Thanks for sharing. A dream ride for sure.
Merci de partager cette grande aventure ! J'ai visité Morrocco et espère return(?) un jour, votre voyage est une inspiration.
I really respect folks who post here in English when it's not their primary language. It's hard to do this, yet still our friends outside the U.S. speaking world do this for us.
Thank you very much, and welcome to Advrider!
Mama mia !
That's the way I like it, Eric.

I saw you're from Ardèche. Friend of mine is living in Viviers. got a Djebel. we plan to do a small trip in the region, like from Montpellier to Viviers then towards rodez.... off road, off course.
not with heavy bikes but on 350DR, 250WRF.
could be fun to grab you on the way.
Back on your trip report, when u were in the Jaffar's, at the bottom, there is a dry river. we tried to follow it, that is going left instead of right followinf the piste.....
a nightmare. it was like quicksand.... with +200kgs bikes.....
but what a laugh we had !
I'm not from Ardeche, that's my friend, I'm from Gers ( close to Toulouse).
At the bottom of Jaffar we took also a track on the left, like a canyon, we followed it a bit, befor return, It's true there was lot of stones
I readed your report, I'm not sure I should be able to drive on those track with a 1200GS, it's really courageous. I've got also a 650GS too heavy
Thanks for sharing, what's the story behind that area, any info?
Great write-up. I thought some of the scenary was looking familiar...
Whilst the 1200GSA is brilliant for some parts of the trip--I did over 955 miles/1530km yesterday--a lighter bike would be a distinct advantage on some pistes.
You're correct, especially for the roads in Morocco but heavier bikes are also needed for long distances, both have advantages and disadvantages,what was the weight of 1200GSA?
The bike, fully fueled, with two loaded panniers, two external pannier bags, rear 90-litre luggage roll, tank bag, accessories, plus heavy rider wearing several layers of clothing, motocross boots, helmet... Not much short of 500kg I should think!
Merci. Thanks for sharing!
I read your report, fine. As I wrote to kktos I think, those tracks with a 1200GS and more alone, I should not be able to do it. Respect.
When you cross at Tillouguite, was the bridge in place ??.
Thanks for posting
Great report! Thanks!!
You could enter this in a phot contest. Fantastic!
Since I have had some request for the track, I putit here.
I've got also a lot of GIS stuff for Morocco, map tracks waypoints etc...
I can share without problem, ask.
