    Went to Spain for 10 days, Plymouth to Santander (Rtn) stayed in Ainsa and rode out from there, used best biking roads for some ideas but to be honest-all the roads around there are pretty awesome! Got a cheeky €50 on the spot speeding fine - but the coppers were pretty cool!
    Low point was when out heading for Argeles Gazost, I got overtaken by a GS, (not being happy with that) I went for it, chased him for all I was worth, I struggled to keep up with him for about 10km, then after he passed a car before a sharp bend, I lost him... I was gutted, no, devastated that I had my arse handed to me by a fekkin GS!! Anyway, I spotted him a few KM later, tried to chase him again, then he stopped at a Cafe! I parked up next to him and was soooo relieved to see it was a Multi 1260 Enduro with the big square metal panniers fitted!! :joy::joy:
    Anyway, he introduced himself and after a quick chat, he worked for Ducati Spain and was planning a route for a ride out! He also described himself as a very very fast rider (after I confessed that I couldn't stick with him) He then said I rode very well considering I had a pillion! :grinning:
    So, apart from the speeding ticket, the sound thrashing, my lights packing up and my lack of total trust in suspension............ it was a greta trip!!:cool:
    Just ordered a set of Maxxis Sport touring tyres for £125! I have their sports tyres on my track bike and they're bloody fantastic-I'll let you know how I get on with them....

  3. Love the Pyrenees and probably 1 of the best places to use as a base is Ainsa, can’t wait for my next trip there
    This picture was taken on the roads up to the tunnel that brings you out on the french side

  4. Sounds like a good trip. Have done the Pyrenees a couple of times and the Picos once. Next time will probably be heading further south. Spain is great for biking and in general, currently sitting in Seville airport waiting for a plane home from a weekend away.
     
  5. Sounds like you had a good time:upyeah: Can't wait to get back there.
     
  6. Nice one, seems ages ago since I was there even though it was less than a month. We went on a road from up there to Huesca, through a gorge with huge figures in hunting poses, bows n arrers etc and the epicness of the mountains was breath taking. Probably the most scenic road I've ever ridden.

  11. I don't recall a road like that myself - can you narrow it down?
     
  12. Wish I could. I’ll have a proper look later on a pooter.

  15. The coast rd from Lloret de Mar to San Feliu is fantastic. Hardly any traffic with plenty of hairpins.

  20. Never mind all the chat about the best roads and the Multi(s)...how did the RS perform? ;)
    p.s. I loved the Pyrenees and would struggle to choose between them and the Picos, but if I had to I'd say the roads were possibly better maintained in the Pyrenees.
