ID:	39297Not Bobber related but I thought I’d share a few pics from my recent tour of Northan Spain. I covered just over 2,000 miles over 8 day’s via beautiful winding and twisty mountain roads. I aimed to cover between 200-250 miles per day which meant I was in the saddle for anything between 4.5 - 8 hours per day, plus a couple of stops for food and water.

If you’ve been here then you’ll already know how amazing it is... for those who’ve not visited... you need to go and check it out... it’s simply stunning!

I've been there! IMHO it beats the Alps to pieces. Most of the roads are very good. The scenery is spectacular. Most of the roads are not as crowded as the roads in the German Alps.

I know you had a fantastic trip (on the perfect bike for an adventure like that). I envy you. Wish I could go back.

I couldn’t agree more... the roads were barren by comparison which was a first of anywhere I’ve ever toured up till now. Next time around I plan to try the Pyrenees 👍

Definitely try the Pyrenees. They are absolutely fantastic! (I did an Edelweiss tour over the Pyrenees.) Dang. I miss being able to do that but I'm too old to get my butt on a sufficient tour bike . . . like a GS.

The good thing is that I will remember those tours until the day that I die.
