    to continue with me scoot in Spain, the weather wasa closing in and darkening clouds abounded.
    .
    i moved on in front of said darkness and soon hit on me crash point for the night....
    .
    'twere a bit on the small side but mega panaromanic views and an outdoor bathroom

    as i lay on the superking luxury bed I took note of my travels thus far for the day................only 80 odd miles covered after almost 6 hours inda saddle with visits through Antequera, Colmenar, Trapiche, Portugalejo, Riogords, Villanueva de Cauche and other such exotic sounding places...
    .
    soon enough I drifted on into slumber while peering out through the porthole window at the wondrous stars above....
    .
    next day i had planned to do another of the bestbikingroads scoots through the parque natural montes de malaga....

    .

    with all me possessions sittin apperched on me back an the sun ashinin' like f*uk i wuz gettin a bit dazed...........me gear was all black so that helped some but it all kinda agreed with me in some perversepiligrimmy way...
    .

    twere luvlyncool and as i was stopped and stood there an unmarked cop car pulled over and one of the pricks proceeded to atethebollix offa me.............not a baldy clue did i have o what the fu*k he was so fu*kin' thick about but being the honourable kindabuck i am i let him gett all the steam outta himself soas he could calm the fu*k back down...after what seemed like foreeeeeeeevaaaah he landed his big greasy hole back into his car and spedoff...............hmmmm
    .
    .
    i stood there awhiles to think a bit about the aforementioned situation which had unrolled afore me........and i looked down the hill and could see his car scootin down below me...
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    that be them in the silvery car there..........i realised they had been parked in a spot where i had previously passed and might a noticed i was going a smidgen over the allowed speedasitwere and when the buck went to the back o the bike upon spottin a small foreign paddy licence plate...well, that mighta been why he was all upset.............or maybe he was just hungry for his breakfast, perhaps we'll never know !
    .
    i headed meself back inland to quieter pastures and got along just fine.
    .
    headed into a wee villagio to see if i could purchase a buideal of water/aqua/agua.........tried me luck with these two citizens but neither would spill the beans...

    .
    agus arais aris go dti an sceal......
    .
    the town, itwere called Osuna, be's a biggish university town i'm thinkin'..............but no much westernised kinda locales such as mickyd's or burgerfling or anyodat...........no cell phone shops..........no much in da way o bars...............but i did find one..................i didndeednidid.
    .
    i came to the logical conclusion to base meself here for a few days after sampling summa the nectar that comes outta these udders....
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    sure i coulda been in a worsernbadderer place.
    .
    i had a hankerin to be tryin out this thing i'd heard of, tapas...........so i gets the menu and fu*k me but i hasn't a freakin' clue what is what, it's not even all really in spanish but some locally dialecty prose............and no f*k'in pictures either....
    .
    but i had a lash and got some bitsnpieces...............tasted grand but its kinda weird not knowin if the food is gonna be sweet or savoury till ya get a few chews of it...............got some funny looks too as i had mixed up the sequences as in savoury first - you get the idea...........
    .
    i was so hungry not havin eatin proper for a few days, so i didn't give a munkys fu*k what anyone thought.
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    just to give you an idea, this thing above was pure sweet and tasted of hunny....................hmmmmmmmmm..
    .
    still the goldenny liquid was doing its job and i was feelin' the love !
    .
    i got a pic of the place just for you incaseyouare down that way sometime.............it was mighty, but again no tourists/whiteys/foreign types udder than meself to be seen outnabout.
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    so i went off to bed a happy hombre and shlept the shleep of the depraved and intoxicated..............tomorrow the sun will come out tomorrow........tomorrow tomorrow..............hmmmmmmmmmm

    Ronda was full full of tourists, mostly following guides round with umbrellas, shouting in ivery freakin language you could imagine, pretty cool to see all us humans with our differencesnsimilaritiesmixedin.

    Hola
    .
    the longwinded schamozzleofastory continues as we approach the darkest of days hereabouts.
    .
    .
    so i wuz making me way towards 'Zahara' on an absolutely amazing bitta road and the sun twere scorching nhotnsticky and i had to stop as i seen this acoming down towards me
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    two kids with the biggest smiles i'd seen in a long while, oh and a horse too !
    .
    this be the place and there were a castle atop it and o course i wud have to go to the top ofit cos dat's wot you do, isn'tit.
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    again the castle is in the background
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    these kids were the first peoples i'd met in hours, no cars, tractors, trucks, nothin' and get a look at the road turnsnsurface as they headed off on their clippetycloppety horsie
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    OK it were time to climb to the top.....
    .
    the lake below was a cool colour indeed but the heat at the top was hot, i wuz almost outta puff and not a sinner to share itwith !
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    long ways down too
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    not the most safety conscious place though
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    having used up a whole seven point five minutes of me holiday going up therenwonderin why the fu*k anyone would, i got on me rothar and moved off
    .
    .
    one last look back - yup i has to admit i went upndown this road a few times and it just got sweeternsweeter
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    headed off to prada del rey in a fuzz then on to grazalema, completed a circle n back again to zahara...........remember - no gps and more importantly no clue !
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    was about six o clock and i wuz hungryzfu*k so i had me some peanutsnfantanwater (pilgrim) and filled the bike for about the fourth time that day
    .
    considered lookin for a place to stay but no interweb and very isolated and eventually found an old spot, bit run down but amazing view..........it'd have to do for tonight.
    .
    first - the view
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    the downside was the place itself
    .
    .
    [​IMG]
    .
    .
    on closer inspection there was plenty of ventilation
    .

    Thought I'd resurrect this thread with apologies to the Author. Got a new bike. The old one was spending more time in bits on the garage floor whilst I stood over it swearing. I hope to get more miles on wee boreens and lanes this year.
    Lough Erne, County Fermanagh is the back-drop..
