    Touring Morocco
    « on: 2014-09-15 22:27:28 »
    Anyone tried taking a K1600 on tour to Morocco in North Africa?

    I see there are quite a few tours going that way but most of the bikes going seem to be GS's or similar.

    It looks a fascinating country and I would like to go on my own bike really.

    Are there enough quality roads to get around on a tourer?

      Two lads I know went there last year.  One on a GSA, the other on a ST1300 Pan.


      Can be done, they had no issues as far as I'm aware

        I went to Morocco in 2011, I chopped my 1200 GT in for a TU model GS, one of my companions was on an 1800 Wing, no problems at all. One of the guys tried the GS on sand and mde it for about 2 yards before it became buried! we all had to heave it back on the road. The roads over there are mostly first rate. Keep away from trucks with cattle on the roof though. A 1600 will be fine.
