My son and I will be going to Morocco this coming weekend.


We could meet up in the South and do a few pistes together, as we will be on or own, we hope to find some folks to join for the desert bits, just for safety.

When are you leaving?

Cheers,

Pieter

I could not reply - GPRS did not work on the way to Spain, sorry about it.
Been told by friends (they left week before us) that they met some group from Poland, who asked about me. Possible it was you?

I just posted short ride report here:
