Getting ready for our first daily service stop.
A six wheel drive MAN truck. In the next 16 days I would spend 120hrs and travel 6700km in between working on bikes.
Jean-Claude & Ludovic were a great help to the team. Unfortunately they would not accompany us into Africa.
Just some of the people who were out to view the Dakar circus as we made our way down to Portamao in Southern Portugal.
Lining up to catch a ferry. Service crews crossed the Strait of Gibralta from Algeciras in Spain to Tanger in Africa.
Competitors crossed from Malaga in Spain to Nador in Africa.
The ferry's were huge. Four storeys high and carried too many trucks to count.
