Watching this clip, replete with melodramatic Ibanez-woodla-ballad guitar, one might get the impression that it's amateur hour out at the Imperial Dunes in eastern SoCal. But it's not. These riders are some of the best in the world, and they were out in the African desert a year ago during stage eight of the Dakar Rally. If this doesn't illustrate how tough the conditions can be out there, nothing will. And again, we apologize for the six-string wankery. We had no control over that aspect of the clip.
