Pictures along the way.

I have been getting pictures on facebook and in the email from people I have randomly met along the way.


On the Italian/French boarder from a guy named Friedrich.


In northern Italy. You should see the girl behind the camera.


Working on the moto in western Portugal wine country last week.


My ex 690.. the 2010. Peter Bookey (the guy I rode around Ireland with) has cleaned her up nicely and given her a new look. No more snow camo.

WRC Espainia and Mi Couplianos!

Nov. 8 Manvilla Spain to Manzanares Spain. 478 km.
I was still riding with Craig and Adam from Morocco. The other guys were still in Morocco because the weather wouldn't let the Ferries cross. We lucked out and were on the last ferry the night before. Craig needed to get his Triumph running right and I desperately needed to change the oil in the KTM. Malaga just so happened to have a KTM shop and a Triumph shop. By 1:00 we were back on the road heading north. We made it to Manzanares about the time it started to get dark.


Oil change on the sidewalk outside this KTM shop.


KTM makes peddle bikes also.



Nov. 9 Manzanares to Vinebre Spain. 553 km.
I split up with Craig and Adam and went east toward Barcelona. Long day. Just trying to cover ground to get to the WRC rally. November 9 was the first day of 3 for the rally. It was the only day with dirt stages so I missed those unfortunately. 21 Euro for a small private room and a garage for the moto at a hostel in Vinebre. They even had great food and cervesa.

Nov. 10 and Nov. 11 WRC Rally Espainia
I was up with the sun to get on the bike and get to a good viewpoint. Having a moto means you can take tracks to the side if the rally that most people cant. Saves you from walking a long distance. Thorough prior planning is necessary and will save you lots of time getting to a good vantage point. I took 1600 photos. About 50 of them were good enough to post.

Here are a few of them. For the whole album (55 total) go here






Chris Patterson checking out my KTM. Apparently he has a 640adv. He is Petter Solberg's codriver and we chatted for a while about Morocco and Dakar.


WRC champions for the pas 7? years...









Nov. 12 Vinebre Spain to Asson France. 337 km
Before Morocco I left all my camping stuff and warm cloths at Keith's house. So after leaving the rally I went north back into France. On the Spanish side of the Pyrenees mountains it was warm and sunny. When I went through the tunnel to the French side there was snow on the ground. It was a cold ride to Kieth's house without my warm under layers.


Neat rock layers.






On the Spanish side. Looks cold up there.


French side





Nov. 13. Asson France
Took all day to share photos with Kieth and try to get caught up on blogs and such

Nov. 14 Asson France to Comillas Spain. 432 km
Nice sunny day. I left Keith's house and did motorway most of the way to Comillas Spain. About 1/2 way to Vigo Spain. I wanted to make it to Vigo for my birthday.

Nov. 15 Comillas to Vigo. 521km
My 29th Birthday! First one out of the US. I had a nice ride to Vigo along the northern coast and through some mountains in northern Spain. I like traveling in Spain because I can speak (some) Spanish. I made it into Vigo just before the sun went down. There was a huge protest for the banks in the streets. It was very loud and crazy. I found some good live music that night at a local bar.


Snow









Nov. 16, 17 Vigo Spain.
I spent the weekend celebrating my birthday. I met some good people and had some good times. I don't like to bring my camera out when I "tie one on". Unfortunately thats about all I did in Vigo. I also got a hair cut.

Happy Belated, Noah.

Sounds like it's one you'll always remember.

(well, IF you can remember the actual night, that is).

Awesome!!

Awesome RR! I found it a couple of days ago but i'm now up to date! You've really inspired me to take my Katoom out for a longer spin. I'm thinking either Morocco or maybe Iceland this summer! Keep those pictures coming and good luck!
