The GlobeBusters / Motorcycle Outreach research expedition was successfully completed when Craig Carey-Clinch and Barbara Alam arrived in the Senegalese capital of Dakar on their BMW R1200GS last Thursday. 

The husband and wife team rode the final stages from Cap Skirring in the Casamance to Dakar in three days going via Banjul in The Gambia and Kaolack in Senegal. They will now fly home to London, arriving in the morning of the 17th.

During their four week trip, the couple have travelled 4116 miles from Malaga and have ridden through eight countries. Their Touratech equipped R1200GS has proved to be an excellent choice of bike, with both machine and equipment performing well during the entire journey.

Craig Carey-Clinch said; "The expedition has achieved all of its aims, we have visited some amazing countries of immense variety and met some of the nicest people on the planet. We are confident that December's GlobeBusters expedition will offer participants among the best motorcycling and most inspirational experiences that are on offer anywhere.

"We are both grateful to our sponsors, in particular BMW Motorrad and Touratech. The journey would not have been possible without their support.
