If you want to hit the off road trail and weekend off road trip you can get in contact with a club called Dirty Rider Oman. Sur is a great place to start on a bike, so much around there to ride and explore. Where as we in Muscat have to drive there first and then explore on bike. (makes it part of fun though)
These roads are retarded with mobile phone drivers and people who do not obey traffic signs and rules. Get something big and brute, dot think economy wise when buying a car here!! That's beside the point now...
Licence is a quick eye test and 20 Rial, you are legally allowed to drive 6months with your overseas license.
Off road bikes are the most practical I think in the country because there is so much to explore where cars cant go!
