Riding companion for Africa North to South Start Dec 05'

I have arrived in Malaga Spain to continue my RTW journey. Unfortunatley I ran into great difficulty trying to ship my bike from Caracas, Venezuela to Europe after travels from Canada to Ushuaia/ Caracas. I have found a bike in Malaga and am just waiting for the paper trail to end so I can hit the road. (apparently I have to practically become acitizen of Spain to get this old girl on the road!!) I will be touring from Malaga up to Barcelona in the mountains, via Granada and then back to Malaga to ferry across to Morocco after Christmas sometime. I would like to take in some of the Paris Dakar while Im in this neck of the woods! I plan to take a half a year to cross Africa to Capetown where hopefully I can leave my bike for the Canadian summer. Cheers, Id love the company if anyone wants to team up anywhere along the way. Adios

Hi, Old Beemer

I live in South Africa, I assume you will be in the southern regions between May and July. Unfortunatly I cant get up too north at that time, but it will be nice to hook up along the way, maybe in Namibia/Angola, Botswana, Zimbabwe or Zambia depending on your route, then I can possibly tag along to Cape Town. From your message I assume you are not just rushing through, but actually want to take some of the scenery in while your here. I know SA very well, and have travelled, quite extensively, in all the abovementioned countries, so I am sure my 'local' knwoledge will make this part more interesting. Hope to hear from you some time.

Regards

Gus
