Off-road riding North Africa/Mongolia
I'm an eperienced trail-rider looking for somebody (or 2) to join me on an off-road adventure. I haven't decided on a destination but expect to leave in 2007 as the seasons dictate. I have kitted up a KTM400EXC (23l tank, racks, GPS etc) that I'm shaking down at the moment.
Wherever we go it will be as much off-road as possible, unsupported with as much camping as possible. Kit will be lightweight (20kg max) + water and allow independence if necessary.
I'm a kiwi with heaps of practical mechanical and electrical skills and camping/ off-road experience. I will be leaving from NZ, flying the bike to the kick-off place, wherever that is.
I've looked at the Kudu expeditions, which appeal, but don't want to spend NZ$45k to ride an F650.
I expect to spend 3 - 4 months riding with no fixed itinerary.
