I would suggest at least a 450. There isn't much single track riding here and the big dunes suck up an aweful lot of power. You might not fancy sand at the moment but wait until you've seen it. It's pretty impressive, as are the vast expanse of wadi's to expolore
Interesting. I really appreciate all the feed back. I have heard that the number one cause of death is traffic accidents, and this includes pedestrians. I guess this confirms it. On the rural roads high speeds are the norm?
