"Zerzura Club"

I am pleased to annunce the "rebirth" of the glorious "Zerzura Club", originally founded at the Greek Bar of Wadi Halfa in November 1930; and now refounded at Segrate (Milano), Italy on the 6th November 2004.

The aim of the club is always the same: to find the "Atlantis of the Sands"!

Any person interessed to this initiative, please contact me at:

pyr@fastwebnet.it

We are waiting for new members to the "Elusive Oasis"!!!

Giancarlo Negro, Italy

Two things cross my mind

a) Dont you think this is a little presumptuous?

b) What if we cant read Italian?

Sorry, this is only a temporary problem: in about one month I hope for a complete English traslation about all it is now written in Italian, and also the creation of a new international website devoted to Zerzura and to "lost oases" generally speaking.

6 x 2200 km off road = 1 clutch cable. These Adventures are pretty indestructable. Fantastic trip a long way from any civiliation. The Gilf and the Great Sand Sea are well worth the logistics.

Some mates of mine in Cairo have had real reliability issues... which mechanic are you using? One in Maadi?

Heh Runner,

Have used the one in Maadi, sometimes good, sometimes slightly less than perfect.

A couple of the guys know KTM's inside out and generally we sorted the bikes all together, under their instruction.

Still quite surprised to manage that terrain, including some very rocky bits, with no dramas and not even a puncture.
