I had hoped to stop at the HU meeting in Spain on the way but its now been confirmed for the 14th of september which is too early for me so I'm intending to wait to the end of ramadan. I might well see you somewhere if you're there in early October. Have a good trip.
I will not be taking the Triumph as I would cry if I dropped it, too many shiny bits.. lol
I got hold of a BMW F650 for £600 back end of last year & have kitted it out just for this trip.
The preious owner had spent a fortune getting it thro' it's MOT & then part ex it for a Tiger.
There will be 2 of us both celebrating becoming "Old Gits" at 50..lol. My Brother in law will be on a Super Tenere in Camel racing colours (hope no camels try and race him!), & My F650 is red.
We are booked on the Portsmouth to Bilbao ferry on 1st October, so we should be in Tangers around the 5th, hopefully we will be able to catch up on the road for
or a brew! as Tim's route looks good
