Skylar Howes gofundme. They've raised enough for his return flight and half his tire bill so far.

go Mr Howes ...

are you going to put a roadbook holder on your bike and join the Sonora Rally as a competitor?

really enjoyed following the Dakar Rally with fellow BARFers this year ...

if you like following triangles and think sailboats are cool, I'm tapering off my Dakar addiction here:

Vendee Globe

god bless the French ... it's a non-stop circumnavigation bad-a@# sailboat race, held every four years ... the top 9 boats are within about 250 nautical miles, and the top three within 40 nm, after having raced 24,000 nm ... it's a 3500 nm sprint to the finish!

anyway, know we have a couple sailors here ... it's fun to click on just to compare the Vendee Globe triangles to the cool Dakar moto triangles we were treated to this year, even if you're mostly a motorcycle person.

I’m not going to enter a rally. I’m too slow and don’t bounce well anymore, but I would sign up to volunteer at the SoNora Rally. I signed up on the website but when you get to the volunteer part it doesn’t seem to go anywhere so maybe they aren’t taking anymore. Plus mrs1962 might not be too thrilled with the idea of me going to Mexico for a few weeks this year. But I’ve put the word out to my slacker friends about doing this. I’d be happy to man a table or check point or help with food or dishes or whatever.

I just watched the last NBC broadcast. I will keep them until next year and watch again for a warm up like I did this year.

I want to see Dakar The Movie.

Fun times. Thanks for all the videos, pictures, stories and comments. It’s more fun to check in here, with folks I’ve seen & ridden with, that strangers on adv rider.

OK, probably the last of my video links for Dakar, this year.

Start off with a sad note...
#111 French Rider Pierre Cherpin has passed away from injuries caused by his fall during the 7th stage from Ha’il to Sakaka on January 10th
RIP Mr. Cherpin.

Watched the entire podium ceromony while working. Pretty cool seeing so many adventurous people living it. It was long... damn.

Got a new woman for Woodschick to follow??
But Sara Garcia from Spain was 12th in Malle Moto (44th overall). Impressive!


Really enjoyed it this year. More than ever. Probably a lockdown thing, but I expect the fan passion for this will remain.
