Rules

Rules


A few simple rules that benefit us all:


During the tour each client can place 1 ryanair-hand-luggage-size bag in the support truck. Everything you need that week must be able to fit IN that bag. Don’t bring any hard cases, they will get damaged due to the terrain.

We ride as one group, with safe distance between you and the rider in front of you. In that way you don’t eat dust all day and you have a clear view in what’s happening in front of you.

Keep an eye on each other. If you notice that the rider behind you is out of view; wait a moment. When he does not show up after 4 to 5 minutes turn back to where you last spotted him.

Every rider stays on the planned GPS track. This is for your own safety. Imagine you wonder off and crash… nobody knows where you are.

Respect the motorcycle you get provided as if it is your own bike; treat it with care. When the tour leader notices motorcycle abuse or he judges that a rider becomes a danger to the well being of the whole group he gives 1 warning to that person. If that person does not adapt his attitude he will be removed from the tour.

13 days tour from which 11 days off-road riding with 1 day relaxing at the beach

Starting from Ouarzazate we follow the Draa River through the southern deserts of Morocco all the way to the Atlantic coast and back through the Siroua Mountains. With its total of over 1600km this is the longest off-road tour we offer in Morocco. Daily average of riding is between 100km and 200km per day, depending on the terrain. Due to the extreme heat this tour can not be done during the summer.

Yamaha TT600Re with 42hp air-cooled engine, no electronics, easy electric starter. Guiding is done by GPS on the handle bars. Detailed track information on the screen shows you exactly where to go. All fuel is included. You can also choose to do the tour on KTM 450 EXC.

4×4 assistance truck

Depending on the group’s size one or two 4×4 service trucks follow the participants over the exact same tracks and carry on board: Mechanic/tour leader, fridge with coke and beer, fridge with food, your personal luggage, 180 litre petrol, spare-parts, tools, tyres, tubes, 12 volt compressor, water, tents, sleeping bags, inner sheets, mattresses, cooking materials, etc

Dinner Breakfast Lunch

We buy fresh vegetables and meat during the day in local villages. Where possible we have lunch in small restaurants along the track. On other places we enjoy a picnic lunch under the shade of a tree. Dinner is prepared “en group” that means we all give a hand, also with cleaning the dishes.

Bivouac

You have the benefit of our 40 years Morocco experience. Our wild-camps are carefully chosen spots next to a well or near a spring. On 2 bivouac locations we camp beside a natural pool in the desert. Both great places for a refreshing swim after a dusty ride. You’ll be provided with a Decathlon “2-seconds” tent. Easy to put up, throw it in the air and your room is there! For a comfortable night we have self-inflating mattresses. Sleeping bags with proper clean inner sheets keep you warm at night. In the morning we break up camp and after a group-prepared breakfast we head out further into the desert.

Campfire

During the day the guys in the 4×4 collect wood for the evening campfire. We all have a good time sitting together around the fire, enjoying a cold beer or coke, talking about the days ride and staring at the stars… This beats any hotel.
