Anybody interested to do a ride to the mountains near Nizwa, Oman ?

As usual, it will be tarmac all the way upto Nizwa and then it will be graded dirt roads in the Jebel Akhdar / Shams area.

Head out early morning 6th and back on either 7th night or 8th noon depending on how it pans out.
Why is it a long weekend? In case it is a holiday here too, would love to ride and come meet you! If not will ride in the next day and catch you on the way out. Either ways, count me in

Thursday is some religious holiday over here so i'm guessing it would be the same over there in Oman....

Nizwa should be a quick ride for you and luckily through the twisty road from muscat unlike for us riding on the boring straight desert highway from Al-Ain.

will keep u posted on the final plans....

cheers

Not riding yet, but October would be a good start :)

The season is almost here...

Has anyone else notice an improvement in the weather this week, or is it simply wishful thinking on my part?
Looking forward to hitting the trail before long.

Inbound for my first gig in the U.A.E. and hope to get situated quickly in order to participate in the upcoming riding season.
I bring a lot of enthusiasm if not a lot of off road experience, hope to meet up work some of the inmates in-country.

I know it's short notice, but I'm going out for a few hours across into Oman. Heading from Al Ain across the border to the Wadi Saa and hanging gardens area to do some exploring. If anyone is interested hit me up.

update

A big Hello to the Folks (other inmates) in the UAE!

A lot of info on this site www.dubaipetrolheads.com

There are about 3 groups of riders who leave from Dragon Mart Petrol Pump, Dubai on Friday mornings around 0500 in the morning.

Yup! the weather is cooler now, went from Dxb - Al Ain/ Jebel Hafeet X 2 - Dxb last friday.

This weekend is a long weekend, the private sector will be 'off' from 11/10/13 to 19/10/13.

Time for some Hatta Twisties and Kalba corners then.

If you intend to enter/ leave Oman/ UAE, be prepared for long ques and valid Oman/UAE insurance copies.

Take care and stay well.

reg,

BB

Hi!

I'm looking to sell my Kawasaki KLX250 and pick up either a KLR650, Versys, or BMW G650GS with a view to some light UAE/Oman camping/touring.

Any like-minded individuals in the Raha Beach area?

Thanks!

Kevin
