Well done, a true adventure ride. I like your attitude towards luggage. Washing yourself in petrol instead of water shows ingenuity :-). You guys sure can ride. The scenery is outstanding, it felt a bit like stepping back in time. Thanks for making the effort and posting all of this.

The web has been a fabulous tool for preparing this trip.
I found everything on internet, waypoints tracks maps etc....
Morocco is really a beautiful country for riding a bike, there is all you need, tracks, mountains dunes, sand stone mud etc....
It is very safe and people are very friendly and welcoming.
The 400XR is a good bike to do this kind of trip
It was worth the wait, eight years the first trip.
I can share wpts tracks etc... I have also an home-made ( not by me ) map with road track etc... compatible Mapsource, I got it in my GPS and it was very useful.

Excellent trip report and pics. Thanks for sharing. An epic journey on an XR is my kind of ride.

I really respect folks who post here in English when it's not their primary language. It's hard to do this, yet still our friends outside the U.S. speaking world do this for us.

Thank you very much, and welcome to Advrider!

Mama mia !
That's the way I like it, Eric.
(french) Superbe ballade (/french)

I saw you're from Ardèche. Friend of mine is living in Viviers. got a Djebel. we plan to do a small trip in the region, like from Montpellier to Viviers then towards rodez.... off road, off course.
not with heavy bikes but on 350DR, 250WRF.
could be fun to grab you on the way.

Back on your trip report, when u were in the Jaffar's, at the bottom, there is a dry river. we tried to follow it, that is going left instead of right followinf the piste.....
a nightmare. it was like quicksand.... with +200kgs bikes.....
but what a laugh we had !

Salut
I'm not from Ardeche, that's my friend, I'm from Gers ( close to Toulouse).
At the bottom of Jaffar we took also a track on the left, like a canyon, we followed it a bit, befor return, It's true there was lot of stones

I readed your report, I'm not sure I should be able to drive on those track with a 1200GS, it's really courageous. I've got also a 650GS too heavy

Great write-up. I thought some of the scenary was looking familiar...


From http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=134454

Whilst the 1200GSA is brilliant for some parts of the trip--I did over 955 miles/1530km yesterday--a lighter bike would be a distinct advantage on some pistes.

Hi Tim,

You're correct, especially for the roads in Morocco but heavier bikes are also needed for long distances, both have advantages and disadvantages,what was the weight of 1200GSA?
