That seems to be the consensus. Have a copy of the Morocco Overland book in the mail - excited to see what kind of trouble we can get into on 3 tenere 1200s

Anybody have must do's in the Atlas? I hear good things about MH5...

Sorry to say the chances of three XTZ 1200s or anything similar managing MH5 are close to non existent. It was an abandoned track when I tried 15 years ago and has only deteriorated. The problem is, many maps still show it as a main route between Iknioun and Alnif, and people blunder in to get as far as they get.
Check out OSM; I updated this area the other week. There are loads of epic tracks in Jebel Saghro, all easily rideable on XTZs. In fact we're going up there in a few hours.

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.
