Looking for mature/retired folk with no time constraints who might be interested in travelling by motorbike to Morocco/Turkey in 2014.
I am 64 and got back into bikes this year,there was a couple of Morocco trips on other forums that i fancied but they were always going to do extensive riding on the piste which would have been too much for me.
so i went on an organised road tour to get my feet wet and that has given me lots of ideas
I fancy going late April and doing mostly road with a little off road (ie connecting the Todra and Dades gorges) I say mostly road but found that some of the B roads in Morocco are just dirt so some kind of adventure bike would be preferable,but also keen to explore hiring in Marrakesh as it works out half the cost of driving down.
I have a enough French to get by,can do minor road repairs like fixing puctures.I have travelled extensively in Europe/Asia by motorbike/pushbike/foot etc
The other trip is in August and is an ABR forum rally to Bulgaria. i would like to take a month at least and do the Transfagarasan on the way down and then ride round the sea of Marmara. Albania and the Balkans on the way back home.
Anyway thats enough for now,if you are interested or have any plans yourself just get in touch
