I built this Troll for a tour of Morocco riding from Marrakech to M’Hamid (The last town before the Sahara Desert) We originally went out there to ride to a music festival in the Sahara but it was cancelled… Amazing ride anyway! If any of you get to do the same tour I’d thoroughly recommend a bus trip from M’Hamid up to Essaouira then a ride through Paradise Valley to the Cascades! some of the most beautiful scenery I’ve ever laid eyes on! The people of Morocco were incredibly welcoming!
