This bike looks like it has been sitting for 10 - 15 years, or else came by a camel through a sand storm!

Any of you ever been to the Middle East?

The sand storms in Iraq were crazy! Literally walls of sand would move in...you would hit that and visibility could be less than 30-50ft and take driving speeds down to about 10mph. If you left your AC on (it got to 120+ In Iraq and Kuwait is about 150+ with tons of humidity) then the AC would suck all the dust through and cover your entire room in about 1/4 of sand.

The orange picture is what a sunny day sandstorm can look like. Usually they are pretty dark and the sun is blocked out...but some turned orange due to the sun shining through the dust/sand. Note: Do not try to take a video in a sandstorm...it kills your camera and it gets stuck in the open position due to sand in the gears...whoops!

The sand storms there literally coat everything.

I can only image the Middle East air filter change intervals on the Wings!
