There is a tour company in the south that uses KTM's, they are based on the road north from Tatahouine to Ksar Hadada (where scenes from new Star Wars movies were filmed) and they presumably have a repair shop.

For what its worth we really struggled finding parts for larger bikes in Tunisia, there are lots of bikes but mostly smaller mopeds.

The Star Wars set is worth a look to if you are down that way.

Hope that helps

Matt

Thought I'd post the gps data anyway in case your internet access is limited!

The gpx file has track that follows the road where the tour company is based, can't remember exactly where it was on the road, maybe a third of the way up from Tatahouine and it will be on your left if you are riding north. Has a big KTM sign so should be easy to spot in the middle of a dessert

And in case you don't have gps i''ve put it on a google map here

Safe riding

Matt
