What is FIM Africa?
The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) is an international organisation acting in all matters connected with motorcycling activities and, as such, is active in domains as varied as sport, the environment, mobility, road safety, legal affairs, and the protective and defence of the rights and interests of motorcycle users. As far as motorcycle sports are concerned, the FIM is the supreme and sole international authority empowered to control international motorcycling events organised under its jurisdiction throughout the world and as such acts as the supreme court for the settlement of disputes which may arise from the organisation of such activities, save those cases that may be submitted to the Court for Arbitration for Sports in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Continental Unions (CONU's) (such as FIM AFRICA) are bodies of the FIM. CONU's are recognised geographic subdivisions of, and are accountable, to the FIM. There are six recognised CONUs, each named according to the continent in which it is located: FIM Asia, FIM AFRICA, FIM Europe, FIM Oceania, FIM North America and FIM Latin America.
Every Federation (FMN) in the geographic area of a CONU, is by virtue of its membership of the FIM, automatically a member of that CONU.

"De Einder Voorbij" is the site of Margriet and Jan. They are preparing an overland trip by 4WD from the Netherlands to South Africa (and hopefully many other trips). The site is in Dutch with summary in English.
A photgraphic expedition accross the Sahara. With all the politicval instability currently happening, get in touch with the explorer and you may ask any information about current situation on the ground.
Through this blog David 'Irish' Anderson and Beth Anderson intend to document their upcoming adventure from Cork, Ireland to Cape Town, South Africa. The trip will begin in May 2013 after shipping our bikes from the USA. We plan to spend up to two years on the road with the blog focusing on the people and places we encounter along the way.
Are you a Motorcycle Traveller?
Does the smell of spices wafting through the air make you think of Zanzibar, a cacophony of honking horns is Cairo, or a swirl of brilliantly patterned clothing Guatemala? Then this is the site for you!
