Hi,

here's mine on the Col de Belkassem in the east of Morocco. This was on my second Morocco trip in 2010 (one in April and one in October). The pass was challenging on the way to the top but even quite difficult on the way down. For a GSA that is On the way up they tried to remove the big rocks from the track. On the way down this was futile so they didn't bother at all



Greetings, Tom.

Something like a nice set of Ohlins would fit the bill!
