is Morocco safe to ride now???

Post by robson » Wed Mar 25, 2015 10:58 pm

Hi Everybody,
I am soon to leave for Morocco for 10 days riding but after recent events in Tunisia
I have really second thoughts. If I cancel trip now I'll take big loss but that's just the money. Do you think there is a bigger risk in Morocco then in rest of the Europe?
Maybe I should not worry? Anybody been there in last months or is going to soon as well?
thanks

Assuming you have bought Travel insurance, there's an easy solution which will reward your understandable concerns.

Visit your local friendly doctor, faking some imaginary illness or other; bubonic plague, is always a good one. Altermatively, present yourself with all the signs of high anxiety induced stress, which should be easy. Your quack will soon sign you off as medically unfit to travel; all your costs (less whatever excess or deductible your policy wording allows for) will be met, up to the policy's limit.

Use the windfall in readies to book yourself a nice week on the Isle of Wight or spend it on decorating your hall.

There's escaped Dynasours on the I-of-W. :ohmy: Try the I-of-M instead but watch out for over enthusiastic bikers up Snaefell. :( :) :P :cheer: :lol: :laugh: :woohoo:

It's odd but nobody has heard from anyone who's been there recently so they must be enjoying themselves rather than sitting tapping away on a phone or computer.

Friends of mine have just competed in the Budapest-Bamako rally in January with no issues. They got a little too near the Algeria border and got moaned at but with no issues.
Mudwiz is going early April for a few weeks and can report back and I plan to go in May with no real second thoughts.
I'l ask Mudwiz to pick up this thread.
