    Hello,
    i am new here in this forum. My name is Peter. I am from germany (Coburg) and i travelling with my wife together. we made in the last years some beautiful rides through african countries.
    Our plan is for this year to start in germany with a Honda transalp to travel about France, Spain, Maroc, Westsahara, Mauretanien to Sengal. i think this is a good, easy and very interesting route. But because of the war in Mali, i read about a lot of dangerous because of terrorists from our government. Is anyone her who has done this tour in the last months and can tell us about his experience ?
    Thanks and best regards from Coburg
    Peter
