    Hello locals of Portugal. I am coming over for a visit to Portugal in a couple of weeks. I am looking at renting a motorcycle there and go see some nice stuff and drink good wine.:freaky. Any recommendations in terms of places to stay and see and where to rent motorcycles would be appreciated. Please PM me. Thanks to the contributors to this thread I'm hooked.:clap

    Hi,

    Last year I went to the Boom festival in portugal on bike from Belgium and afterwards I travelled to monsanto, Coimbra and Porto, where I had some starting problems. That took a few days so I had to go straight home from Porto. I enjoyed the trip very much. Next year I'll go back to Boom and hope to see more of the country.

    Great bikes, and nice pics!

    I wish you lived a bit more to the south, as I would gladly participate in all those trips (and take the dslr :evil). Here not one single motorcyclist want to take any kind of trip that takes them further away than the nearest cafe or bar.

    One sugestion: some of your photos would look great with a fake hdr-ish effect, to bring up the darkest areas. There is a great thread about it here.

    Let me know if you ever come to the Santarém area :freaky

    Where is Karbono ?

    This is a great thread depicting some fantastic riding and stunning scenery. Just need to add some food pictures, doesn't get any better than a good feijoada or bacalhau à brás.

    Rock on !
