I encountered no street handling issues.

Regarding that incident, another rider had sent an email prior to the accident describing a harrowing incident he had with the bike's handling.
Locally, the two models they had here were sold quick but owners couldn't take delivery until parts came in to rectify a "problem" and details were scant.

Fantastic! How long you 'gonna be?

I was in Barcelona in 97, still chasing the elusive sangria and paella as good as I had there but I don't think it exists.

I remember a sense of welcoming, I'd been to a few other countries in Europe leading up Barcelona communicating by miming so being able to speak Spanish felt great.

Tricewife wanted a boat ride to the port @ Barcelona, so she gets it.

Here's the itinerary:



Starts and ends in Marseille. Flying in and out of Paris, taking the TGV bullet train both ways to/from the coast.

Woody Allen did a movie in '08 called Vicky Cristina Barcelona. That movie made we want to go to Barcelona.

I'm partial to Cristina, a.k.a. Scarlett Johansson



There are lots of motorcycling options out of Barcelona.

While there, I'm stopping by these guys:

IMTBike

They have an operation out of Barcelona and are very well regarded.

Mexico and Spain have a closely shared history. Might as well ride both countries

Color me envious.

You're doing it right with the cruise ship, you always have a place to stay without having to lug luggage around. That was the biggest pain when I did my Europe trip.

Pics will be needed
