    Motorised vessels give way to sail. I would wager that's what the yachtsman angst was about.
    Indeed you are correct. I was on the yacht and can vouch with absolute certainty that is exactly what the nautical dispute was about.

    I just made the point there is not a correlation between the distance or time taken to travel it that equates to it's value which was the assumption given in the post I was replying to.

    All this we and us business try talking for yourself.

    It must be the keen anticipation brought about by the smells of not so distant Araby wafting over the gunwales, that gives it its greater value.

    Hi

    I tell you that Morocco is really a fun place to ride. Roads that test your skills or at least mine to the limit and really friendly people. We are off at the end of April again and ten days staying in reasonable hotels will cost us all in about £1,150 each. Ferry, Food, Fuel and Hotels etc.

    I will be just 74 years of age then but still count down the days until we depart. It certainly beats retirement.

    Hi

    Very interesting and I thought you were a novice just shows that I must never judge a book by it's cover or a biker by his or her's posts.

    Yes we will enjoy we normally do something like this at least twice a year. The fellow biker that puts up with me still works for a living (poor sod) so not so easy for him to find the time. We have done Spain and Portugal almost to death. The Alps, Eastern European counties and Morocco so far. I would like to venture further into Africa but it might not be that safe.

    It is brilliant. Look on it as a mini cruise. If sea rough just go to bed. On arrival do not miss the Picos just 65 miles from the ferry terminal.
