Moto Andalucía 2007

As lots of you know, I tested the waters about a HU Andalucía 2008 earlier in the year and it got a fairly good response. So much so, that quite a few of you here and on other forums asked if we could arrange something for later this year. So here it is:

Moto Andalucia

It's a bit late in the day to be organising an official HU event, so this will be a small meet which will hopefully grow into an annual event.

I'm open to ideas/suggestions from anybody - please don't suggest a bbq - the restaurant at the site can cook it better/cheaper than I could.

If anybody wants any more info, just let me know.

I am planning to tour Spain/ Portugal mid Sept until mid Oct. Sounds like an excuse to extend the trip by a few days. When does it start to get chilly?

I would expect the temperature to be around 25C mid-October. The average daytime temperature in winter is 14C.

Don't forget to register your interest - I've already had a couple of enquiries!

The weekend of 19/20/21 October.

It's a long way to come from the UK for the weekend, so if you want to make it into a longer holiday we'll help you arrange something. Flights and crossings are still cheap and the meet will go ahead, even if we only get one person here!!

I'm sorting out some bike hire/info out for a couple who are interested in coming over from the USA. There's also some possible presentations floating around - Morocco, Garmin GPS, South Africa and Oz. If and when they are confirmed I'll post it on the website.

Dates are fine for me, so I'm a probable definite. It will be good to get reacquainted with southern Spain.

I don't think I'll be able to make it as I start back to work on 22nd October. South of spain isn't too far to come for a weekend I'd have just had fun on the way down and the way back.
Hopefully when you get next year's even organised I'll be able to book time off in advance. I'll more than likely be at the Portugal meet, are you going to be there? If so, I'll speak to you then and see what's planned for next year. Just look for a tired old Scotsman on a Tiger with his son on a Bandit and that will be us

We're hoping to get to Portugal (hubby and me) but it's all in the hands of the British Embassy in Madrid. They are currently processing my new passport application which should be back in time, but if there's a hold up, I can't leave Spain

Sailing prices for the trip.

I checked some prices for ferries from the UK. Prices taken from P&O's website.

Based on sailing out from Dover on Friday 12th October and saling back on Friday 26th October.

Prices are for 1 adult and 1 motorcycle (price for 2 people was the same)

Dover - Calais = £17.50
Calais - Dover = £20.00

Total = £37.50


Ferries to Bilbau and back only seem to run on the Sunday which is ok because you cut out the ride through France if your stuck for time (good or bad?)

Outward: Portsmouth - Bilbao, Sun 14 Oct 2007 - 21:15, £174.00
Return: Bilbao - Portsmouth, Sun 28 Oct 2007 - 13:15, £186.50

Total = £360.50

Going through France is over £300 cheaper which will easily pay for a Hotels, fuel, and great food.
