Sahara Day, April 6, Peoria, AZ

A Day in the Sahara
Al Jesse and the crew at Jesse Luggage Systems would like to introduce you to Chris Scott, famed traveler of the Saharan desert. Chris has traveled the Sahara for the past 25 years, in all sorts of vehicles, including of course, a motorcycle. Chris has written of his extensive experiences in the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook. http://adventure-motorcyclingh.com/





Al met Chris on his own trip through the Sahara desert on the border between Mali and Senegal, and the two have remained in contact ever since.
On April 6, 2013, Jesse Luggage will host a presentation by Chris Scott, in which he will describe some of his travels, as well as discuss how to set up and outfit your motorcycle for adventure travel. This is a great opportunity for those who are looking to get ready for that big trip, and for those who are dreaming about it!
Attendance will be limited, and the exact location in Peoria, AZ (not at Jesse Luggage), will be disclosed to those who sign up. We will plan the festivities to begin around 3pm and last until dark. We will ask for a small donation to help cover the cost of Chris’ expenses and for the refreshments that will be served. Sign up at neil@jesseluggage.com

The Sahara is where the Paris/Dakar rally was held, before moving to South America, which is where it is now.

Sure looks to be. Maybe part of his presentation will be on remote sidestand repair.
It would suck to have to zip tie it. Doesn't look like there's a lot of places to lean a moto in the Sahara.
