ChrisK 14 Oct 2002 19:54

Hi, Frank and DJ, I am in Turkey at the moment heading for SA down the East Coast, head for Syria in three days time, will be ahead of you but may be able to give up to date information, I was in Transylvania a month or so ago, shame we didn't meet up. Stayed at Sighisoara and Sibiu in that region. Cheers Chris and Gill and a 1986 BMW R80G/S. Sorry that this has nothing to do with the original post but hey, we may meet up as you head North and I head South. The bike is white and heavilly overloaded.

Hi Meindert,
I'm flying to SA in late Jan/early Feb '03, I'm buying a bike there and then heading up back to England. Maybe we could meet up on your return route up the east coast? Give me a bell if you like, cheers,

Jasper

gozell 1 Dec 2002 21:36

yeah, no worries that would be cool to meet up. Pretty quiet with bikes at the moment just campervans.... Im in southern Marocco at the moment... Are you going through Nigeria or around?

Cheers

jj 3 Dec 2002 01:30

I was going to go around but now it looks like I'll be in that region during the saharan summer, so I'm planning on going through Nigeria and under the sahara - through Benin, Togo, Ghana etc. Cheers
