from marocco to Senegal

Sorry guys, i have posted already this thread in another section of the forum. I hope this may fit.
Hi everybody,
I'd like to submit to you a tentative plan for a motorcycle travel through Marocco to Senegal (two Harley Davidsons... ok, do not laugh, guys, it's the third time we go in Africa...).
29 - Nador (maroc) - Errachidia
30 - Errachidia - Ouarzazate
31 - Ouarzazate - Agadir
1 - Agadir - Ifni
2 - Ifni - Laayoune
3 - Laayoune - Dakla
4 - Dakla - Nouadibu
5 - Nouadibou - Nouackchott
6 - Nouach - Saint Luis
7 - S louis - Dakar
8 Dakar
9 Dakar (to be used to pack the bike and to make shipping docs)
I would book the flight back from Dakar to Europe the night betwee the 9 and the 10.
My fear is to "go long" and to lose the flight or to be really tight not having a day to be spent in dakar/Senegal
Lemmi nou your comments

It sounds like your objective is just to say you've been to Dakar--aren't you interested in seeing anything along the way?

Yes, you can cover those sorts of miles in a day but there's no slack in your plans for any eventualities. What time of the year are you thinking of?

"For sheer delight there is nothing like altitude; it gives one the thrill of adventure
and enlarges the world in which you live,"
Irving Mather (1892-1966)
