Togo from south to north - Benin from north to sud

Togo from south to north - Benin from north to sud
I'm going to do a motorcycle trip a little original. Arrival in Cotonou, Benin, buy a Chinese bike. The first week I dedicate to visit the south of Benin. In the meantime, I provide for the registration that allows me to cross the border of Togo. Then through the Togo from south to north to Boukombè liquids return to Benin and arrival in Natitingou. From there south to return to Cotonou. Have any of you done a similar trip? Can you give me some advice? The trip will do it alone so I intend to take the main road. I apologize for the language but do not speak English and use a translator

I would skip registration process, buy CEMAC insurance (it covers both countries) instead. Or skip it altogether. Do not be afraid of going off the main roads. Main border crossings tend to be more hassle than remote ones.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
