Lagos - Europe - Lagos
Am planning a trip from Lagos, Nigeria to Europe and back.
My trip will take me through the following countries; Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania/Senegal, Western Sahara, Morocco, Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Ferry to Morocco Or Ride back to Spain and make return trip passing through the north of Ghana and then back to Lagos.
I have a choice of 2 bikes....my VFR1200FDA or the BMW R1200GS. Right now the argument weighs strongly for the GS but anything can happen
I have ridden to Senegal before and am quite familiar with the route...however, there is some degree of "uncertainty" concerning Mali as there was a coup there a couple of months back.....we will see.
I welcome suggestions on exact routing in Europe and suggested stops. Also if anyone is anywhere along my route, it would be a great time to meet and perhaps ride part of the route together?
My departure date if 14th of July and I expect to be in Morocco around the 22nd. I plan my whole trip to take me 4 to 6 weeks.
Any suggestions/advice is most welcome.
Looking forward to your inputs as we develop my route
