Thurs part 1: Nerves are jangling...waiting for parts is like Xmas as a kid, hoping for a bmx but worried its going to socks!!!

Part 2: An hour later and tentative test ride and it looks like we've solved the clutch problem! Thanks Rory for sourcing and shipping the oil!

Part 3: Ok, so we're back on the road, we drop by Ali Babas to say thank for all his help (yesterday he drive us around town again in his own time picking up bits and prices and showing me where to get my phone unblocked). See picture of Ali!

We drove out of agadir at 1pm in pouring rain, couldn't believe it but didnt care! So ecstatic to be back on the road, I was singing at the top of my lungs! It was awesome (the singing) if anyone want a rendition some time just ask...

It was a tough but amazing ride, sand storms and winds that makes you feel like you weigh nothing, at 140 that's pretty scary!

We road down the coast which has rocky cliffs to the west dropping vertically into the atlantic just 20 metres from the road, sand dunes and salt flats to the east. Desperately want to have a go but since I'm still sensitive about the clutch I give it a miss...gutted! Driving through the desert with the sun setting was amazing!

Part 4: We aimed for tarfaya to clear 560km by sunset! We arrived at dark and took the first place available. The auberge is a dump, smells of sweat, a poo in the toilet and no hot water but I couldn't be happier!

Part5: haha the motel owner lets us keep the bikes inside the restaurant for the night, with our dinner!
