Which GPS did you use? Do you have tracks in a gpx file you can share? (You can attach them with the paper clip icon in the tool bar.)

I used a Garmin GPFmap76. I'll share the tracks

Sunday 29th October Marrakech 0 Km :

Day off at Marrakech. Today menu : tourism, the medina, tannery, washing, siesta and in order to keep your hand in the mechanical business, our usual tire dismantling. For myself I have to repaste all the repair patches : Hey Patrick, Do you think will have enough repair patches ?
mudguard must be fixed

Monday 30th October Marrakech Agouti 280 Km :



We leave at 8 Am, taking the road to Demnate. Today program is the route F4 and G3 in the last Gandini guide. A sealed road until the hydraulic damming of Ait Adel, then the track start soon. This route is very funny, high tracks with wonderful landscapes, a lot of small mountain villages, deep valleys, an excellent track.

We pass small red Bedford trucks, very old and overloaded with people everywhere. For the passengers sited on the roof the view over the precipice must be impressive, they have to trust the driver.

Arriving to Denmate refuelling for the bikes and the bikers, chicken with French fries, mint tea and we start again. do you think we have to purchase some thing just in case ? we have only 100 km to ride its only 2 pm, it will be ok

We pass at Iroultane, an area with dinosaur footprint, but we dont see because I didnt note it. ( we should return one day ).
After a ford, I lose the track on the right hand, mistake quickly corrected thanks to the GPS. Once again we ride on a nice mountain track, with landscapes and villages really superb.
We arrive to the built ford of Imi nOuaqqa noted on the Gandini guide, surprise, the flooding due to the storms , has broken the ford. The step is around 2m. On the opposite bank a young guy riding a donkey is crossing the river, and thus showing us where to cross over.
What are we going to do ?, how is the track further ?. We have already done 50 km from Demnate and normally it stills the same until Agouti our goal. Its 4 pm, its getting dark at 6 pm, lets go we try. Anyway we could return without many problems.
We decide to use the same way used by the donkey ( its normal with an Honda 400 XR ). At first we have to cross a gutter built for watering, down a small slope, driving in the river and get over the opposite bank. Patrick goes without many difficulties, right before the eyes of the villagers,
