I used to ride one of these in the dunes here in the UAE, Amy, having removed those big chunky lights that the 'Baja' came with. I could ride it up the highway to get to the best dunes then go straight off across the sand. It really is a versatile bike: reliable, tough, fun and very competent.

Good luck selling it for a fair price. Yours looks like a great traveling bike.
