Morocco 🇲🇦 Trip

Gon Castro

Recommended Posts

Hi, just arrived from Morocco. It was a Great ride of 5.400 kilometers (3.375 miles) with my Tenere 700. I rode the trip with my 25 years old nephew, he rode a classic R1150GS.

Bike was ok, but the ABS light tuned on some times and I had to stop and start the engine to clear off. I used Mosko Moto soft bags, and I'm happy with this bags. I tested before the Lone Rider and Mosko is much more quality.

The ride was 13 days.



The mountain is Argelia, the wall separate both countries.



Old constructions of Morocco.



This place is called "Portuguese Jail". Amazing views.



I entry for a few kilometers in Western Sahara.

Looks like a great trip! Did the T7 had an ABS issue or the older GS?
