Trail riding in Morocco...Picture heavy

Had a great time trail riding in Spain and Morocco and thought i would share....Morocco is a bit of a dump but the people are friendly enough, Got offered hash to buy countless times everywhere!
Flew to Malaga in Spain and met a few guys who had booked the same trip as me. Spent a couple of days there in Spain before we set off on mixture of Yamaha wr250's and KTM 450's.
We rode to Algeciras near Gibralter and caught the 30 minute ferry to Ceuta. We then rode to Tetouan and stayed overnight. The next day we went to Chefchaouen and stayed for two days. The next day we rode to Fes and stayed overnight. From Fes we rode to Al Hoceima and along the coast road...when i say road it was about 100km of mountain mudbath with diggers and lorry's, no roadcones or traffic lights and only a man with a little red flag trying to control traffic and machinery We stayed overnight in Haidra and caught the ferry back the next morning. Back at base we had done a total of 1500km.
The off roading was excellent and some not for the faint hearted or inexperianced rider.
Ive got a load of random pictures as i know most of you cant read and only enjoy looking

That looks like a great time and beautiful dirtbike country. That balanced rock is amazing. What are the sacks with the colored powder in them?

Fantastic! I didn't know it was just a ferry crossing to get there, lol. I have a friend from Morocco, she is very European. And a little crazy.

It only takes about 30 mins to cross and it was around 60 euro's.......The Moroccan drivers are world class IDIOTS, a couple of us nearly got taken out a few times

very cool pictures n whatnot! would love to do that someday.

Surprising tho that the gas quality is high enough to warrant the use of the high strung 4 stroke motors that require premium gas here in the states.

Now that was a really sweet looking trip Wood! Man I'd love to do that some day. That really makes me miss my off roading days of a few years back.
