Get your face on my rallybike!

$6,036 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 65 people in 46 months

Be part of my Race to Dakar in January 2015!!

Help me fulfill a life long dream of racing a motorcycle through the Sahara from Spain to Dakar in Senegal.

By sponsoring me you will get your face planted on my Rally Bike - litterally!!

For $100 USD I will make a sticker with your face on and stick it on the official Rally Bike, so you can be part of the adventure as well.

The Rally Bike is a KTM 690 Enduro R to be exact.

You will also get your name on the official Rally Team Motolombia T-Shirt and I'll sent a T-Shirt to your home address with a big THANKS YOU!

If the whole face sticker-thingy is too much, you can still help me with $50 USD and receive the official Rally Team Motolombia T-Shirt in the mail with your name on it.

See what the fuzz is all about here:

And Thank You so much for help making my dream come true!

Mike, Would you use a photo you have from when we were on tour with you this year ? You could crop and do one sticker with Matthew and Michael. I thought this would be a fun Christmas present. Margaret

This'll be the closest I (and my Honda AT) ever get to the old -Paris-Dakar rally. I'll be following in the shadows!! Enjoy, and be careful. It's treacherous -- I have a friend who did the original, and he had some tough stories (and a broken wrist).
