Oh the roads....

Just been to southern Spain and the roads.... endless smooth, sinuous, constant radius turns and best of all virtually empty. You can set them up, get on the gas and blast out - tyres screaming for grip. In your rented fiat panda. If only I'd had the bike. I'd still be riding up and down that road now.

I'm off to spain on a bike in September . Probably going on my 600 hornet instead of the MV.
Ferry down, ride back . Never done Spain before . Germany the last two years which was great roads and hospitality at superb prices .

Brutale 800 Italia
Monster 796 .

Austerity has its advantages then, low traffic volumes...

Why would you go to some of the best roads in the world with your Honda and leave the MV at home....doesn't make sense

It's all day comfy, will use half as much fuel. It won't bother me if it gets shitted up. If anything happens to it or I drop it will be easier to get a honda gear lever than an mv in a small town.
Rode my old brutale to Italy in 2012 and after a few days riding the bike was a pain in the rear literally and it spoilt the rest of the trip for me.
