Looking at going to Morocco from the UK in October .Have only ever been to Europe before and would like some company if possible.I'm going from Plymouth to Santander on 30th Sept heading for Portugal to see friends for a couple of days then off to southern Spain to cross into Morocco (hopefully about the 8th or 9th Oct). I'll be riding a DL650 and looking at spending up to two weeks in Morocco (routes,destinations and times are very flexible).
If you fancy a couple of in the and and get away from the here's your chance.
Heading out in October in a Landcruiser also aiming to be in Morocco for the 9th then head down through the middle atlas across to then coast the zig zagging from the Atlantic across to Figuig over the next 3 weeks
Yep! Leaving UK and arriving Santander on 6th October. Arriving Morocco 10th October. Staying for 3 weeks and heading Clockwise. First stop is Fez.
Two up ( me and my wife) on BMW Adventure bike. I hope to see you or Neil on the way.

There's five of us on four bikes getting the ferry on the 3rd/4th October Plymouth-Santander and returning from Bilbao on the 20th. Our paths will probably pass, good to know fellow countrymen will be out there at the same time

Azrou - Midelt (ish)
Midelt - Essaouira
Rest Day Essaouira 12th
Essaouira - Tafroute
tafroute - Tata MA3

Foum Zguid to Taliouine MA7
Taliouine to Ouarazazate MH7/MS9

Erfoud to Figuig Hybrid of ME routes
Figuig to Med Coast
Ferry from Santander 31 October
Most routes are from Chris Scotts book although some are hybrids of several routes and some from hours looking at google earth
We'd love to do the Plage Blanche but being fairly new to this won't on our own.
If any of you bikers are along the same routes we can always travel together (although I expect we'd be a long way behind) and maybe we could carry some excess weight for you
I too am trying to sort a Moroccan trip in October, just waiting for a couple of mates to come back to me.
As I live in the Algarve it could be easy for us to meet up before you sail the straits.
I have no fixed dates as yet, but your 8/9 Oct appear to be fine, and the only agenda I have is to go to Marrakesh! Been three times to Morocco and still not got there.
I have a Africa Twin 750, so it sounds as though we could be nicely matched too.
If you wish to discuss further email me email@example.com
I'm currently meandering around France on a Triumph Explorer with a loose plan to follow the sun south to visit friend in Gibraltar and maybe meet up with another who's going to Morocco on holiday. Your timings could work out good for me and like you I've only ever traveled Europe so moral support for border and navigation would be great. Will watch this thread and let you know if I can meet up.
Thanks for the replies, current plan is myself and Chris (above) are taking the ferry to Tanger Med on the 7th from Algeciras, heading for Marrakech but with no fixed route at the moment. Hope to see you at some point .
