Red face Oman or Yemen - parts needed

Hi,

I'm in Yemen and my chain and sprockets are wearing a lot quicker than I thought. Can't even get a chain around here.

Anybody flying to Yemen or Oman in the next week or so and could bring the bits with him/her?

Thanks,
Peter.

I can't get the tyres - I've got too much to carry but if you give me a quick reply on the exact sprockets & chain I can go personally to B & C Express on Thursday.

You could even e-mail them in advance to sort out what you need for your bike. I should be able to meet up with you in Oman the weekend after next or whenever you cross back from Yemen.

Thumbs up You on the way to Oman Stephan?

Hey Stephan,

I see in your post that you are on your way to Oman? I went to the kart track and got the paperwork for the carnet for Oman, just have to get it all sorted now. If you have time when you are here give us a call 968 9522 7361 maybe we can catch up for a ?

Ok mate, thanks for the info.

Cheers
Ivan

Thumbs up

Thanks Stephan, I've just sorted it out. Found a DID chain here in Mukallah and just ordered the kit, should be there in a couple of weeks, i.e. well before me.

Dingo: no carnet needed for Oman, but you do need it for Yemen. See my latest border crossing entry for Oman/Yemen. Awesome ride through the mountains on brand new highways till Sayhut, even after that the roads are great. Sorry, off-topic rant...

Glad you found a chain, Peder.

I'm looking forward to riding up to Sohar in the coming weeks, Ivan. See you then.

Enjoy the weather both of you. It's 0 degrees in London right now.
