Slovenia in 2009, Triglav National Park. It looks harmless but this was the most borderline "river" crossing ever. Some stones had a very slippery layer of dontknowwhat on them that made the bike go wheeeeeeeeeeeeee. I almost dropped it three times and eventually had to ask my wife to get off and just walk across it (we drive two-up). This picture was taken mere seconds before I actually did drop the bike on its left side.



More pics:

A hotel in Alnif (Morocco). Very helpful guys who sorted out fixing a friends bike after he threw it at the scenery.

Ooh, now you're asking. Up in the Atlas somewhere, Imilchil perhaps? Will dig out my map and let you know.

The first photo was taken on MH4:



The mud was courtesy of a fun track on the way to Lac Islet up near Imilchil, and the Hotel is at Alnif (rather obviosuly!).

Somewhere on MH4 of Chris Scotts book on Morocco


And somewhere on MH5 where Mel (on the 660) took a tumble. I have no idea where the locals appeared from, there were no dwellings for miles!
