16 November Spin

Today I decided to stay again in the town of Tarfaoute, which eneabled me to do a circuit of 225KM without my bags, this took me 6 hours with a few drink stops. Tarfaoute to Tioulit to Tanait to Tighimi to Tiffermit and back to Tarfaoute.

There is nothing Anti about the Anti Atlas it is breathtaking and even now in mid November the temperature afternoon is in the 30’s.

The roads are virtually empty and the scenery is always breath taking. I ended up after a suggestion from Paul BHT at the painted rocks.

The Quad lock wireless charger is proving unreliable. But everything else is good. I am now wondering which way to go, head further south and visit for a day the Western Sahara, or chill out a bit and start heading for the coast…..


Belgians in the desert

Today Thursday the 9th of November I did a circuit without my bags, from Erfoud to Merzouga, then on to Taouz to get to the end of the road, as it were. There I did a uturn and came back on my self to Merzouga and on to Rissani, I continued on to visit Gara Medour.

Between Erfoud and Merzouga, fortunately I met up with seven Belgian lads, I am sorry I can only remember Dominics name, but they allowed me to tag on with them for two hours and we went off road for a while. The smaller bikes had it easy compared to the bigger bikes.

Once we split up, I lunched and did the rest myself.

Sorry the images are not in order, my tablet seems to mix them up and I can’t figure out why.
