We're currently in Merzouga and trying to decide whether to give these a go. Chris's book warns of feche-feche west of Remlia, around MA6KM156, which I probably should heed! Has anyone done these on a big bike? We are both pretty experienced riders, but that won't help a sinking bike!
And it's a long way back of we can't make it.
Conditions great at the moment, apart from the cold nights!
Telling me!- just watched some of your videos & spent the last 2 hrs on your excellent site, reading about your last visit in 2002- with EXCELLENT photos!-
I am going to Morocco in April- so hope you can put a video or 2 up, along with photos /write up of this experience!
There is about 6kms of soft feche feche as you cross the Oued Remlia.
I have done this twice on a lightly loaded 640 Adv, most recently in mid October 2012. On both occasions I found this stretch of feche feche to be challenging as there are deep 4x4 tracks that constantly twist around the riverbed, thus making it very difficult to build momentum and speed. It also makes it hard to pick your own line to avoid the sand ruts.
Unfortunately I have to disagree with Cabrita and say that I would avoid this on a 1200 as this section will be very hard work. I would only attempt this on a large bike if you are very competent in riding in sand.
Thanks guys, I feel we've chickened out now! Now in Foum Zguid. But had a great day yesterday doing the north half of MS4 and the south half of MS6 - nice remote riding! And spectaucular at the end dropping towards Tagounite - thought I had it on GoPro but sadly not :-(
Glad you enjoyed it and hope I didn't scare you off. The rest of that piste is very nice, it is just unfortunate that the Oued crossing is a real pain on a heavy bike!
If you want another route in that region, you could reverse ms7 from Foum Zguid in the direction of Mhamid. There is a low dune section for about 7kms before you reach Mhamid that would be hard work on a 1200 but you could avoid this by bearing NNE in the direction of Tagounite before you hit the Mhamid dunes. This should be ok on the 1200s.
