Raid de L'amitie 2011

My first raid de L'Amitie...
some thoughts

Day 1 (actually it's two days) : 21/22 April : Lisbon - Agadir

12 30 time to leave, our forecast was: 10 00
Straight to Allgarve
Spanish guy screaming in the freeway... looks like the 650X seat was about to take off
Arrive in Tarifa at 20 30. Ferry at 21 00.
Lots of rain, average mileage 17 litres / 100 km, or something like 14 mpg
adios Tarifa

Shaking Ferry
seasickness... for some people!
Balance session in the deck at top speed

And now in video

Arrive in Tanger
Customs, usual morocan mess
temperature 9 degrees, 8 degrees, 7 degress
Is this Morocco or Central Europe!?
