After refill, we entered Midelt. Had to withdraw some cash. Had to get rid of gemstones sellers. Had to localize the "piste" for Imilchil.

We went towards Jaffar.
Christian (strom) and Anton were over excited.... the piste, yes !

I was not in the same state of mind.
I had the 12GS since 1 month and seldomly rode off road in my entire life.
As a matter of fact, I'm a 100% noobie still as I started to ride in Sept 2004......



So after a few Kms, I was nearly exhausted. and parched too.
The 2 other rode standing on the footpegs. I was too afraid so my butt was riveted to the saddle. eyes focused 2 cms ahead the tire, on the ground.
worst attitude to have for an off road driving....



Christian, lets call him the Prof. was trying to give me advices.

the scenery was fantastic. but you probably have guess by now that I was recovering from the little trip from Midelt. heartbeats were quite fast, hands moisty, mouth dry..... fear, my friends, that is call fear. or probably a better word is "apprehension".

here you are able to see where the piste is going.
we were going to the left of the picture, going downward on a gentle slope...
gentle.... yes, but there was a double slope, the second was that the road was not horizontal but like that \ . not so steep but you get the meaning.
Down in the valley you could see a dry riverbed where we will have some troubles to go thru as it was like sand but with round stones.....

here is another shot.
The prof is taking the shot of the only obstacle I refused to pass.
250% fear. too much.
it was a huge stone in the upper part of the road, leaving a little gap between the void and the right part of the stone. also, there was a bump under the stone.
"nahh, prof, I can't, I'm sorry, I cant"
So Christian went down the slope with the strom, parked it, went up, took the picture, took the GS and passed the obstacle.

we're higher, temp was lower but still extremely pleasant.






Trees had appeared.



Time for a pause. time to drink. time to rest.
peaceful.
Monday, 14:42
