North Africa & Middle East
The catalyst was my sister & family moving to Cairo, the current idea is taking BMW R1100GS on first trip outside of UK. Route being contemplated is "round" the Mediterranean. UK-Marsaille-Tunisia (ferry)-Libya-Egypt-Jordan-Syria-Turkey-?-?-?-UK or the reverse!.
Current issues under consideration and would be only too pleased to receive comments on are:-
Timing. Only have a max of 3 weeks
Tyres. The perennial problem (T66 at present)
Egypt. Entryexit, looks to be horrendous?
Route. To/from Turkey (haven't looked at it yet however it may have to be quick).
And of course shed loads of other things such as modifications, contacts etc.
Final thing is that at the moment it is just me, Beemer and "Pugsey"- Wife's idea- get sponsorship and raise money for Children in Need charity.
All comments, suggetions and contacts gratefully accepted as this is only in the early stages of planning and would hope to go in late summer 2001.
