Perfect - not too many miles at all.

 

I'd salivate in envy if I didn't already have my big red pig since 2002.

 

Ah, what the hell! - I'm gonna salivate in envy anyways.  :thumbsup:

 

Cheers Bud  - Enjoy!

BigThumpis u can push most dents out of metal gas tank by using a wooden dowel rod like a length of broomstick to push against the back side of the dent inside of the fuel tank. Do it gradually and don't try to knock out the dent with one blow. Try tapping around the outer edge of the dent while working inwards toward the center. If its got a large crease in the dent you may not want attempt this fix it might cause the paint to chip and flake along the crease

No, when you get speed you are on top of the sand you are cruising, like water skiing.

 

Coming up to a broken dune (top edge is sharp) like we are on takes practice. Need to ride hard, pull in the clutch at the right time to just drop the front wheel over the edge, power through and then down the face. Approaching the edge too fast means you go over and the end result is ugly!

 

You do hit unexpected soft spots, then you get off of the bike, walk it through until back on "hard" ground, and then off again.

 

I have hit really nasty patches, once it took 10 hours to do 10 km in Egypt...it was brutal.

 

Check ot moto pictures at www.egge.us

What other dangers are out there? Besides heat etc, ramping a dune, what else can be out there? Looks so much fun! I want to go!!

Breaking down can be very, very bad. Might be 200 km froom nearest person, chances of anyone coming upon you are zero in this particular area. Getting hurt is a risk.

 

This was taken near  24°59'27.95"N    12°37'39.84"E    Check it out in Google Earth, it will blow you away!

 

But....this is some of the most remarkable desert in the world. Lots of photos under the motorcycle tab at www.egge.us, check out Libya, Oman and Egypt

About 10 posts back was my XR650 in Libya, lost that one to Ghadafi (world is a better place without him) when I was evacuated in 2011. My new XR650 and wife's CRF450 is below, camping in grasslands of Senegal where we now live and work.

I can go 150 miles on 4 gallons. For me the main reason for the IMS is it's the only one that looks good lol the Clark and acerbis are both ugly to me and I hear bad things about the Clark's changing color and the acerbis being super hard to install

Why IMS ? They don't seem to make one any bigger than 4 gal for that bike . I was hoping for five ..
