All righty!! Tomorrow (March 20th 2008) I’m off to Spain for a 2,200KM bike tour with several friends from Indonesia. We will ride from Barcelona to Valencia to Cordoba and to Madrid.

As this is an “official” BMW partner tour, all of us will ride BMW motorcycle through out the tour. From GS to RT range. Some will ride the R1200RT with pillion, some with R1200GS, and F800ST.
As for me I will ride the R1200RT. Niiiceee!!
As the writing of this post I still need to do some more packing. We need to have all of our belonging on the side and top box of the bikes as there will be no “service car” following us. So smart packing is a must with no hard case bag as it will not fit the side or top box.
Also considering the temperature this time of year, Spain is still bit chilly for us coming from the tropics. Riding jackets, pants, boot, glove all need to be prepared to suite the riding temperature in Spain. Full face helmet with clear visor is also mandatory for this tour.
I will definately taking tons of picture and video for this trip. I will also try to post some of them while in Spain if possible. So stay tune!!
