Hey guys

It's good to see how many fellow "paisanos" there are around here

I've been in the forum for about a year but I've never seen this thread before, I'll be sure to check it out more often from now on.

I was born in Australia but I've lived in Spain for most of my life (my mother's Aussie and my father's Spanish). I've lived in Madrid for the last two years and now I'm in Menorca on holidays/figuring out what to do next (just quit my job, etc). I brought my Wee of course


Hey Nanin, don't tell me you're half-Australian too? That's cool! I don't get to go there much, just the occasional holiday whenever I can, but I sure miss it.


This is me on my Wee somewhere in Menorca





ps: anyone from the Spanish V-Strom forum around here?

My Case, I am Canadian born Canadian- Swiss dual citizen who now lives in Barcelona. On a whim I bought my dream bike, an Africa Twin as a gift to myself on my 30th. Sound decision. I didn't think too much about the details as the bike was bought here and originally registered here, but;
it turns out my Canadian motorcycle rating is not accepted for INSURING a bike in Spain, riding yes INSURING no. The Canadian CAR licence can be convalidated, or transfered over to a Spanish equivalent with a minimum of hassle.
The Canuck bike rating though, is not good enough for Spain, you have to redo the licence process which means riding a maximum of some 25 horsepower for 2 years. As much as it pissed me off at the time I can almost understand it now; I got my Canadian bike rating in about 20 minutes at the Motor Vehicle Branch parking lot in Vancouver, on a 90 cubic inch Harley that wasn't mine.
My only solution: I went to Switzerland where thank God my mother has retired, registered myself as a resident which I am entitled to do as I have the passport, filled out the forms, stood the line, smoothed the clerks, got the stamps, made the photocopies, signed the dotted lines and was taken back into the fold with Swiss efficiency, made a legal resident of my ancestral homeland.
From there I went to the traffic authority, aka the Strassenverkhersamt (that's really what it's called) and was subjected to more formalities to be able to surrender my Canadian licence to them. The Swiss, unlike the Spanish, honour and accept our Canadian bike ratings as worthy of their roads. Turn in your valid Canuck licence and get a Swiss equivalent in a matter of a few weeks, service only valid for registered residents with stamped, signed and photocopied in triplicate residency papers.
The chipper, professional young clerk (I didn't know such a thing existed) eyed my peeling, dog-eared and generally battle weary old licence with polite disdain.
This all took two days.

A few weeks went by and finally an official looking letter arrived to my mother's house. Unfortunately it was not from the Strassenverhersamt but rather from the Swiss Police's forgery investigation bureau. It turns out my battered old licence has been sent in as suspicious and inspected, scanned, magnified, put under special lights and subjected to all manner of indignity. The final verdict was "traces of possible manipulation or forgery to document, application denied". One third or half of the last number of my birthdate was faded or chafed, only by looking at the bottom half could you see that it in fact was a 5. I called the office and was able to talk to the corresponding officer, explained that this was just the result of 4 years, countless kilometers, untold cycles through the washer and a few accidental falls in the water. I had numerous other pieces of identification I was willing to present myself with, including a valid Swiss passport, a valid Canadian passport, Canadian birth certificate, social insurance card, a German driver's licence (also car only rated) and pictures of myself as a newborn in the babyseat in a shiny new 1975 Volvo station wagon. All featured the same bithdate. If any of these showed any trace of forgery I would surrender myself immediately and without protest for incarceration. I got not even a laugh. Swiss bureaucracy is efficient, it is thorough and swift, to the maximum extent that such bodies can be, it is not however, flexible, not at all. I was told that my suspicious, unholy document would be returned to the Strassenverkersamt, please could I come remove it at once.
As I was already back in Spain at the time I asked my mother to please do me the favour and pick it up. When my chipper, friendly 68 year old mother went to the SVA the next day she was attended by a friendly, professional clerk only a few years years her junior.
"They say my son is a forger" said my mom "but he's not, he's just a bit careless, no matter how many times I told him to check his pockets before washing his pants he always forgets something in them, he was like this at 12, now he is 30, I fear he will not change, but he is not a forger, he is a good boy, this licence is just very, very clean"
"clearly" answered the clerk, and 2 weeks later I received my shiny new motorcycle-rated, Spanish valid, certified Swiss driver's licence.
That was 3 years ago, and I have been riding every day since.
Wow, sounds like me but the other way around......easier!!
