Morocco on a Moto

Morocco on a Moto in November 2023, once I arrived in Tangier I did 5000KM in 25 days, amazing countryside and well worth a visit.

Watch some videos here below

Day one, boat from Tarifa to Tangier and then ride to Chefchaouen.

After two nights I took a lovely ride to Fez. A nice town, where unfortunately I got robbed from my room, something which I imagine is very rare. I let it go as I did not want any rough justice.

After two nights I rode through the Atlas to Erfoud the gateway to the sahara, a long days riding and it was cold in the morning but warmed up as I rode south, I had my best meal of the trip on the roadside.

After two nights in Erfoud I rode across the country a bit to Boumalne Dades where I ended up staying four nights as it was just so nice there with plenty of rising to do without bags.

So four days later I headed towards Tafraoute

Tafraoute was a cool place so I stayed three days and then did a long ride possibly the nicest ride ever, across the High Atlas to Asnil

From here I rode to Essaouira on the Atlantic coast, a nice town, however I had got used to staying in small places so left the next day.

I ended up zig zagging my way back to the mountains and the Sahara.

After hurting my back, as can be seen in the video I headed back to Tangier and Spain.


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.
