desert weapons

err well
the winter desert riding season is fast approaching and im off tomorrow to pick up a couple of desert weapons
they need to be solid with good sub frames to hump a load, massive fuel range, capable in the tough stuff, mechanicly simple because im not too bright and there is no recovery from where we are going and not too fussy on crappy outback fuel
but i still dont know what to get
