I am in my 60 and looking for buddy to share trip to southern Spain. I have a place in mind in Portugal. I have been there a few time's. Ride down through France. Cheap hotel on the way. Leavening in May. Should be on Dover dock on the 14. Which will give you few day's to ride down to Spain. The complex in Portugal is about £200 for the two week's. Great road's round the place . Lot's to see, or I would not keep going each year. It's not an arm and a leg job in cost. I can make a Euro go just as far as the next man. any one want to come along?
To buy petrol in Europe. Pull up at station. Wait. Get out a 20 Euro note, then ask someone to fill up the bike. Give person money. Ride away. Simple.
