I am currently planning a two week trip to Morocco. I would really appreciate any advise/routes/tips etc. Thinking about traveling in April.

All advise is really appreciated. Based in London.

Thanks

Morocco is a common destination for UK and European based riders. Type Morocco in the search box above, and you'll find more info than you can comfortably digest. Bon voyage.

The bike was a Yamaha XT600E, Pirelli MT21 tyres, with Oxford Products soft panniers, some kit from Wunderlich (bash plate, oil thermometer, engine guards), a Garmin GPS2+ with routes from Sahara Overland, and a high windscreen sourced from Dave Lambeth.

Had some problems with the webpage, but this URL works now:

http://www.geocities.com/is_woolley/Maroc2001/

The picture with the Timbuctoo sign in Zagora is probably the best shot of the bike.

I took a Michelin map for general navigation, and used a couple of routes from Chris Scott's Sahara Overland book. I manually programmed the waypoints into the GPS, as the 2+ unit doesn't have internal maps and autorouting.

Hope this all helps.
