Your safety is an extremely important issue to us and one that we have spent a lot of time and money investigating, to enable us to offer you the best possible service.
We are unique in that we install, FREE of charge, a GPS on your bike during any of our tours with us. On all our tours off road our support vehicle has a permanent satellite phone link, GPS, a comprehensive professional medical kit, including defibrillator, vacuum splints and even oxygen, a compressor and a fridge to mention the most important.
On both our off road and adventure bike tours we use the robust Garmin Montana 600 with wide colour screens and 10,000 track points, and have one available for each bike with a track point every 25 meters giving peace of mind and security.
All you have to do is keep the arrow on the magenta coloured line.
Each morning we switch to that days track. This has made things more interesting for you, the riders, as we can run our tours reasonably freely, allowing the faster bikers to lead and several smaller groups to be operating at their own comfortable speed between them and the support vehicle which is always following not far behind. Regular regrouping points are made.
Having the GPS also allows riders to drop back and stay out of each other’s dust.
We regularly update and check our Moroccan routes before the beginning of each season as Morocco is continually putting down asphalt somewhere, as well as searching out new tracks and trails so that our repeat clients can experience new places, but they are getting progressively more scarce.
We have two satellite phones as part of our safety measures.
On our off-road tours one of the satellite telephones is installed in our support vehicle – meaning a permanent connection is available should it be needed regardless of where we are.
The other is carried by a biker within the group so that a connection can be made with the support vehicle any time mobile coverage is not available.
SUPPORT & BACK-UP VEHICLES
When out on our KTM offroad tours, Hussein our mechanic always travels in the support vehicle. We have a Fiat-Fullback adapted to be able to carry a bike should it be necessary. It is fully equipped with our medical equipment – such as vacuum stretcher, defibrillator, splints and oxygen, a very extensive first aid box, a fridge, compressor, tools & spare parts for the bikes. We would use a Toyota if we needed a people carrier.
On our new BMW tours our fully equipped assistance vehicle will provide support for the riders, carry the 4×4 passengers, and also any pillion wanting some time off their bike.
