This could be a double post as someone has reported it in workshops around the world but here is more specific information.
Before leaving the UK I contacted the "Cairo Community" and made contact with Jonathan Giesen. While heading through Syria our engine started developing engine knock so we contacted Jonathan but he was in New York and gave us a telphone number of his friend Mohammed to phone when we got to Cairo. Arriving at Salma Camp (which is a dump) we contacted Mohammed who collected us and escorted us to Mohammed Anwar's workshop.
All bikers in Cairo, and Egypt, regard Anwar as the best in the business and the passionate way in which he worked on our bikes I would believe it. Anwar works from Noon till midnight and there are bikers and mates in and out of the workshop every evening for the regular social gathering.
So even if you don't need any work done then just pop by and say hello.
The workshop is in an alley off Le Corniche (north bound) on the right just after Mercedes Benz. (GPS: N30deg01,289 E31deg13,825). Arriving from Suez, take the ring road south. Immediately before the Nile take the junction north onto the El-Corniche. Follow this for a while and over a steel bridge. At the other end of the bridge you will see a mercedes benz dealer and a little further a VW dealer on the right. Just after this and immediately before the road sign to the Citadel there is a small alleyway to the right. Anwar's workshop is just down this alleyway. Opens from 12:00pm
Anwar does a excellent job and really knows bikes in and out and has very very reasonable rates.
All the above have mobile numbers. Please contact the Cairo Community for more detail.
If you are on a bike in Egypt the only guy you can depend on to get you spare parts , tyres or to service you bike is MOHAMED ANWAR ,he is the man , and money is the last thing he will think about

hi there. i had my bike serviced there on the way down as well. great great great guys. and he really knows alot bikes. if i had one complaint it would be that hes too quick. so slow him down. take a day or two more to fix the bike. cos pieces go missing and stuff needs to be put back with care. he did great jobs on our bikes but we pushed him for time and that was a mistake. be sure to go on an out ride with his many biker friends down to the red sea.
aaah what wonderful memories.
