Howdy fellow Adventure Riders, This October, for two weeks, my wife and I are renting a BMW R1200 RT, one-way from Bilbao to Barcelona Spain. I plan on riding the Pyrenees on both sides of the border, and it is highly likely I'll visit a friend in Alicante Spain. I'd really appreciate any input on a route, especially for the dip down south, as far as beautiful small towns, national parks, and any of your favorite routes . I plan on avoiding toll roads, and being in the country as much as possible, seeking great scenery, lots of local flavor, good food and wine. Any tips as far as riding gear, concerning the climate change from the Pyrenees to Southern Spain are welcome too! Cheers and thank you!
