Welcome aboard

I'm sure that Martin and Donna at Torque will answer these questions, but here are my thoughts, based on this year's Hellas and Serres rallies on a KTM 520:

There's no need for a cush drive, almost all of the riding is off road. Of course, if you already have one, you could use it, but no need to get one specially for this event

I did this year's Hellas on enduro tyres - Michelin rather than Metzler - and they wore out very quickly (3 tyres in 4.5 days) I changed to Maxxis IT's for the Serres and they were perfect. Desert's will be too hard wearing and lethal if we have rain or snow
