Very little happening this week, Today 7th went to the open evening at 2xwheeler (www.2xwheeler.com) an enjoyable evening meeting Herbert the owner and founder of Touratech with his wife Ramona. Photos are on Facebook 2xwheeler adventures.  Also while I was there I meet Wissam Al-Jayyoussi who is doing a charity ride form Dubai to Singapore through 22 countries. (www.goodwilljournney.org) to raise money for a Children’s oncology
department at Al Hussain Hospital at Beit Jala, Palestine.
Today 10th joined a 2 day ride of the 7 Emirates of the UAE with an overnight camp at Dibba beach. This ride was organised by Motorrad Abu Dhabi (MAD). It was a pleasure to ride with
you guys many thanks I had an enjoyable trip, it was good to just follow without having to think about where I was going or worrying about the route, fuel, food etc. As I will be doing in the weeks to come.

Hi,
I wish you the best of luck.
I live in Muscat Oman with a R1150GSA (and a wife!) and have often looked at the maps for a ride home to Aberdeen. I know people who have taken cars back to Holland via Syria (LHD so ok for Europe) but no-one on a bike. I did meet a rider on a Honda VFR from Oxford who had come down the Red Sea and through Yemen to Oman, but that is risky.
I do some off-rading here in the winter but all very easy stuff - my daughter calls them "roads to no-where".

Keep up a good blog for us wishful travellers.

Peter
