    C'mon. I want to see how the romance between you and Reg turns out.

    (Not literally you understand. I don't want pictures of that. Ooh, Ride Reports has just taken on a whole new meaning. )

    DAY 11: Friday 10th April 2009

    Imilchil to the Kasbah Didis Hotel



    On the road:




    So I think today was my fear day. We went through the Dades Gorge, the sheer drop on my left was excruciating, I should have told someone a bit more vocally about my fear of heights....














    Fanum looking cool as always

    Notwithstanding the fear I dropped the bike in the mud as well, what a twat, front end went on me, didn't stand a chance but to be honest I was elated about finally dropping the bike, good to get it over and done with....

    This is how you sort of do it:



    So's this....



    This is not cool.....




    We also had a mental river crossing, poor Farm Boy (Chris) thought he had bust his leg getting it trapped between his pannier and the rocks as he crossed the water, bloody kids throwing boulders in the crossing.....



    Bob tries to kill me



    Speggo does the hard part and then.....

    Pete was raging when Chris left him (the hills echoed to the sound of a made Pole swearing uncontrollably, we came upon Pete looking glum not sure how to do the crossing, in the end he did it with some style....



    I seem to recollect something about a mad shepherd's dog trying to chew my leg off, I exagerate, but the point is made, Mr Ifan needed to push me out of the big hole the bike went down when I lost my line, all those flexing muscles, enough to make a girl swoon....

    There was also a bit of fun at 9,760 feet, Mr Ifan got the truck stuck in the ice, apparently he thought he could do it without the diff locks on, turned out he couldn't, so Fanum was right....

    Speggo does something odd again....



    when all you had to do was this......

    Our hotel tonight is outstanding, far too classy for the likes of us, I am now stinking like fury, covered in red mud, haven't washed my Knox T shirt that has been on my back for 11 days, I'm loving it, in true cowboy style I shower with my boots on, they're a bit dirty....







    Speggo tinkers with his bike.....





    the view from the hotel



    That night, Fanum and I spend some time classifying the different types of Moroccan child we've seen, so here you go pop-pickers...

    • waving kid
    • cartwheeling kid
    • running furiously kid
    • 1 Dirham kid
    • V sign kid
    • Fingers in the Ear kid
    • motorbike handle bars kid
    • suicide kid
    • old fashioned british army saluting kid (has Whatton been nearby?)


    A time to chill, it's been an intense and mixed day, laughter rings in my head as I think about what Fanum said to me earlier in the day, "your entry was a bit butch".....well I do like to please.....

    I am so impressed with my bike on the stoney stepped descent, it just smashes it's way through the rocks.... In fact, I'm impressed with my bike period....







    When we hit the valley floor something clicks, I think I may just be starting to get the hang of this off roading malarky, I speed up, the back end bounces and slides all over the place, today is a good day.....



    Poor Speggo got himself stuck in the sand today, the man's a menace, mercifully I'm not trying to pull the machine out....



    We stop for lunch in Nickheb, a bustling little town, quite interesting

    Fanum singing for his supper

    When we make Zagora it's off to Mohammed's, Fanum's bike has a hole in the radiator, Bob's bike needs a bit of panel beating done to it and Paul's KTM is having problems with it's Shocks....





    Whilst bikes get fixed I chat with the kids, soon my bike becomes a climbing frame....
