Anton is a smart guy
I thought Christian would join the Orange family with his enduro racer background but it looks like he's too old...

Anton was not able to come for our second trip and Aurel jumped in !
But as we were a bit slow for him he did another one the same year.... this time a bit more hardcore !

I'm guessing that knife was made on the island of Corsica?
Every man and his dog has one similar to that over there.

Nice ride report.
Moroc always looks intriguing.
Or is it the lure of Africa?

Your report is simply too good; too may wants to see it. And now, none of the images shows up any more because the bandwidth is exceeded.

Write less interesting reports, poorer images, go to The Netherlands, and you'll be OK.

I spent 4+ weeks in Morocco in a VW van many years ago. Visited many of the places you mentioned. BUT I CAN'T SEE THEM. Do you have them public on your PB site and can they be viewed there?
thanks,
