Great, glad you're enjoying it. These bikes are made for roads like that. However, if you think that's good, you need to go to Corsica. I was out there in May, and it absolutely blew me away the roads they have over there.

Must get some pics posted up.

Safe journey home Mate.
This is what I do with mine....

Even more impressed today. Did some more mountains and round some lakes in disgusting weather, three turned round and went back. It just handles everything so well. The Contis are perfect for me and this bike. 1600 out of me rear, is that normal :D

I love the north of Spain. I have a recurring dream of retirement there. Only 19 years left!!

Potty. Haven't seen one ktm the whole time we've been here. This morning pulling off the hotel car park an orinj Smt went by. Gave a wave which was cool. Got to ferry port and theirs a chap there with another orange Smt with his missis on the back. Loaded up been down to Cordoba. Shaking hands having a natter raving about the bikes. It's like a secret society. Full of odd bods on odd bikes :ugeek:
I've got few fotties and a bit of video one of the lads took of me so I'll put em up when I get back.
Currently having a Guinness ont ferry with the boys chillaxin post euro hoon feeling rather contented 8-)

Some video from when I took the lads up a bit of a mountain one morning, it gives you the gist of the Picos. You can just about see me at beginning and the end.

Brings back memories, top roads there.
Looks like a big crowd you had, from the earlier pic, how many motorcyclists on that trip ?

12 all together, but we usually split up into 4/4/4 or 6/6 and just tried to meet up at various points. We never managed it really as mostly the faster lads stuck together while the bimblers bimbled, all happy to do whatever. Out of the 12 I'd met most several times and some were mates anyway. Only one pleb had to have a verbal regarding group etiquette. A good mix really, some top boozers annall 8-)

More SmTastic roads,
Seriously bumpy road this, the Tuono boys were moaning like girls but the Smt just blitzed it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QRGmxgF ... tube_gdata

Some more but skip to 6 mins and you can see bits of the ultimate mountain bike :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1suAKf-s ... tube_gdata
