Motorbike dealers in Africa
 
Hi there,

Does anyone have any information on dealers for my motorbike in African Countries?

Thanx!

Well, it depends on which brand it is....

If it's a BMW most African countries have a bmw-carshop and at least they can order parts for you (you don't have to mess with the customs, post/DHL and pay taxes in two countries).
If you have a bike used by the police or army it's good. They have a lot of parts and old bikes.

Suppose you are taking ANWB - IRK for parts?

He Meindert,

Great tip! I have an IRK, but still doubting whether I should keep it for next year. What's the advantage?

Ook groet'n

There is a KTM dealer in Lome, Togo about 3 or 4km east of the Ghana border on the coastal road.
They carry a range of spares incluing some tires (18inch rears and 21inh fronts).

What about other KTM dealers in Africa? I know there's Alfie Cox in South Africa, but am more interested in Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Lybia, Niger... ?

Hi, there is a KTM dealer in Langata, Nairobi, Ian Duncan of Sports Motorcycles, good selection of tyres but very expensive, about 200 Pounds Sterling for a pair of Pirelli MT21's

Hi Corne,

In Johanannesburg most (and there are a lot of them) motorcycle shops are concentrated in one or two streets. Easiest way to find them: Buy a Motorcycle magazine when you enter SA.

There is a very helpfull (yamaha/Honda) dealer in Vereeniging (South of Johannesburg). His name is Bauman if I remember well.
(If he's still there... I was in SA more then 10 years ago.....)

Peter
