You ask/you answer: Where should I take my sports bike?

I read Michael Neeves’ African adventure article on sportbikes and am feeling inspired to take my CBR somewhere exciting, especially now the sun is showing its face. I have ten days off from work next month and would like to head to Almeria, southern Spain. I am a bit stuck for a route though as I don’t want to miss...

Scandinavia

one of the most beautiful places you can go, every mile you could take a photo and put it on a post card, roads are big, uncongested and smooth.

Northern Mexico

Great sweeping empty roads with intermittent twisties all through the Sierra Madre mountains. Yum.

On the track where sports bikes are meant to be risen. Not on the road where idiot sports bike ride riders kill themselves.

I would be tempted to take the ferry to Bilbao or Santander, if you ignore the cost of the cabin, it costs no more than the fuelacross France. The roads in Northern Spain were very good, I will admit that I was always in a rush so stuck to the main roads, but they were good. Head down to Madrid, Cordoba and then toward Ronda down to the coast past Malaga then up into the hills and the back roads/old moorish routes to Granada before heading to Almeria (not by the coast road go inland. Simple. I used to do Marbella to Bilbao easy in a day, took the Toll roads around Madrid, its a great chance to hit the limiter.

I think you'll find that sports bikes (along with all other types of bikes) can be ridden wherever you like.

Good Idea Arnunn

I was tjinking exactely the same route! Have seen price and it's not so bad considering that you are at see during the night and will get in Bilbao/Santander fresh and ready to start.

Should we start a time to tag along?

@arnunn, @vortex1952: I think that sounds like a winner. Think I'll do that this summer.

I have been looking to a route from Porthsmouth to Santander/Zaragoza/Valencia/Santander; it would take around 10/12 days. The ferry cost is about £485 with a cabin berth.

I am realy tempted to go there and I do speak the language which helps :)
