Other than that it is huge fun. I have a WR250F and on the dumps would like a 450 - extra power for the climbs.

The idea of panty-hose sounds good - along the lines of the filter skins that u can buy.
As for more grease or lube - I just lube / grease as per normal. I have noticed that on the axles you do get a bit of grit in there although it was minimal. Sea sand/sea water is probably a bit more vicious. Ceratinly the sea water would mean that u must at least rinse the bike every day.

I break out the Bel-Ray 'blue syrup' air cleaner oil for dune trips. It's a pain to apply, but catches everything.
Also, when you mount your flag, put in on the rear axle. It won't hit you as much and will be less likely to break off. If you ride at Silver Lake in Michigan, you have to pass the 8ft high test, so get a long flag if you ride there.
