Eh, it was mostly tarmac - easy!

I read your Morocco trip report from 2007....now THAT was a real adventure. I wish I had the time and the right bike to do the same thing.

Hi
I think the 800GS is a good bike to ride tracks and off road, but alone is not a safe way to do it.

Yes, agreed. The F800 is good, but the hire company would only put on Heidenau K60 tires, not knobbies, which made it a bit hard. I also think the suspension needs work...

Thumb Cab and food?

Never jump into cab or order meals with drinks without knowing the exact costs. The smallest cheapest guide books will always have these requests listed as well as other basic needs (hotel costs, how to call for police, doctor). I admire your sense of travel, how ever you were really lucky in not getting really fleeced on your adventure. That 70 dollar dinner in Thailand was about 10% of their monthly salary, and you covered that on just one meal. Be careful and continue to travel.

Yeah! Lesson definitely learned, dont worry bout that! I was much more savvy when I came back 2 weeks later....but thats another chapter.

Sorry its coming so slow. I was hit off my 950 by a truck about 8 weeks ago, and kind of broke 5 bones and lost the use of my right arm. Only just got out of hospital, and still learning to type one-handed. Don't worry, more coming soon.

Please, bore us with your detailed and pleasant writing of what's going in this adventure.
It's like the ride to Merzouga. Flying over the road, all day, feeling happy for being alive and enjoying the landscapes and the thoughts they sugest.
Get back to your bike, in good shape, as soon as possible.
Thanks.
