Spain Ride Report Day 7 – END

The last day of riding, we will ride from Guadalupe to Toledo and finish our trip in Madrid. The weather was bit hot, almost like riding in Jakarta, especially from Toledo to Madrid. All and all was about 2000km+ or riding. We left the bike in Madrid, and the next day we took a flight to Barcelona and return back to Jakarta.

Spain Ride Report Day 4

Spain is the mecca for motorcycle road race. The home of DORNA, REPSOL, Movistar, Telefonica, Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Sete, Checha and so forth; names that associated with top class motorcycle racing from MotoGP and WSBK. This day, the fourth day, we passed the CIRCUITO DE ALMERIA, near the city of Almeria. On the road we met fellow riders riding sport bikes, wearing full gear on the road twisting and turning on the twisty Spain’s smooth road. Trully a bikers heaven!

Spain Ride Report Day 2

 

Day 2 of riding was not so good. The weather worsen. There was storm brewing in Nothern Europe. All night we could hear the wind blowing outside the hotel. In the morning albeit a sunny and clear day the wind was still too strong for us to safely ride.

Manfred, our road captain, finally decided to change course. The original plan to ride across the mountain side to Valencia was changed. We will ride in a sea side road. The road is less twisty and much wider compare to the mountain road. Not fun at all, but for safety sake this was the road we must take.
