The Motorcycle Matinee is going to be a little bit different this week. As one of my favorite sporting events of the year comes to a close, I’d like to dedicate this Sunday to the Dakar. The respect that I have for the organizers and competitors in this epic event cannot be measured. I love everything about the event, but for me, the bikes take center stage, of course. Since I learned of the Dakar, I’ve always kept an eye on it, but it can be a difficult event to follow.
You’re talking hundreds of machines, covering thousands of kilometers, in some of the most remote areas of the world. So, coverage can be a bear.

The Dakar is more accessable than ever, which is great for wannabe spectators like you and me.
