2017 DAKAR Thread

Thought it was about time to start the 2017 Dakar thread on DBW. Heaps of wild and long threads on ADVrider but we can have our own small conversation and appreciation of the rider's efforts here.

Go Toby of course.

I wonder if anyone is game to do it on a 2T again?
That effort by the 125 rider last year was just spectacular.
He won the event IMO...

All purchased for $5,999.00 each + gst.
