Unusual trim package, but definitely a Harley V-Rod...

I have one similar in my garage

About 120km of dirtroad from East to Western part in Morocco's Anti-Atlas region. No signs of human life + one very nice bushcamp

Interesting! Just how lightly is the road used? Worst case - you have a breakdown that you can't fix about half way. That's about a two day walk for 60 km, assuming you're in decent shape. 3-4 days is more likely if you don't want blisters or aches etc. And the heat!!
You had enough supplies to last at least 4 days, I assume?

Well, you mention all the "if's" in one go. But yes, the risk of driving the pistes in Morocco are high(er) for the lonesome rider.
But as you mention aswell, I take enough water and food to last me 3 to 4 days. O, and no walking away for the bike if it breaks down (and I can not repair it myself), a (long) wait in a shady spot till a passerby finds you will do. Weird as its sounds in a deserted place like this, they will come by sooner then later

The stars at night are well worth the risks
