I did arrange it before but then they changed their minds (as per the Libya post). Am so glad I got in though - great place.

I used the stock Metzeler Enduro's for tarmac, TKC 80's for dirt and then bought some other's later in the trip. Will give my opinion on them all at the end

The off-road bit - naughty, naughty

The music was perfect for the terrain.

I'm jealous! I would love to see Libya.
5f? Is that like riding down a 90 degree cliff face into a lake of fire? I thought 4f was bad. Abdelhub

The Libyan/Roman arch is just amazing, total jaw dropper. The cock n balls signpost is pretty funny too

AWESOME RR! If your tour guide is as good a guide as he is a driver/videographer, then you REALLY lucked out with that dude. Though I doubt I will ever be able to take advantage of his services, you might hold on to his info for other daring ADV'ers such as yourself ..... just in case!

Can't wait for the next installment!

Livin' your dream man!
