    Requirements:

    · Able to withstand stress

    · Willingness to travel without much comfort

    I am looking for a rider with similar interests who wants to accompany me between 14.08. and 24.10. (partially possible). It will be a typical minimalistic journey. Therefore I will use my Suzuki DR 350 and only carry few luggage. Most nights will be spent in a tent in order to make it a cheap holiday.

    I will start in Germany (Regensburg) and ride relatively quick through Europe until the ferry in Spain.

    The route in Morocco is not selected yet but I want to visit the family of my friend in Marrakesh. The rest of the route should lead us to remote places (East) and due to the weather to the mountains. I am open for your suggestions ;)

    About me:
    I love nature.
    I am Bavarian, 22 years old and study Projectengineering. I started to ride a motorcycle 6 years ago. I discovered the best way of travelling 2013 when I did a trip with a Honda XR in the Philippines. In 2015 I bought a DR and started to learn riding offroad. My first bigger offroad trip was in the Pyrenees in summer 2016: IMG_20160905_145255.jpg

    The setup will be similiar to this.

    If you are interested we can have a call (WhatsApp: +49 17665347002) to get to know each other and to clarify where/when to meet.

    Feel free to ask questions :)

    P.S.: On this adventure alcohol is forbidden.

    Being old is no problem at all. Fat...: You still have half a year ;)

    "I am looking for a rider with similar interests".
    If the interests are too different it will cause problems...

    I'm not being critical (different strokes for different folks etc.) but wouldn't it have been better just to have asked for a riding partner and then make compromises rather than than demands, such as forbidden? I've ridden with some (not many!) bikers that are teetotal and smoke, I drink but don't smoke so they've compromised by not smoking "in my face" - no problems. It will only cause problems if you want it to, and wouldn't it be more interesting to ride with someone that has different interests than you, it would be rather boring if everybody agreed with everyone else? There is always the trip were you don't have to compromise and you can do everything YOU want and that is to ride solo!
