"Bilbao, close to the fu****ng Guggenheim" - yeah but the tourists will drop to bugger all once the P&O ferry stops in September so you'll be able to walk round without a bunch of idiots with 4 hours ashore trying to drink Bilbao dry!!! I use the ferry to get to N Spain, but the typical "cruiser" is frankly better off been thrown over the side in the Bay of Biscay!!

Have you got any links to trials near Bilbao, as we are heading over to the Pyrenees once we get off this year, but it'd be nice to do some trials first? Perhaps we should do this via PM?

cheers

Markie

When I look to some photo's of ABS versions of the Adv with their riders on it.
It seems like the rear suspension really suffers from weight? I know it is because it isnt set as high as the R version. But how does the riding perform with that? Will you notice it during the rides?
