    Sorry guys, I've been out of the thread for a while... :shog

    The trip is still in my plans even if a lot of things went down when the bike went missing :cry

    For the moment I'm planning my middle-east trip (Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordania, Syria, Turkey, East countries, ...). Then I'll get more involved in that one :thumb

    I'm not afraid of crossing Africa on a KTM 990 Adv, which bike could be better for that trip ? :deal

    Aurel, you've had the sympathies, we all backed you with that horrible thing that happened, and now we're moving on like you.

    So stop whining and show us HOT French wimmins already :deal


    or else we will have to let mr kk 1200gsadv out on you undefended.

    Yeah Aurel, it doesnt look like you ride much. Looks like you get stuck much!

    Maybe a CD200 is the right bike for you

    All joking aside, smaller would be better in my opinion. If you go on a big KTM, I doubt you will ever get beyond second or third gear after Libya or maybe Egypt.
