About a month ago I got back from my first trip to Morocco. A friend and I (both from Belgium) took the ferry from Barcelona to Tangier and on the boat we met three guys from Slovenia who's bikes we'd already seen in the ferry garage. We ended up riding with them the whole time. There was one 1200GS, 3 1150's and then me on my 650 Dakar. Here are some pics from our two weeks on 5 GS's in Morocco
Clearing through customs when we arrived in Tangier:
My buddy Geert outside our Hotel ("Dar Zman") in Chefchouen aka "The Blue City". This town is easy to reach from Tangier so it's an ideal first stop. It's on the edge of the Rif Mountains, known for the growing the stuff you put in funny cigarettes.
Planning a route out of Chefchaouen to Fez:
My four riding buddies somewhere on the road between Tangier and Fez:
Team Slovenia setting up their helmet cam (Go Pro). This was a great piece of kit and they recorded a lot of our riding in full HD. We're still waiting to see some of the footage ...
We got "lost" pretty quickly (I think that's a good thing
) so we asked some passing cars for directions
I was leading that day and decided to ignore all the directions and just head out on some other road
. The resulting views were not bad!
