Hi Saleh.
It's nice to meet people offering help in other places.
I'm flying to Dubai in some weeks. One year ago the chances to rent a big motorcycle in Dubai were limited to Harleys. Do you know if there are now any other brand available for renting?.
Thank you and best regards from Spain.
Angel.

It is possible to rent off road bikes from Sandstorm. Unfortunately I do not have any information in relation to large road bikes.

No issues regarding shipping the Buggy, we are having the tuk tuk store with us now and just waiting for the owner (Alex) to arrange the shipping and we may use the same company or any other company as he will be shipping it to India as well.

Amsterdam to Melbourne 2014

Hi, I am planning to ride my BMW F800GS from Morocco to Dubai starting February 2014. I just wonder what would be the best route to travel from Eqypt to Jordon, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and UAE.

I believe it is very difficult to get visa for riding motorcycle in Suadi Arabia. Is it easy to get visas for other countires?

Hi Channey

thanks for your enquiry
about traveling from Egypt to Jordan, there is a ferry line between those 2 point and its easy to book and load your bike.
as Saudi is in the middle of GCC you will only have the option of fright the bike from Jordan to UAE then ride to Oman.
you will not be able to enter Qatar because saudi is having a land between UAE & Qatar.

i wish i clear the point, glad to answer any other questions

Regards
Saleh From Dubai

You are very kind Dubai355. I found the 2xwheeler.com page a month ago but after sending them some emails I obtained no answer. I'll try it again. In case they don't answer me, should I phone him?.
