great trip & write up.

My longest trip was 3500 kms in 5 days through Morocco with my brother last year, and was beautiful and epic too, but this is much far away from mine, in all senses!!!

The ride report is great too, so as more than one said, you have taken us with both of you on that trip, and I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR IT!!!!!

I wish and I guess you have enjoyed your time in the old, beautiful and economically ruined Europe, and I invite you to share more rides with us, because they are powerful!!!!!

FANT糜TICO, AMIGO!!! Good luck, and see you on the road!!

P.S. (I love the french way to salute too, indeed I have adopted it too....as it is said, "when in Rome, do as romans do..."

Regards from Spain/France (I live near the mountains....just in the frontieeeeeeer!!!!)
3500km in 5 days through Morocco? Sounds amazing! A place we were hoping to visit during our 3 day ride of Andalucia back in March. As always, there just wasn't enough time! Really great to see how much you've enjoyed the RR - Appreciate the kind words!

Great report, European Alps is just the most fabulous area for motorcycling, the mountain passes and roads winding their way up the valleys, nothing to compare in my opinion.
I have had the pleasure of riding over there for the last 3 summers,fist 2 solo and last year with the wife. First thing she said, 'When are we coming back'.
The villages, the roads, the lakes, the food, the courtesy of Euro drivers are all so much better. My trips were based out of Munich where we hire the bikes and then proceed to circle and zig-zag our way through the Alps.
Thanks for such a great report, captured the experience perfectly.

Krime, Morocco is amazing indeed, but it's quite dangerous in many senses, and much more riding a motorbike. I know what I say because I lived for 4 years in Melilla(a small spanish piece of land in Africa). The border was 1 km from my house, and I rode over 20.000 kms there with the bike.

Of course, you can have a lot of fun there, but taking in account that not all that glitters is gold. A bike crash there is not a bike crash in Europe or USA. the moroccan health system almost doesn't exist, any survival or limb-saving chances, passes through a quick evacuation to the First World. Of course, an international health&evacuation insurance is compulsory, although it will mind a shit if you crash anywhere around the vast and beautiful moroccan landscapes... I'm not kidding....

If you want closer information about Morocco, don't doubt about contacting me. I'd like to see your ride report there....and your pics, although I don't get along too much with HDR... ;)

But you need no less than 5-6 days there, to ride and see it properly...

Regards

Tomorrow I'll share with you a couple of links of my moroccan videos.

Just to "sharpen your teeth" (I don't know if this saying is said this way in English...but u know what I mean...)

The promised:
this first video has no music because it seems that I annoyed some music companies with it, so youtube has banned the music from it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgU9t4yIkZM

This second one is the long trip with my brother... a very funny ride...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aMyCeGrSNk

As I said before, anyone who would need ideas for routes, places to visit or to avoid, and some safety tips in Morocco, don't doubt about contacting me.

Regards

Great to see you met Ron Fellowes on your trip.
I met Ron and his wife Lynne in Romania July 2012 whilst touring on my R1100GS.
Great company and inspirational.
Interested in what camera gear you use. Do you take multiple exposures? Use a tripod? etc
Brilliant trip report. Thank you.

Absolutely, Just had a look at you great RR, very cool to see the summit of Grimsel with the motorcycle sculpture not surrounded and covered in snow... a very different scene, almost hard to recognize!

Excellent, thanks. I try to use HDR in a subtle way to enhance the lighting without going over the top. I find it's actually truer to the way I saw things with my own eyes during the trip.

I bought that Alpinestars TZ-1 jacket many years ago, about 8 years ago when I bought my GSXR! I love the thing, it's held up well, but definitely not for this type of bike - the length of the jacket just isn't long enough when sitting upright.

Thank you! Absolutely right about the European drivers... they were incredible! In the 3,250km we only got cut off once, and it was nothing serious really. It was incredible how cars were always looking in their rearview mirror, moving over to let you squeeze by in traffic - a massive contrast to way we drive here in and around Toronto.
