    Hi you all. I have been riding in many countries in America , Europe and Australia . most of the time solo .. its time that I ride along with an other rider... I been in a some tours with other bikers, it was a lot of fun but it costs to much money. .I am in Mexico right now but will be flying back to Barcelona were my bike is as soon as the weather permits . I can ride and met any one whom may be interested, we can start in Andalucia .. ride the rest of Spain , Italy ., Greese or and Eastern Europe. you can ride part of this trip or all .. up to you. I have camp gear . .hostal or hotel . it does not mater to me.
    my bike is the one on the photo on this site . I do not go off road.. this would be a ride for good roads

    I am planning a trip from may thru dec this year. my starting place is Croatia, then august the lake region northern Italy, late august-sept mittenwald Germany, then ride my way to Portugal by November. tentative right now but it is looking better and better. my only riding partner (he has ridden 45 years and had 43 bikes), recently had to give up riding due to health reasons. other people have asked to ride but my style of riding at the time was, let's say, aggressive so I have been a lone rider for some time. I get to stop and stay where I want for however long I want. been to Europe 14 times and want to stay a for several months, if not longer. some places I will revisit then some I want to discover. I don't know about a long trip but might consider one leg of the trip. my aggressive style will no longer be the case in Europe, those days are over, kinda ;)
    I ride a 2015 r1200 gs and am buying another one over there. pm me if you like.

    It sound like you got things all plan out ... I have been to most of the north of Europe ..all the way to Russia .. but I rode to fast and did not see as much as I would like to . to I like to stay to the south of Spain, Italy and Eastern Europe .. I can change my plans in a fly.. no problema. I can go either way .. ride and or stay in places.. I am easy. I am not a slow rider by any means.

    the bike that you are selling .. is that the one on the photo of this site ? were is the bike ? what are you looking to get for it ?

    presently I am in Austria doing the grossglockner but Monday leave and go to Arabba Italy for a week to ride the passes there. unfortunately the weather forecast looks like rain all week. guess I will have to sit in some Italian restaurant and eat pasta and drink red wine all day. :photog
    then the next week up to Mittenwald Germany for some beer, then drop down to church Switzerland for the grimsel and susten passes. back to Slovenia for lake bled and return to where I started after that. croatia for an oil change then drop down into Montenegro and Albania.....all rooms booked except for the last 2 destinations. you are welcome to hook up in a leg if you wish......not sure about sept and oct yet, maybe back to the dolomites and enjoy less crowded roads and leaves changing colors not to mention the incoming "champagne air" in the alps. :beer
