Timeframe/difficulties involved with German transit plates
Hi all, I am thinking very seriously about buying a bike in Germany and driving down eventually to Bamako, where I would sell for what I can get. The idea buy is to buy something cheap and if it breaks, i'll just ditch it and hitchhike the rest of the way. I will have basicaly an open legged trip from Germany to Bamako. Questions, it seems from what I know the best solution is to get export plates. How hard is that process seeing that my german is at phrasebook level? How long should I plan on being in Germany? I have Norwegian citizenship if that makes a difference. Is it a big process? If I buy a bike on ebay.de from a private person is that going to be harder to get liscensed for some reason I am not thinking of? Hope someone can give me some tips.! Other legal issues I am not thinking of in africa?
