3 4 day trip in Mid November

Hi Folks,
So after a few years of reading trip reports we are finally headed on a Moroccan Adventure. Aiming to do 3 to 4 days 2up touring out of Marrakesh or Agadir. We fly into Agadir but are currently looking at going to Marrakesh to rent a bike off Loc2Roues.

We're not pushed at spending the time in a mad rush to see the dunes as we'll be back again, more thinking of trying to put together an interesting loop.

We like the sound of seeing the gorges landscapes and some of the berber towns so any suggestions for a 3 day loop would be appreciated, thanks

Also if the experts such as Chris, Tim et all can advise on what weather to expect / places to avoid in mid November that would be most appreciated.

Weather varies, November could be warm and sunny in the middle of the day but chilly in mornings and evenings. However if there's no sun it will be chilly all the time (but probably still better than home). Look at a long term forecast as your dates come near, for example, https://weather.com/en-GB/weather/te.../MOXX0004:1:MO

Mountains are colder due to the altitude. You could look at renting in Agadir (I don't however have any experience of this) and heading south for Tafraoute (heaven on earth for me) and Sidi Ifni on the coast.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
