James, I am looking into a trip through North West Africa around October 2010. I am planning between 2 - 3 months and would love to start with Algeria, onto Niger, looping through Mali, Guinea....and onto Morocco.
I am still reading up on options, routes and trying to find the best bike to do this on.
My trip is still very flexible and open to other interested parties.
I will be hopefully be doing this on a motorbike, +-600cc, still be be chosen.
If this suites you or part suites you, perhaps we could join up for a portion of the trip ?
