I'm taking my Namibian registered bike into Moz in November, crossing the border from Eswatini. I'm pretty clear on the vehicle documents needed, including 3rd party insurance. I'll watch the speed limits too. However I see cars need to carry warning triangles, I assume that's not needed for bikes? Any other useful information to share about riding in Moz?

Join Drive Moz on facebook. there is a wealth of info on there in this regard and you'll get the answers you need. We have travelled through on bikes from Lebombo and Goba. Bikes didn't need the triangles etc.
Also, make sure you have cool riding kit. Moz can be insanely hot at this time of year.

Thanks for the info. That's as I expected. I'm on DriveMoz but they seem to mainly cater for drivers. I suppose the clue is in the name.

Yes will be hot. Both my riding companion and I have ridden in Africa before and we have light riding gear. Thanks again.

I was fined in Moz because I didn't have reflector stickers on the front and back bumpers of my car. When I entered Moz a few months later on my bike I made sure to put reflector stickers on my bike, and for good measure also pasted a ZA sticker to my rear fender (NAM sticker for you I'd guess)
I also got suckered into a fine/bribe in Maputo for making a u-turn on my bike......everybody's out to supplement their salaries in Moz!
Enjoy your trip though, Moz is a beautiful country, and Maputo is a great little city
