We have in Spain very good road, but I think too much highway in you travel.


Interesting places you forget: Leon, Avila, Granada, Valencia...

León:


Avila:


Alambra in Granada (you must see this, is necessary previous reservation!)


"Ciudad de las Ciencias" in Valencia:


You can see in wikiloc.com good motorcycle roads to enjoy. There are a lot of interesting local roads to travel in bike everywhere.

evrything from temperatures to restaurant to go !!
Ok, as said before, there is a lot of higway on your trip, not necessary, lot of backroads to ride same places, I' try to help:

Route:

As per you plan, I see some big cities as Zaragoza or Madrid. I do not recommend you to visit these cities in August, too hot and not really big interest, as many of the people is on the beach, only tourists. The Highway between Zaragoza and Madrid is booooooring, and so is that from Madrid to Cordoba.

As I see, you get into Spain trough Huesca, A good plan should be from Huesca to Pamplona, then Soria, Segovia, Avila, Salamanca, Caceres and then continue to Portugal.

Andalucia is very pretty, and has the real "Spanish Taste" but, belive me, you do not want to go to Seville, Cordoba or Jaen in August with your biking gear on. If you como from Toulosse, you are not far, so you can come any other time.

About the northern part of your trip, I am afraid I cannot tell you a lot, only that you get a good rain cover and enjoy their food and landscapes.

Food:

Tipycall thta I can recomend: Lamb from Aragon (So called ternasco) or Castilla, wines from Castilla (Ribera del Duero) or Rioja, Cochinillo in Segovia (Baby pork), Chuletón de Ternera blanca from Avila (beef steak), fish, seafood and octopuss in Galicia, pintxos in Vasc Country, cider and parruches in Asturias.

Place to stay,

I always go to camping when on motorbike and to mid range hotels when on family, so not much advice for this type of trip. Look for HOSTAL signs if yours is a budget trip when on cities. On villages Alojamiento Rural is a good option.

I hope this can help you if you need further information, just ask. When you have more details about your scales, I am sure more people can give you some tips.

Have a nice trip and enjoy our country

Visit this link, http://www.bmwmotos.com/foro/showthr...-¿está-tu-ruta

the translation is "Tail of the Drangon routes in Spain". it is a compilation of the best motorable roads in our country. Although it is in Spanish, you can get some road data, It might help you to decide your route schedule.

Chao, keep rubber side down

Hi fellow inmates!

Swedish lurker here, joined as I'm travelling to Barcelona for work in early September and I'm planning on staying another week for riding. My plan is to rent a bike for a few days and see the Pyrenees, any tips on must-see locations?

Thanks!

I didn't know ir before, but if you check other inmate's post, rental shops do not rent gear. So bring your own helmet.

About tips, all the pirenees are good for biking. Interesting places are ainsa, vall de bohi or ordesa

From Barcelona and if you stay one more week, you can cross all Pyrenees and come back from San Sebastian for highway or make an route through France and Spain until Jaca and regret To Barcelona the last day for Huesca, Zaragoza and Lerida around 500 km. All Pyrennes of Girona and Lerida is more interesting.

Abraxas tu tambien dando mal por aqui

Hi, neighbours!

I'm Javier and I live in Soria. My current motorcycle is a Yamaha XT660Z Ténéré and it works very fine. I'm very pleased to be here and share with you some of my favourite pics.

For example, aunt and niece trying to reach for the sky. The XTZ is 20 years old and the XT-Z is only 2 months old.

There are very few pics here, let's improve that!

Do you like uninhabitated villages?

Oh, I'm sorry! The guy in the picture it's me!

I thought you had come with us in that ride through the Pyrenees. There were lots of V-Stroms there.

I suppose I know you from the www.vstromclub.es forum. I've not entered there for ages!
