The rules for other required elements, food and a bridge, still apply.

25 Food points

=75 points for required elements
Well done.

I miss Spain so much. Thanks for the blast from the past. I was there in the late 80's for 4.5 years. Down in the South. We'd go up to Barcelona to beat the heat believe it or not. I wish I was a biker back then. Now that I know that you can rent nice bikes, I'm really thinking here........

Loved the quote about El Corte Ingles.....we'd have to drive up to Sevilla to shop there as it was the closest place with a decent selection of clothes. I lived in a little fishing/vacation village called Chipiona, and there wasn't anything like that for 100's of km's. Thanks for the memories.......

It was a little uncomfortable for me being caught between the two of them with the growing tension. At least I'm pretty sure there was growing tension.



One time they pulled over and I think Guzy tried to make up with Spanish Bob by getting a little too "friendly", but that probably only made things worse. That's what it looked like from where I was standing, anyway.


Yeah that Guzy fellow sucks and big time!

Last time I went for a ride with him I had to stop to throw up (not a joke). Jeez great road, two great riders (and me). The only two complaints, I dont think yellow really suits Gustavo, but then Im really into colour schemes (not) and the temperature, too damn hot! Way too damn hot.

To the girls comments, it is pure coincidence (damned incompetence) that there were no topless women in the foto. Pretty much all women do the topless thing here, its just how it is, my wife included.

Re points system - add some for lean angle, get rid of some for the next day beer face he really looks bad, drunken bum.

The next pic will give you 5 extra points, I'm soooo sorry forgot to send it


As you can see Jackhole walked almost 2 miles into the forest to keep out of our sight while peeing, he's so shy... I have to say that he was a funnier guy when I met him at El Corte Ingles

Next time he comes, after drilling my immaculate seat I'll fit a leaking fuel cell to the GS then ride about 4.000 straight miles on 10 lane highways taking only 12 hours (I think that will take us to Syberia or something) and back to Barcelona, of course we'll only take food that can be eated while riding. I'm sure he will be happy then and it could be fun!



And here's "God save the Queen" Bob about to do what he more likes to do when riding and Jackhole trying to get revenge for the awful weekend. I also have to say that I don't like Bob -he eats lots of polenta- but sometimes I love to share the ride with some good vintage motorcycle just to remember how good 21st century technology is... by the way I don't think knobbies really suit Bob



Goodbye

OK, that was a good comeback.

In all honesty, Guzy and Spanish Bob are great guys who are willing, with almost no notice, to give a visitor a guided tour of the phenomenal roads they are lucky enough to call home.

I can't wait for my next chance to ride with them, and I may try to learn some spanish before then. I might be able to follow the conversations a little better that way.

Oh, and Guzy is right about one thing. Knobbies are not suited to anybody who is trying to keep up with him. It's not really clear that any tire would help, but it is impossible on knobbies.
