    Hello All,

    This is my first post. I'm from the UK and am a keen motorcycle rider, I currently own a 2016 Street triple R and I enjoy touring on it to Scotland, wales etc.

    But soon I'm moving with work to Oman (Nizwa) and wondered what type of riding I will be expecting out there. I also ride Enduro bikes in the UK so enjoy Off-road too.

    I have tried to find some information online about Oman but seems rather limited, additionally I cant find much information regarding motorcycle sales or access to motorcycles. I was wondering if I could ship my Street triple out and run it out there on UK plates.

    Speak Soon regards Churchy

    I lived in muscat about 10 yrs ago. at the time we had a harley davidson/Kawasaki dealership in town. there were minimal bikes out on the road- mostly harleys with an occasional sport bike. the roads were pristine condition for riding. but i would opt for an adventure or dual sport bike and then you can go anywhere. there is a lot of wadi bashing and beach riding to be done.
