Belgium to West Africa for 3 months oct 2006
hello all the bikers of the world !
if anybody is interested to join us ...
My wife (GS 650) and myself (GS 1200 adv **) are planning a 3 months round trip in West Africa (Morokko, Mauritania, Mali, Senegal, Niger, Burkina, Togo, Benin and Ghana) departing mid october 2006 from Brussel.
As we went already different
times in Morokko (99, O1, 02, 03) we will just stop there to visit friends.
Our return is planned end december 06 or januari 07, shipping the bikes back from Dakar or any other west african harbour/airport. I would not like to drive Spain/France in middle of winter ... after such a sunny ride ! (lol)
We are no "remote desert drivers",just like discovering people and countries. Were needed we drive "unpaved".
We have both living experience in Africa (North and middle) and have travelled by bike all EU/US/Taiwan/North Afrika. We speak both fluent french (motherlanguage)and Francoise some arabic.
So, why not join !
We are also keen to receive by mail (email@example.com) any travel and route advise.
Thank you !!
** yee ! I just ordered a new GS 1200 adventure to replace my beloved GS 100 ... which with 140.000 km mostly overloaded ... merit retirement (no, I will not sell it )
