Hello, I am a local and I will give you my personal opinion (will try to be objective). It depends on what you are going to do and where you are going to ride. But I would say if you are planning on road trips from and to; Alexandria, Cairo, Hurghada, Gouna, sharm el sheikh and Dahab, you will be fine as long as you are travelling in a group. But you need to understand that travelling in big traffic congested cities on a bike is dangerous if you are not used to it, traffic laws are not like Europe and USA. If you are planning a offroad trip, I wouldn't go out to the desert without a tour guide/travel agent who is in the offroad business and knows how to deal with bedouins in the desert (basically had an agreement with them to pay them money in exchange of letting him travel through the desert).

Hope that helps.
