Very cool. Did you ride down from Portugal? And when you are in Morocco, can you just ride wherever you want or was it an organized tour? I'd be interested in hearing more about this, if you have a minute.

Thanks,

M

Hi there!
Yes, I ride from Portugal. It's nearby, 700 km and you're in Morocco. There you can ride as you want, it's a nice country to ride because you see different scenarios: Forest, Desert, Mountains, Seaside.
You can find some pictures\videos here from my last ride:

Sooo cool. I'm in the south of France, so all I have to do is descend through Spain. I'll put it on my wish list right now.

Thanks,

M

Just a V-Strom at Sebring. This was my first ride outside the county.

I've posted an image before, but it's time for another. This is my 2008 DL650 in the wilderness of Colorado. I rode 3,000 miles round trip in seven days to camp two nights with friends in the Colorado wilderness. The Strom is pretty good on gravel. I am running a set of Metzeler Tourance--my second set. I'll buy again in a heartbeat.



See you on the highway!

Brent
