Europe - West Africa - Cape Town - East Africa - Asia- Europe

Hi,

I am planing a MC trip starting september-october 2012 from Denmark to west africa, south africa, east africa, middle east, asia and back to Denmark. This is just a very ruff plan, but i like to keep it open and not make to many fixed plans.

Plz send me a message if you could be interested to join me on the way.

I will be riding a BMW F800gs.

Ride on

Simon

w. coast africa

Hi Simon,

Sounds like quite a trip! I have the same rough plan as you do. Leave Europe at the end of October, head down the west coast of Africa, taking about 6 months to get to cape town and if all goes well head up the East coast after that.

Riding a DR650. I'm a surfer and keen to find some waves down the West Coast along the way...

Here is a very rough planned route: http://g.co/maps/gf6mr

Not sure about Egypt with the high Carnet price..

Hi Gary,

Thanks for your messages. It sounds like we have almost the same plans (your traveling map is more or less similar to my ruff plan ). I do not want to rush during this trip but experience, see and try a lot of different things - so i think the 6 months is perfect for london - cape town. Must admit am not a surfer but i love the ocean so am keen on giving it a try .

Tried finding your email enabling us to communicate there. Didn't manage so plz send me an mail @ simonkring85@hotmail.com

Cheers,

Simon

maps

Hi Simon - ahhh, a map says 1000 words, eh? It sounds like the Saudi Visa is a tough one to get. Have you looked into riding across China? From posts here on the hubb it sounds about impossible. However, I also want to go across asia - figured I'd try to tackle Africa first...

here is a verrrrrry rough route across asia:

Dublin to Tokyo moto - Google Maps

I'll send an email..

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.
