, one of the 100 biggest boards in the world, and the internet's premier motorcycle forum (The other 4 being the 2012, 2011, 2010 Dakar threads and the 2011 MotoGP thread).

  • Turns out, it has become a sport to drool over Ned's daily official webventure photos in high resolution, with your sponsor stickers highly visible. These photos has been posted and reposted all over ADVrider, Facebook, Twitter and e-mail and now grace the desktops of hundreds of people's home and work PCs ("Cool pic, who's that? What, your friend?")

I have no idea how much you paid, dear sponsors. But I'll bet you got your money's worth.


Thanks for the support.


Here's the link to Ned's sponsor page, with links and details for all companies.
Good and very appropriate post, Flood.

Congratulations on a smart and successful ride, Neduro. As far as I'm concerned, you won the Dakar.

Ned, congratulations! This has been absolutely fantastic.

It was an honor to be able to help support your effort, even in a small way. Thanks for taking us along with you and making this an extremely personal Dakar experience. You should be proud.

Well said.
I own three pair of Sidi boots, way too much Touratech bling is slowly wearing out on my aging Adventure. And I bought maps from Butler to further frustrate my dreams of off-tarmac travel.
And now, I even dream about an orange bike.

Thanks for all the reporting and posts that kept us cube-dwellers in it.
Now, I need to go ride the push bike and make room for a glass of layer cake, (one of the local grocers sells it. )



Way to go Ned!

Fantastic from start to finish

Congratulations Ned.

It's not often that someone you actually know excels on the WORLD stage but you've done it.

Savor the moment.

Flood, thanks for the reminder on the sponsors.

When you get right down to it, there are a lot of good gear-makers out there, but only a few of them helped send Neduro to Dakar.

I'm actually looking for a DS now, and when I start farkling these companies will be at the top of the list (and I will certainly tell them why).

Shameless sponsor bump:

+10

Now go buy something (as many of us have) from the sponsors.
