Their raids so successful that Hitler said
"If captured, no prisoners - I want these men dead!
Too late he discovered his men were not keen
to Battle with those wearing berets of Green.
Just done the same for my son and I who are also going in April. Good saving so thanks very much for the "heads up". Now just got to decide our route in Morocco for our 8 days over there.
I would recommend Wheels of Morocco (www.wheelsofmorocco.net), they are just awesome. I did a tour with them and they offer guided and self guided tours. They are official BMW partners and their tourguide is just awesome and fun:-) Plus they are based in Morocco, so they know the country, actual road conditions quite well.
I would love to go to Morocco but only have 1 week: is that feasible?
I would like to take my own bike (GSA) and preferably stay off the tarmac.
Is that overly ambitious?
I don't really think so. Taking your own bike from the UK at best means a ride to Plymouth to catch the ferry and then arriving the next day in Santander Spain. It arrives about mid day. Then you have about 690 miles across Spain for the second ferry to Morocco. At best this really means 2 days plus out and the same back London to Morocco. I would allow 10 to 12 days to allow 7 or 8 days riding in Morocco. Off road experience can be gained by riding on road as some of their roads we found were tarmac one minute and gravel the next in fact the majority of rural roads we traveled were like that or worst but what a great place. We have already booked our return trip for May of this year.
Check www.wheelsofmorocco.net, they are offering guided and also customised self-guided tours, so you can visit what you want to in you own pace. You can do it with their BMWs or your bike. They are based in Morocco so might know the country better than the foreigners:-) Cheers
