unfortunatly, I hadn't any camera with me (wife drop it in sea) so I have no picture of my little road trip to reach the guys at Tinerhir.
Storm, rain, lightnings, strong lateral wind and sand !
Quite moon like.
We split at N'kob at around 10:30AM.
Estimated arrival time to Tinerhir, 14:30.
I reached it at 16:00 because of the weather.
And Christian and Aurel arrived around 17:00 !
I like it when a plan went without any troubles ;)

I'll post some pictures taken by Christian after Aurel's report.

keep going mate, sounds great.

Hey! The world is indeed smaller every time. The river crossing was performed by a Moroccan-Portuguese joint venture I'm one of the Portuguese (the clever one with a sub 200 kg bike ). We chatted for awhile about my LC4. And that's me crossing the hotel bridge at the hotel. Thanks for the pics and report.

I remember the 2 Africa Twin guys..... they were fast and efficient !
But I think I remember too a 3rd bike, yes.....
may be the LC4. you were the leader, weren't you ?
But you were too fast for me !
remember the small 12GS trying to follow the 990Adv and the DL650.....
I'm afraid it was me.....

Great report Aurel .The pics and the scenery are incredible, and the ride, with all that river crossings, floods .

Real adventure you've got through there, and the crash, that left you with the broken handlebar ...

Upon arrival were some bikes waiting like we will.
Sounds like they choose small bikes... I'm wondering why....

See the guy with an orange Tshirt. Pierre and his brother Laurent have 2 400XR. perfect bikes for Enduro in Morocco.
We will learn later that some kms after having leaved Tangier, Pierre had troubles with the engine. As we're back now, we'll investigate.

Tangier white harbour is becoming visible on the blur horizon. I'm talking with an old chap, a moroccan leaving in Normandy (quite a shock for him I guess), about the Hercules's pilars, the end of the world for the ancient greeks.
