Cool2 Ride like the wind

I watched Eurosport's Road Book last night. You're in for a treat. :~) Have fun out there. Amazing scenery. They were saying to keep to the route in the dunes at the end. They have made several waypoints to get you through. Stick to the road book and you'll be fine.

I have only followed the Dakar Rally for a couple of years due to spotty coverage in the US. Thanks to Ned, ADV, and other participants posting, I have a whole new understanding of the passion required to participate in this event.

I am so hooked..

Ned so happy to see your bike arrived. Try to get some rest before the race and enjoy living your dream!

Now back to reading road map........

Seems like I heard something about 6:30 Local for scrutineering. A little breathing room.

That may have been BC61s time though.

The Dakar never fails to deliver drama...

Way to remain cool Ned. Hope scrutineering goes with few hitches so you can get to the "fun" part.

Like others here, the Eurosport iPhone app videos were blocked for me (they won't play in the US). But the Road Book video (the entire half-hour) is available at http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xna...d-book-hd_auto, for those who may be interested . . .

This is fine news! I predict that we shall not need to break out the slow clap henceforth.
