Great RR and so keen to get to Morocco!
From the Atlas back into the Rif mountains. After days in the sandy desert and snowy High Atlas (faintly visible in the background), the Rif Mountains felt like paradise. Warm and humid air from the mediterranean makes for rich and green vegetation.
On my way to the port of Tanger, I stopped in the town of Chefchaouen, famous for its white and blue houses.
I had some hours to kill before my ferry left in the evening and there was market day, so I strolled the market and made use of all the photographic opportunities it offered.
And yes, the oranges were delicious.
Nighttime pic of the day: Port of Tangier and my ferry. Border formalities and ferry check-in were quick and painless, ending the voyage around Morocco.
Thanks to everyone, who followed along despite the occasional long pause between episodes (I apologize). It has been a pleasure to share the story (or rather collection of photographs with captions) with you.
Crossing the Alps on the way from Genoa to Zürich, your humble camera operator signing off.
Outstanding! I continue to be intrigued by Morocco.
Loved this RR!! I experienced Morocco in '16 - brought back some great memories. Thanks for sharing your ride and the beautiful photography!
Excellent, enjoyed both reading and seeing the pics. Grazie, amico!
Lovely. One of these years I'll retire to Spain with my XR650R and spend every holiday in Morocco. Were you ever tempted to take a lighter bike and spend some time in the dunes?
Of course, I'd have loved to play in the dunes, but the Tenere is the only bike I had available and it's just to heavy for soft sand and my skill level.
Thanks, your RR enabled me to see parts of a country I have never visited and your night time photography is outstanding.
Your RR and photography are inspiring! I will be in Marrakech for a week over New Years and hope to get a chance to venture out of the city to visit some of the smaller towns in the area.
Awesome stuff! Heading to Morocco and down to Cape Town from Slovenia after New Years, didn't know about the ferry from Genoa! And great night shots! Thanks :)
Absolutely, the Atlas is just south of Marrakesh and day tours are easily doable.
Sounds like an awesome journey, are you going to write something? The rest of Africa intrigues me as well. Anyway, enjoy and ride safe!
As much as I'd like to do a RR on advrider, by the time we post to the Moto Migrants Facebook and Instagram page, I could give a shit about doing it here (sadly). We update every couple days and when we did South America early this year it just became exhausting, I sort through 100+ photos, my wife writes some really good text and then it takes 30min to upload because of slow wifi and then you just want to enjoy the evening with beer/wine/food and not sit in front of the laptop. Plus its easier for other friends and family to see :)
Absolutely fabulous @Huffduff
Greetings from NZ!
So, @Huffduff, one thing I've always been curious about is how it works with fuel in the more remote parts? I assume there aren't gas stations every 50 km... Do you carry fuel on the bike or is there other ways of refueling in the villages?
Yeah, it does take some time to do writeups, and I don't have that kind of time during trips neither.
Thanks and greetings from Switzerland
No problem with the Tenere, the 23L tank makes for a range of 450km. But even witth a range of 150km and some planning you should not have a problem, seldomly there were stretches of 50 or more km without a petrol station.
Very enjoyable, I spread it over the weekend. Thanks for an excellent write up and great photographs.
Beautiful pictures...thanks for taking us along..
Thanks, I'm glad you liked it.
Thanks to the reporting delay, I just read this fine report, was two times in Morocco. Nice star picture, I remember my poor tries in New Zealand.
