WOW, both bike are great, you should stick to the DR!
I'm glad you liked the video, yes refueling on the desert with the wind...was something I didn't think about it!
I had no carnet and no international driving license, only the insurance, the lifecard of the moto and my national driving licence (Italian). In Morocco they were surprise it was handwritten (the life card was made in Sierra Leone) and in Mauritania they just write on my passport, otherwise I had no problems at the borders.
Enjoy your ride!
