In the Sahara (Tassili)
Hmm, I know where the next major TT ride should be

More so when the temperature outside is 15 deg F with high winds and snow flurries. .
Where is this place ?
Or is there anything close to it in America ?
How to get there ?
How many $$ for this type of trip ?
I have to ride there before I meet my creator , that's for sure

Hey Tiout! I've been showing your pics to all my friends. What a dreamland!!!
The only thing that is bad on those pics is the rear "save the planet" tire...
Is that a Michelin Enduro Comp? I'm not surprised since you stated somewhere that your trip was planned from Paris...
You will probably agree with me if I tell you that I think an 8 paddle tire would have been great. Or did you need to ride a bit of rocky trails to get there?

The CT70 is my latest project... It's a 1970 CT70KO. It's the bike that I learned on.. Months ago it was a pile of rust.. Since then I've done a lot of work to it, the frame,swingarm,chain guide and forks were sandblasted and powdercoated to the original color, candy ruby red, I'm very happy with the color since it matches the OEM headlight seen here. I repainted the wheels and put some Pirellis on. The motor is a high quality knock off motor from China, it came with a 24mm Keihin Carb,CDI ignition and all the fixins.. Oh and it's a 125cc.... The clutch is a hydro unit, the throttle is the billet Fast50s with a BBR throttle cable to reach the goofy fold down bars.

The tire was not adapted...you were right. It was an FIM approved tire. The place is in an area called Tassili in the Algerian Sahara. There are more pictures at www.YamahaTassiliAdventure.com. Trip costs $950 + airfare. Bikes are provided locally (WRs, TTRs, Warriors, Raptors)
here is another picture:
