Re: Scrambler Desert Sled

As a Scrambler owner, there's nothing wrong with the stock bike, unless you go really off piste. Mine was fine in Morocco, on stock tyres and suspension. I fitted a decent home made bash plate and crash bars just in case. The low ground clearance gave my steel bash plate some work, but other than th...

Re: E.D.C Morocco 2016: On/Off road free guided open invite

Mike has a very valid point that shouldn't be dismissed. I rode Morocco in April on my Ducati Scrambler, sorry, not a GS etc! The route from Merzouga to Zagora is pretty isolated at times, and a hard fall on rocks could easily result in broken bones or worse. A medivac from some of these places is n...

Re: Plymouth-Santander Ferry , Avoid being loaded on the bottom deck?

I used the Port Avon in April on my way to Morocco. Once the guy had wandered off I undid the strap, repositioned it, and re tightened it myself. It was down so tight the first time I was fearful of the sidestand snapping or cracking its mounting on the crankcases! I also use an elastic band on the ...

Re: Calais

The delays will be around Calais port, the tunnel is unaffected. I work in France and use it every day ;-) There may be more traffic, but outbound you should be fine. When are you coming back?

Re: Morocco movie of my recent trip

It doesn't seem to like mobile versions of YouTube, and in some countries it's restricted due to the music I've used.

Re: getting old no idea how to ride a motorbike - could I go on adventure motorcycle trips

Just do it! But don't get sucked into the idea that an adventure bike needs to be half a ton of fully loaded BMW GS etc. An adventure bike is anything you have an adventure on! There's a guy currently in Iran on his Triumph Scrambler, and earlier this year I rode Morocco on my Ducati Scrambler. I'm ...

Re: Morocco movie of my recent trip

Sorry guys, I'm not sure how it ended up in this part of the forum and not the movies section!
If an admin can move it that'd be great, ta.
