    Hello There,

    In case you have a US/UK/EU 2 wheeler license and a valid UAE visa, you could get a 2 wheeler license rightaway! It should be a swap, unless there's been a major upheaval in the system.

    Which Emirate are you based in aka Dubai/ Abu Dhabi Sharjah etc..

    I am looking forward to seeing you all at our BMW Motorrad stand at the Exhibition.

    For Friday we have organized a ride from AGMC Showroom to the Gulf Bike Expo in Media city. We will be meeting at 2pm to be leaving by 2:15pm sharp in front of the AGMC Motorrad Showroom. Hoping to see you all at our ride.

    Hey mates,

    I will do a week of vacation in Ajman in March next year.
    I was planning to do a one day desert/mountain trip from Dubai to Fujarah in that week. I got into contact with Emirates Bike Tours through Facebook after watching some of their really cool videos on Youtube.
    For booking they forwarded me to Suzi at GasGas Adventure Tours.
    Now I have received a PDF confirmation for my booking and they are asking me for some advance payments which is making me a bit paranoid.
    There's some topics which are not completely clear to me yet as for example the exact terms of insurance, what exactly is included in the package I am booking and so on. I also could not find a single reference of anybody ever having written about a tour with them through Google.
    As I have nothing to go on than a youtube video, a FB contact and some E-Mails I am trying to get more information before I pay anything.

    Do any of you guys from the UAE area know GasGas Adventure Tours or a company called moto1 which is located in Al Warsan 3, near the Orchid Garden Center close to Dubai?

    Have any of you ever done a tour with them?

    Thanks for your replies,

    Alaric11

    Meanwhile I found out that those are actually the same people as Emirates Bike Tours. Apparently they recently changed the name. That's why I don't find anything on them.
    Any of you who have done anything with Emirates Bike Tours?
