West Afrika...

Hi Flucky,
I'm currently on a RTW, back in the UK beginning of July. I was planning on doing a quick loop around the UK, but may be very interested in joining you for the lands end to john o'groats trip, and perhaps down into Morocco. I'll be riding a KTM 640 Adventure.
Drop me an email if you want to talk more, and I can give you my blog details. You might read a bit and not want to ride with me!

All the best,

Rick

When are you planning to leave?

We're heading down to cape town too, currently touring europe, but have the ferry booked to Tunis on the 28th Aug, we're in no hurry so maybe we'll ride a little/lot together!

Ride Safe

Matt
