Senegal border - live update - good news
Following all discussions, rumours, opinions etc. having taken place here on the forum, I can let you know that entering Senegal with a bike older than 5 years is no problem at all.
Yesterday I crossed from Mauritania into Senegal (via the infamous border of Rosso due to uncertainty about the state of the road to Djama) without any problem (apart obviously from the usual hassling etc.) with my 6-year old BMW, so everybody planning to go to Senegal by bike can stop worrying (unless they change again off course).
Hope this takes away some of the worrying of Africa-bikers...
Good luck, and safe driving.
