Anyone packing their bags and riding up to the start in Jeddah? - Planning a ride section. :thumleft:

Where do you intend to ride from?
Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

Why did the route change to Saudi Arabia?

Money.  :3some:

It was becoming waaaay too expensive to run it over there.

I also think that the ever-worsening economical situation, with ensuing unrest, in South American countries plays a role too.

Laia now on a KTM owned Gas Gas!  :thumleft:





"It begins a new motivating stage for me with lots of opportunities for the future! GasGas has opened a new chapter of its history with KTM Group and even things happened very fast we are in the positive way. The bike looks great and we are ready for Dakar!! New colours, same goals! In January, full throttle!"
