    Hi, I am planning to ride on Masirah, not full circle just 60-70 km on the west side of the island. I got a message that there are only few cars but they drive 130-140 km/h. What is your experience? Is road wide enough, pretty straight so those drivers can see you from the far distance and if not slowing down at least overtaking you in a proper way. Thank you.

      Hi Ruki. We didn’t notice the drivers going any faster than anywhere else in Oman but yes, the roads are wide and straight and drivers should be able to see you from a long way off. The roads are very quiet. Good luck and let me know how you get on!

        Hi Tim,
        already booked a hotel but just found an article how guys suffered for a National Day last year. I won’t go now, maybe later during the year. Thank you.
        Catamarans should be ready sometime Q1 2014, maybe they make some order :-)
