    Morocco motorcycle rentals?

    Hi All,

    I may be in Morocco in January for about a week, and was wondering if anyone has had any experience renting BMW motorcycles there, and if so, can you recommend (or warn away from) a moto-rental company?

    I don't want to do an organized tour, but just would like to rent a bike - maybe a 1200GS - from Marrakesh for a few days to tour around on my own.

    Thanks!

    No experience, but this may help.

    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance

    Yeah, already booked a 1200GS rental with Palm Road. Scott Moreno at IMTBike in Spain connected me with Palm Road.
    I will let you all know how it goes after I get back!

    Hi All,

    So, I did a 4-day solo motorcycle trip from Marrakech, south through amazingly twisty mountain roads, and then through the rocky desert south of the Atlas mountains - and east almost all the way to the Algerian border (and amazing sand dunes). And then north a bit to loop back through more rocky desert, small towns, amazing gorges, etc., and then a different twisty mountain road back to Marrakech.

    I ended up renting an F800GS with top case and panniers from Reda Jabri at Palm Road in Marrakech;

    Reda and his staff were incredible. The bike was in great shape, and Reda helped me plan the route, and also suggested hotels and B&Bs to stay in. He knew when I'd likely be tired, etc. He was the ultimate fixer in Morocco.

    Anyway, I have many other details if anyone is interested. His business is mainly to take large moto-tour groups all around Morocco. But I wanted to go it alone, and he was really helpful in making it happen.

    Feel free to contact me off-list if you have questions or want more info.
