    I'm guessing that knife was made on the island of Corsica?
    Every man and his dog has one similar to that over there.

    Nice ride report.
    Moroc always looks intriguing.
    Or is it the lure of Africa?

    Your report is simply too good; too may wants to see it. And now, none of the images shows up any more because the bandwidth is exceeded.

    Write less interesting reports, poorer images, go to The Netherlands, and you'll be OK.

    I spent 4+ weeks in Morocco in a VW van many years ago. Visited many of the places you mentioned. BUT I CAN'T SEE THEM. Do you have them public on your PB site and can they be viewed there?
    thanks,

    Great Report! How about some thoughts on how the new F800GS performed on the adventure since that is the name of the thread.

    I see it is not yet finished. Come on man, now is a good time to get it going again, between one glass of wine and another.
