Would you tour Morocco West Sahara on DRZ400E?
A wee bit of advice needed if you don't mind.....
I'm keen to do some touring in Morocco / Western Sahara on a motorbike, and had been lookin at possibly buying one of the normally recommended bikes for this purpose....KTM, BMW etc.
It's only the past couple of days that i've been having a re-think, and was wondering what would you guys think of the idea of doing it on a smaller bike.
I do a bit of offroad riding down here in Southern Spain and own a '04 DRZ400E.
Is it possible to mod this bike to make it suitable for a trip like this, and would the trip be majorly compromised as compared to using other bikes built for this purpose?.
I guess a long range tank would be a must, but what about fitting luggage racks etc, etc.
I enjoy heading off into the bush and roughing it in an old 4x4 while down in S.A. so wild camping would be my preference, therefore i would also need facility to carry a small tent
I haven't previously done any touring of this sort on a motorbike, and would love to hear some tips/advice from people who have been there and done it.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
All the best Dave.
