Has anyone hired dirt bikes in Morocco for a few days before?
In an attempt to stall the oncoming winter blues, I'm thinking of taking a week off, flying down to Marrakesh and hire a dirt bike to do a bit of off-road touring for maybe 3 days or so, have a couple of days in Essaoiura then fly back from Marrakesh.
Had a look at some of the guided tour companies and looks like it would cost around £250/day which is a little steep but that does include a guide, equipment etc. Are there any cheaper options?
If you want to ride either Tiz N Test or Tiz N Ticha, it would probably be easiest to hire in Marrakesh. If you want desert / off road, I would head down to Ouarzazate and arrange something with Peter.
I had a very good experience last november with Loc2roues, right in the center of Marrakech. loc2roues location motos scooters quads marrakech maroc I rented a Suzuki DRZ400 for 3 weeks and had a real great time riding through the south of Marokko. Nice light bike and up to every track you can come up on. The owner is a Frenchman with his wife and they will even help you out in case the bike brakes down.
Have a good ride over there.
Hi Mike. I can recommend Loc2roues in Marrakech. Nourredine is v helpful and he has a good range of bikes. I have twice hired xr250's at a cost of about 50 euros/day. I had hoped to hire off him again next week but he's booked out but managed to get a bike off Atlantique Motos in Agadir so thats another possibility - their prices are similar.
Can I just ask what the deal is with money in Morocco? Sorry, not been since 2001. I haven't used travellers cheques in years but is it worth taking these rather than brining a stash of cash with you? Am not anticipating problems but have bad memories of pickpockets on trains etc last time.
I'm planning on taking some Euros with me, but assume you can just get Dirhams out the hole in the wall using Cirrus etc? Any particular cards to avoid taking etc?
i have been trying to email loc2roues (as they seem the cheapest by far for morocco) but there website does not register my email address, just wondering if anyone else had this problem
I hired a pair of XT660Z Yamahas from Loc2roues in '08, they were really helpful and I would hire from them again. The contact details I have for them from that time may be out of date, but they are:
212 avenue Mohamed V
Galerie ELITE 1ER ETAGE
Tél : 00212 24 43 02 94
GSM : 00212 65 13 04 53
When arranging the bikes I could not get through on the phone numbers to start with, so I e-mailed directly to this address and arranged everthing that way: email@example.com
