Morocco 1st Nov-16Nov

Hi, im off to Morocco for a couple weeks, catching a ferry from Plymouth on the 1st Nov, crossing Spain to Algerciras ferry to Cueta then doing a loop through the Riff over the Atlas Mountains to Marrakech, then up the Atlantic coast and back to UK on the 16th Nov.

If anyone is interested in a couple week spin or meeting up on the way let me know.

Im also heading to the Ace next Sat for Sams book launch leaving Poole Dorset about 8 oclock if your heading that way.

Cheers Jim

Northern Spain in November

Hi Jim, enjoy your trip, northern Spain in November, it can be very cold. I had snow in northern Spain in mid October 2008. I also had a trip in April 2007, it was cold with frost and fog in northern Spain. As I said enjoy your trip, hope you don't mind me giving you this information, I would love to do North Africa. Wife said, I have done well this year with 2 weeks in NZ South Island, hired 800gs, great fun and weather was great. Tourman

Hi Jim

I might well be at the Ace as well. Will be on a bright orange F650GS twin.

I will be in Morocco for much of October on my Tenere, don't know if I will still be there at the beginning of November.

Tim

Morocco trip

High Tim and Jim,

I will also be going to the Ace on Saturday en route to the ferry for a trip over to Morocco. Although I intend to be away for approx 6 weeks, I'm afraid I will be back home by the time your trip starts Tim. But none the less, it might be interesting to compare notes. You can't miss me, I'll be on a black ST1100 with a top box big enough to sleep in.

Regards....Mike
