I can just imagine Danny's grin as he was talking to "Uncle Donny" Emler at the end of the last vid. Donny & Danny have been super friends as long as I can remember (long before Donny started Flying Machine Factory). Danny is a really class act, no ego, no arrogance, just pure love of riding & racing with major skills. He's a former 500cc World MX champ & has been on overall winning bike teams in Baja before too.

As well as one of the highest finishing Americans in Dakar!

Nice find Ken.....Laporte has a few miles down there under his belt.....Obviously....Great videos . Wish Chuck Sun had a helmet cam....Would have been cool to catch some of his run. BTW, these new helmet cams are awesome. I dont think I have ever seen this many on board videos from a race. I love it.

what sucks it just makes me miss racing baja that much more.. now if I could only find the time/money to race again. too many other things tugging at my watch and pocket book at the moment..:mad:

now if I could get someone to release the whole 9 to 10 hour helmet cam footage on dvd.. I'd buy it in a heart beat.:D
