Wanted bike: ghana, west africa. august-sept 2011.

i am after a bike in ghana.
not too picky on the bike some thing sort of like a tenere or gs 650 or what ever. just want to see whats around.
a preference for a south african registered bike so i can sell it again back in south africa.
so if some one wants to ride one up then i can purchase it off you (if still fully fuctional)for a fair price and ride it back.

will be in ghana for a while so if your on a trip and are running late its no problem. would prefer to get it around late august to get use to the traffic/set up the bike for me.

anyone keen?
