Europe? Morocco? Africa left coast anyone?

Hi there,
I'll be landing with my lady (a KTM) in Germany on the 12th of March, heading down to Morocco and if all's well, down to Southern Africa. I'll be happy to ride with someone(s) at least Europe to Morocco if not the full monty.
Yes, I'm a virgin at this but tough as nails .
If anyone is planning on riding south of Spain or Portugal for a few days, sure would be nice to do a bit of km's getting acclimated.
Cheers!
Assaf

I'll be landing in Madrid sometime shortly after the 1st of April, where my bike will (hopefully) be waiting for me. From there I head south towards Morocco and then into Morocco sometime in the teens. I'm online quite often, so send me an email if you think our paths might cross.

Cheers.

Thumbs up

Great!
Wile, Louise, I hope to see all of you sometime, somewhere on the way. If you bring with you the attached coupon, you'll be entitled to one night free s on me. .
Kev, sounds like we'll be in FRA almost at the same time. I'll be arriving on the 12th and riding up to Sommer for some TLC. When I know exactly when and where I am, I'll pm you and if you feel like doing some km's together, that'd be great.
Cheers!
