Hi nolle

Great roads!! I know some of them and they are fantastic and th scenery ... wonderful!!

If you want tell me what are the places you'd like to visit and I can check the best places and roads between them! And do you ride only on tarmac or in dirt roads as well? Those are even better then tarmac ones...

Cheers

Can I join in?

Hi all,
I'm not Portugese but live in Portugal near Obidos. We haven't been here long so I am just beginning with trying to learn the language, it sure doesn't help being stupid at times like this but I'll get there at my own speed.Abit like my riding . We have escaped the badlands of the UK and so far we are very happy here. A huge bonus is the great roads and lack of traffic around these parts. Nice to meet you all and hope to catch up on the tales posted on this great site. See you out there I hope.....

Hi everyone!

I'm from Viana do Castelo but living in Matosinhos.

Great to see so many of us around here, let's start meeting and riding together...

Nolle, I've been to "faustino" a couple of times too. Really great food and wine!

Weird because I don't see you there either!! But mine's there!

Let us wait for a day or two for some kind of refresh...

That's probably because you live in Matosinhos and I work near the airport too close

Cheers
