Ricky Brabec becomes the first American to win Dakar. American Casey Currie was second. Well done, Yanks!

I am (was a) big supporter of Jonah Street but unfortunately he was just at the wrong time.

Great for both of these athletes and condolences to Paulo Concalves’s family. May he Rest In Peace.

This was really cool and I'm glad also to see Honda still hammering away. I remember when a fairly stock Honda 350 won the Baja 1000 and the Triumph & rest of the Euro bike world went

Understanding that form follows function, technology marches on & all that, and some pretty good hardware is out there, I do wish they would produce a bike that also had nice lines, as many of the Spanish bikes had back in the day.
