The first weekend in July see the Spa Bikers Classic, so me and two mates, (my green Z100SX, a CB1300 and a Triumph that looks like a "Transformer" robot in disguise) have booked the Dover to Dunkirk ferry from Thursday morning to Monday afternoon for £51 each. We're stopping at Blankenheim which is halfway between the Spa and the Nurburgring circuits. We don't take the bikes on the Nordschleif, (not at the weekends, it's full of locals in stripped out BMW's and Porsches) but we can easily waste an afternoon stood at the fence watching the loons that do.

I'm just gutted that after booking this I've realised that the World Superbikes come to Donington Park on the same weekend and I considered myself a Leon Haslam fan. ( Went to school with his dad and told everyone that's ever met me !!! )

:230: :230: no no no I want sun n warmth ..no rain.

Jokes aside really effects the enjoyment of the whole ride.

Much rather wait a month if I have to.


Hi.
Greetings from Spain, Barcelona more specifically.
This is a lottery, although it is normal at that time to have good weather.
If you need help regarding routes around here, do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks may very well take you up on that.

If you know good spots to camp etc.

I’m looking to do as much of the Pyrenees as possible... but also open to other places.

Be quite good to do a few biker popular areas so chance of meeting up with other bikers for a beer to 5 in the evenings would be a bonus.

Hi.
Where do you get to Spain?
How many days do you have?
What do you plan to do, in what direction? Do you want to get to the Catalan coast?
French Pyrenees and Spanish, I understand that you do not care.
Because you could be rolling through the Pyrenees for a month without going through the same place twice.
I will put roads or interesting sections to go by motorcycle that I know, mainly from Catalonia and Aragon.
As for the camping, I travel with my wife, so with her luggage I can not carry a tent, hahahaha so we usually stay at the hotel.
Although if I can advise you a biker.

Going to take ferry to Santander, then head into/along the Pyrenees, prefer to stay in Spain, but not overly fussed.

Looking to stay maybe 10 days, camping if the weather is good enough.

Will look tonight and maybe give a bit clearer idea of where I want to go, not really bothered about going along coast unless it’s great roads.

Looks like it’s going to be solo again, Son in Norway with military.

Still thinking, of going in April, maybe May weather depending.
