Thumbs up Want Dakar training & support team?

I ran across this company that trains folks for Dakar and other cross country rallys, they will even provide support trucks and staff. They have a cool training school in either Death Valley or the Mammoth area.

Should we start a list?

Charley, that guy that runs it is a good guy. He also runs Rally Pan Am, the Dakar race team. While he has some sponsors, he also has the Riff Raff. For one hundred dollars, people can join the Riff Raff. After the Dakar Rally, all the Riff Raffers are invited to a picnic, and get to ride the rally bike. This is my second year doing it. The picinic last year was pretty cool. They had about 10 Dakar racers on hand.

Mike, how hard would he laugh if a couple of guys showed up on KLR's for his Dakar training? I wouldn't blame him....
