Overloaded trucks. they drive very slowly, without brake, tyres over used. Be carreful, the road are more dangerous than the tracks

The last track of the trip, which will become a sealed road soon, but now under the rain it looks like "holliday on ice", gently on the brakes if not...

Thanks again, Eric. Still very cold, and I am trying to plan a trip for my summer holiday. Since I cannot ride all the way to Morocco , I am thinking about the Rocky Mountains in the U.S. .

If you have track to share of your ride, it would be fun to put them into Google Earth and fly over the route that you took.

Cheers,

Dave

The trip is finished. For us, it was really a great trip, much more we hoped when we started. I hope you enjoy with this report.
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.
