At some point, I were leading the way and I realised that I had lost the guys....
So I stopped.
and waited....

First, Anton



then a moment later, Christian





Me: What took u so long ?
Christian: I lost my topcase !

ok......
that's a known issue with the GS


so we fixed it

Let's move, boys.

and they were gone !
Christian and Anton are friends since teenage.... so sometimes... they played like teenager....
"I'm the better one"
"no, I've more than you"
etc....
So here, I think they were trying to see who was the fastest
We're a pack of very mature boys, as I said previously.


Ah, they stopped ! Yes, good idea coz the landscape is FANTASTIC !!

Salut

Finally your report.

Descending le col de Belkhacem with a GS, you had fun isn't it

Unfortunately I didn't take any pics on this side of the col.

I though we traveled light but compare with you, the top case and that's it

merci et la suite STP

okay, I'm feeling a tad better riding off road but that's still a little demanding for me. hence my joy to drink coz I need it a lot.


ready boys ?


let's ride !

yo !

so, where's the Col ?

Anton did it first.
then Christian




piece of cake for him... but I must say that the cliff on the right side is a bit disturbing when u're going down

my turn... I'm afraid, less class. but I wished to do it on my own. no help, gents, if you please.

Sweet F800! I really like the grey color, much better than the yellow black one.

Thanks for the R/R...

After this little episode, time for a little break and water (at least, for me;) )

and then :

Jurgen's gang !
3 german doing Morocco. 2 little bikes and a big lc8.
those guy were serious !
a little chat and they're gone - I'm a bit slow off road for real bikers

At some point we had a quick lunch somewhere and....

it was hot durring the afternoon...

so the pause was welcome.


and yes, I'm quite often opening the way.... not because I'm too fast. the opposite


Did I tell u it was hot around there ?
this jacket is no-good for morocco.

Congratulation, with the pics we cannot really realize how the downhill is heavy and how some steps are huge.
After the col and the small oasis you didn't cross an oued ?
