Wicked Morocco September 2014 - interested?

Hey guys, i'm planning to do a morocco trip up to the max of 4 weeks. i would like to take the ferry from genoa to tanger, the rest of the trip has not been planned yet. just one thing is for sure: it is not going the be a hardcore offroad trip ;)

as i do not really like riding alone, i wonder if someone else is going there at the same time? plan b would be meeting riding buddies on the ferry

if anyone is interested, feel free to pm me ;) also for further information.

Hello Phillipp!

My mates and I will be in Morocco in September too.
But only for a week.

If you will see motorcycles there with license plates from Ukraine, Finland and Germany, it could be us.

When are you going? I was thinking of going to Morocco too but from Spain, not from Italy- It's usually a lot cheaper to get the ferry from there.

In Morocco, I'd like to do the west coast, down to Western Sahara, that would be cool in September!

I might be going with a Friend so all the merrier,could do with some company to be honest.

I posted a question on the Africa Regional section asking for recommendations for the best time of the year to ride Morocco as I want to go in 2015 but not sure when. Any info on why you picked September or any other times of the year recommandations would be gratefully received. I've yet to receive any responses from that post (about a week now).

Hi Philipp!

Morroco is on my ticklist but September is a bad month for me. I would like to go in October and roughly the same amount of weeks.


And I'm looking for company for a trip to Morocco.


Philipp, or other, send me a PM, if you are interested.

2-up Morocco in 2014

We're looking at a 2-up ride in late SEP/early OCT '14 on our Varadero. We plan to depart Paris for Mallorca for a couple of days before riding down to ferry from Tarifa or Algeciras to Tanger. Then it would be south to Rabat, Marrakech, Ouarzazate, Borrain Dades, Todra Canyon, Erfoud, Merzouga, Fez, Chefchaouen (at least one overnight in each of the places mentioned).

After that, it'll be an interesting, but not yet planned route back to Paris.

Maybe we can meet up somehow somewhere? Our exact dates aren't firmed up yet.

Feb. may have some issues with snow going through the High & Midi Atlas mountains. I went through the pass from Marrakech to Ouarzazate one time with 3m of snow beside the road. The pass was open but very cold & slippery. Many pistes may be closed entirely. Either along the coast or more inland should be good, just the mountains are in question.You can go around either end with a lot longer distance involved.

More up to date info should be available here ... http://www.ukgser.com/forums/showthr...831#post818831
