Thanks. We also went through Algecircas, but I don't remember much of the border procedures. Overall it was quite easy. I'm already in Zaragossa, heading north.

Have fun,

Pip

Haha Wibo, I've replied in your thread and I even got Noah's tracks from your trip. I got the E-07's as well

A few days ago I did the Merzouga-Zagora piste and visited that Dakar garage. Now I'm in Sidi Ifni in a €15 balcony room overlooking the ocean.

Weather seems to be crap in Europe? I'll probably just stay here longer and take the overnight moto-rail home instead

merzouga - zagora

Hi Squawk (or others),

I am going to make a Morocco trip in about two weeks. Just like you, it will be a solo trip with a packed aprilia pegaso (tuscany tibet version). I also adopted the merzouga-zagora (I meant the Mhamid ;)) trip in my favorites. What is the difficulty rate of that piste?

It's kind of hard to say.. I guess it depends on skill, the bike, and weather etc etc. The vast majority told me to not even think about it and then a few said it was not that bad at all. I'd never ridden in sand sand but I grew up with dirt bikes and snowmobiles. I did Merzouga-Zagora the day after a huge sand storm, and during random isolated sand twisters.. it was not that bad really. I would just give yourself lots of backup time and make sure you have extra fuel/water/money etc.. I was prepared to sleep in the desert if I had to. There are places to sleep along the way and people do live there as well, so it really isn't as bad as most say imo. It was a highlight of the trip for sure. I did ride with other bikers about half of the time and if I'd met some bikes to ride there I would have gone for Mhamid as well
