I wish them luck. They are, of course completely insane.



Can you imagine being the "monkey" for the entire race?

How willthey clean up all the oil spilled on the course and pick up all the parts that fall off? Without fringed arm chaps, it really isn't much of a race anyway.

There are so many jealous people out there it cracks me up. Thanks to those of you who understand this event, and appreciate the challenge and what it takes to get there. The rest of you need to study up on the V-Rod. It’s not your grandpa’s motorcycle! The Suzuki I had in this bike before left us stranded in the desert, leaking oil like a gusher. Read about that on the bottom story on our Hog Wild News page:

http://www.hogwildracing.com/blog/

Or see for yourself here:

http://www.hogwildracing.com/misc/di...en_shifter.jpg

We’re going with the motor that is holding up the best, independent of which brand it is. This year that’s the V-Rod.



Some of you also seem to forget that more that 50% of ALL vehicles fail to finish this race. That’s the goal of the organizers! The DNF’s include MANY of the top pros on high-dollar factory teams. We may or may not finish, but at least we will be out there giving it our best, and having a BLAST doing it! Those of you knocking our effort, or anyone’s Dakar effort, are just losers who need to put winners down in order to feel better about your own non-achievements. Get off the couch and do something challenging with your life!

Just for the record, I admire the "effort", but I question the brains. (Does that still make me a "Loser"?)

One of the finer point, if it wasn't for the subscription money of all the "losers" we wouldn't know you existed.
