    Porsche used to run 959s in the early 1980s.

    Many manufacturers explored and developped in this rallye. Honda built twin cylinder engines with driveshaft (like a good old Honda Shadow) with big travel suspensions. Then they sold those bikes to the public. BMW's own RG was developped from the Paris-Dakar too. In Europe, they have a lot of big bore off-road bikes equipped with bigger tanks, side and top cases. Going to work becomes a rallye evry morning.

    Will be. Definitely worth watching!

    Seeing the amazing scenery in the middle stages was just jaw-dropping. I think I'd like to try it someday, assuming I have the fundings and fitness required, of course!

    I started watching it 25 years ago when...

    ...privateers had chances to win a podium. Back then, people could add a larger fuel tank, bring some tools and a few spare tires around their neck (no kidding) and hope to touch ther finish line. One such rider, a French motorcycle journalist whose name I forgot but worked for Moto Journal, did just that. A soft gaz tank across his road going BMW which he modified by raising the suspension (there was no off-road Bimmers at that time), a few spare tires across his chest and here he went. It lasted only a year or two, until the big sponsors and car/bike makers poured their big money. Then civil war hit in Mauritania. They started shooting at contestants, a few died. It has been a long time since I watched that race, maybe the most sensationnal of all times...

    Just like a Canonball Run on hyper steroids.
