Planning a two week trip to Morocco

I am currently planning a two week trip to Morocco. I would really appreciate any advise/routes/tips etc. Thinking about traveling in April.

All advise is really appreciated. Based in London.

Thanks

Morocco is a common destination for UK and European based riders. Type Morocco in the search box above, and you'll find more info than you can comfortably digest. Bon voyage.

The bike was a Yamaha XT600E, Pirelli MT21 tyres, with Oxford Products soft panniers, some kit from Wunderlich (bash plate, oil thermometer, engine guards), a Garmin GPS2+ with routes from Sahara Overland, and a high windscreen sourced from Dave Lambeth.

Had some problems with the webpage, but this URL works now:

http://www.geocities.com/is_woolley/Maroc2001/

The picture with the Timbuctoo sign in Zagora is probably the best shot of the bike.

I took a Michelin map for general navigation, and used a couple of routes from Chris Scott's Sahara Overland book. I manually programmed the waypoints into the GPS, as the 2+ unit doesn't have internal maps and autorouting.

Hope this all helps.

Iain

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.
