    Hoping for some help/information.
    Will be riding my bike to Marrakesh from Valencia arriving in Marrakesh on the 14th of May.
    My daughter is flying in on the 15th and rather than touring 2 up I will be renting a jeep until the 20th. Can anyone suggest a safe place to store it? A motel or bike shop or even a rental place that it will be secure for 5 or 6 days? Not looking for a freebie just want it to still be there when I return as I will still have 2 weeks of riding to do after she leaves.
    Thanks in advance for any help! IMG_20171014_124509.jpg

    You could try getting in touch with Peter Gray at Wilderness Wheels Morocco- he's based out of Ouarzazate but may have some suggestions or connections in Marrakech.

    Unfortunately they did not reply, will just have to check with motels/car rentals for storage availability when I arrive in Marrakesh

    Try Loc2roues.com rental agency in Gueliz (near the MacDonalds).
    I've been working with them for years.
    I'm sure they'd let you store your bike in their deep basement lockup for a small tip.
