Would this be suitable for an off-road newbie (many years ON road) on a crf250, or is that too small ? would a bigger bike be better? I shall get what practice I can!

Yip for the Plateau Rekkam to the Erg Chebbi. Back over to Zagora and on to the Cirque de Jaffar region.........Christophe has it routed.


Waiting for the French school board to issue the October school holiday dates.

The Suit:What would you consider to be your greatest weakness?

Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.

Hi Keith, I’m definitely interested in joining you and the other nutters on the next trip. The ride report is brilliant and really gives a flavour of what to expect.

Cheers, John

Hi Fatowl....

If it were I a single cylinder in and around plus 600cc would be ideal.... Willy Spray, on the boards here and with the same road-only experience took a GS1200 on his first trip after being advised the same.........next trip he rode a GS650 single. He also has a CRF 250 which he rides the odd trail in Spain. These can bimble along just fine on the back roads.

If the CRF can be geared to sit on the autoroute or you can ship it down in e.g. a van then it'll be fine. Think also of saddle comfort. Just find a campsite to park the van up or street park it close to a cop shop and let them know you'll be away for x amount of days?

You tend to ride at the speed limits due to radar controls here and there once in Morocco.


Off road practice will not do any harm....farm lane type going...hardpack....you see what's what in the ride report and videos.......I ride the fesh-fesh for the challenge of same.


If you can't take ridicule and banter this ride is not for you....as you can see, dopey hairstyles are compulsory for some....


Anything else just ask.





:D

Hello Keith,
looks like a few of the usual suspects from this year have signed up for 2018 :D
Count me in as I would be interested in going again depending on the dates
