Northern Spain
on: October 01, 2015, 02:53:01 PM
Recently back from my 3rd foray into Spain on a bike, just had 15 days on some of Spain's finest roads  :002:
This year riding my new to me 11 runner, what a great all-round bike this is, comfy all day to ride and pretty nippy too.
If you are thinking of Touring Spanish traffic free roads then go for it, as the attached short vid link shows, most roads are seriously good fun.
Vid is from the LU530 near a small village called Paradavella in Glaicia the LU road designation means the road is in the Lugo province, apologies for the 2 slow overtakes but at 60 years old I'm not wanting to come off cause it hurts more when you get older. :016:

Fab. just love those Spanish roads. Got my X new in '11 and 56K later still love it.
A couple of tips from another oldie if you don't mind,
1. Fit a Scottoiler soonest
2. Biggest fine/points loss in Euroland is for crossing white lines/jumping red lights. By comparison speeding is much less serious.
Keep 'em coming

Bike was an ex demo with 600 on the clock. It came with,
full luggage
heated grips
centre stand
tall screen
tank protector
Scottoiler touring kit
and we had rubber touring pillion footrests fitted from another Honda but don't know which.
Otherwise standard.
All the above is a clear indication of my age my wife assures me. The other is an R1200RTSE. Just can't seem to get those boxers out of my system.
