    Nadim, did u try sebsports ? he's a fellow inmate on Dubai4x4. My friend got his TKC80 in 140/70-18 for his 990Adv a week ago from them.... i think it was old stock so he got a good deal too.

    OK, here's the route guys. Its all wadi/off-road and the only tarmac section would be the road leading to Kalba OR Fujairah. The dotted line is the track.

    Pirelli Dubai much more reasonable (350-375 for a rear tire):

    AL Hawai Tyre Company al Qouz branch.
    TEL : +971 4 3390033
    FAX : +971 4 3395505

    Going for the XC Mid-hard for dual sport...it is deep for sand too when deflated...they have the Pro but I feel it won't last as much on the tarmac in the heat...once a year for 350AED won't hurt the bank...975 would!

    Sounds to me like a vendors and supplies thread for this part of the world might be a good idea. Who's in?

    I just moved to Abu Dhabi and am looking for a group to join. I need inspiration to get out with peeps that have been there & done that or are looking to go there and do that...

    I have an F800R.

    Saw a KTM Adventure 990-R rider yesterday near the al-Raha area - exit to Bandar, approx 5:30-6:00PM.

    Bike had Neduro's Adv tank and GPR low (rally) exhaust. Are you an inmate ?

    cheers

    Hello folks,
    I've been working off and on in Dubai for the past couple years. I'm back in Dubai for a few more weeks. I'm planning on flying to Qatar for the MotoGP round in a few weeks. Anyone else going?
