Hows this for forward planning. Very Happy Taking the KLR to Morocco in September next year (subject to when Ramadan falls) using ferry from Portsmouth or Plymouth to Santander, then through Spain to Algeciras and the ferry to Tanger. Wink
As there is some forward planning required for paperwork and vaccinations Shocked , i thought i'd mention it now to see if anyone would be interested. Trip will definately involve gravel or sand roads at some point ie Western Sahara Cool
Would be for two weeks in total, with a full week in Morocco, totally independant with nothing pre-booked other than ferries........ Very Happy

Anyone else fancy an adventure ? happy biker

Not trying to pi$$ on your chips, but being realistic.

Point taken. Smile Hence the reason nothing being booked, see what is 'do'able on arrival.......it'll be an adventure just to be there. Cool

Look forward to the kebab's btw.

Cheers Tusky. Will definately check them out........it's the same site featured in my first post regarding travel info for Morocco.

Have also checked out ferry prices to Northern Spain from Portsmouth....
One rider with bike, 2-berth outside cabin for 24 hour crossing....475 (Sept 2011.) Not too bad considering alternative is ferry to France, 2 nights extra accom. fuel for two more days of travelling.etc. Wink

Nothing as yet other than it's still on. Very Happy Dates in September '12 after Ramadan. I'll be heading up to the HU travellers meeting at Ripley, Derbyshire in June this year, to gather more info. Cool. Will keep you posted.
