    Hi all

    I have only just looked at this thread and could well up for this as I have been planning to go for a couple of years now so what the hell.

    I am about 80% certain at the moment with just a few things to sort out before I go.

    Many thanks

    Mark

    Hi tricky/everyone,

    I've got three weeks off at the begining of September and I was planning a trip round the pryrenees with my girlfriend.

    There is a possibility that she won't come and if that's the case I'll be going to Morocco myself. If I do, would you mind if I were to tag along for a few day's ?

    I've no real plans, beach, mountains, desert? under the stars or a 5 star(if I was a rich man) and everything in between, just happy to drift along............

    About me -

    New to the forum (first post infact) got an F650GS, only a small amount of off road experience (more at home on a race track but given up the sportsbikes a few years back). Ex Squaddie, now a firefighter living in Manchester,

    Steve.

    P.S. Any good tips in how to deter the other half would be greatly received

    Fellas, I did Morocco 4 years ago, fantastic first trip. Minor tips (if they help)

    1. Border crossing, don't get scammed by a local calling you over and pretending to be an official.
    2. You can pay one of the locals to guide you through the border xing process as it is far from simple.
    3. Whatch out for the mud ball sellers (locals selling Ganja) they stand on corners in the middle of nowhere with their arms out trying to attract your attention - they are easy to hit.
    4. The King frowns on fraud and is very pro tourists, don't take his name in vein however as it is taken very seriously
    5. If you plan camp out get out of sight of the road and try to keep a low(ish) profile as at best you will be inundated by locals being curious or trying to sell you stuff you don't want
    6. If a Police man waves you to stop, wave back and keep riding. If they come after you (they don't) smile and make you like thought he was just waving
    7. If the Police as you to pay a 'Fine' ask for a receipt and if necessary mention that the King takes a very dim vue on bribes
    8. I could dig out our two week route but I think half the fun is choosing this.
    9.Don't go too far south, that was where AQ killed the French tourists
    10. Enjoy.

    Morroco

    Don't worry about going South the French were killed in Mauritania thats why the Dakar was stopped. Just ride, nothing will happen except you enjoying yourself. Nothing major to look out for just small things that you must learn about for yourself for it to be an adventure. I'm in Spain now on my way home after three months in morroc and the Sahara. Been coming here for years and now own property on the Morroc / Sahara border. Enjoy the trip, I feel like turning around and joining you.

    Never been one to worry about what ifs. i fully believe that when your times up your times up.

    just enjoy until that time comes.
