Last chance to pose in the Jemma el-Fnaa before taking the bikes back
Glad I brought my waterproof boots. Apart from bringing my helmet and gloves, other clothing was not motorcycle specific: anorak, fleece, jeans...
Day 6 in Marrakech. The old city has hardly changed since I first visited in 1986. But according to this billboard there are plans to knock down some of the ancient souks and replace them with new shopping malls.
No donkeys in the artist's impression!
So get to Morocco soon...
I must say I have enjoyed your ride reports....past and present!
thanks, great report. Makes me think about going there
I read the whole thing. Kept my attention. When you were in the hotel as the only guests, was it a little unnerving? I would think it would feel at least a little worried
willibauer thanks, great report. Makes me think about going there
Thanks for your comment. I'm already planning to go back next year. You can enjoy visiting Morocco on any type of motorbike (or any other way)!

Thanks - yes it was a bit weird staying in the huge old Kasbah but it did have electricity and running water. I slept really well. It was called 'Kasbah Caid Ali' (in Agdz). I hope they can get money to renovate because it's a beautiful place. You can camp there as well.
Other road users are the main hazard. 99% of the bikes in Morocco are 50cc to 90cc and keep to the edge of the road. So when you are cruising along in traffic, cars will pull alongside you and try to usher you back into your place. It's not malicious but it is annoying!
Outstanding pics....thanks for taking the time!
Really enjoyed that Will, great info for future reference. I have a friend living in Marrakesh, who runs a sidecar tour company, so it is on my agenda for next year.
Great RR! Long time since I was there backpacking in ‘91. It’s a shame lots of pistes are getting a makeover. It would be a great country to see from the saddle of a cruiser, Royal Enfield or similar road bike.
Great report! Thanks
Yes, shame about the rapid tarmacking but at least you can see how rural communities could benefit. Demolishing the old souks in Marrakech and replacing them with new shopping malls would be terrible.
Thanks - two wheels would be best IMO but a sidecar could be fun
Yep that was Morocco!
Just curious if the bike rental company charged you for all the little things that went wrong with the bike? Liked you first report very much as well.
Thanks - there was a 500 Euro deposit on each bike which was returned to us. It cost 100 Euros for the fuel cap, broken clutch lever and broken mirror mount.
Great trip. What time of year was it?
Getting excited about April trip to Morocco, in company with several friends. All riding Enfields. Will be mostly on tarmac due to carrying passenger.
