First 24 hours in Morocco

There is an excellent article in the Adventure Bike Rider magazine ( in the UK) in the September/October edition. It describes the formalities before your entry into Morocco and during.
I have photocopied it and will be taking it with me.

Us too!

We're heading down there at a similar time - ferry from Portsmouth to Santander 2/3 October, will probably get the ferry from Algiceras to Tanger Med a few days later. No route planned as such - want to get to Marrakesh at some point, and meander down to the southern end which Chris Scott reckons is the best part.

We have 7 weeks, which is handy as neither of us are iron-butters - we like to travel slowly!

Riding two (modified!) MotoGuzzi V7 Classics just to be different

Our first time out of Europe too, and would be happy to meet up with folk along the way for and/or rides

We were delayed with the ferry problems but on our way a few days late - halfway down Spain now, planning on ferry to Morocco in a couple or three days after staying with a friend near Seville. We're on our way, woohoo!

I may make it to the ferry for the same time. I'm currently at Cazorla in Andalucia getting a bit of offroad training with Touratrail. Although i think just making it to their house without falling off or dropping my bike should qualify me as "off-road god", lol.

About one days travel from here to Algerciras so if you can PM your ferry details I'll see if i can get in time for same one.

If not enjoy Maroc, maybe I'll see you on the roads. I'm the one on a blue Triumph Explorer thats way too overloaded.

We're stuck in Madrid waiting for parts after blowing a head gasket just south of Salamancar :-(
Hoping to be back on the road and Morocco bound next week. Very grateful for European breakdown cover, so better here than Maroc, but a bit of a bummer nonetheless...
