Now that look sliek a good trip Just one question, from the Bilbao region, the route and back to Bilbao - how long do you think I'd need given the same schedule / speeds as you? Since I'd be coming into the Bilbao ferry port, this is rather useful info!!

cheers

Markie (Glad the route was accurate!)

Hi Markie, we do the route in 7 days, using completely. from first day early in the morning to seventh day night.

Euskalherria - superb report and pictures, very impressive! Thanks for sharing.

Markie_wales - a bunch of riders from the UKGSer site are due back from a two week Trans Portugal ride (not on GS's) any time soon, at least one of them (Timpo) posts on here as well. If I see anything I'll let you know.

Another place added to my "Must do" list.

Sorry, Mark, I must correct you: it's a bunch of Advriders...

The English ones have docked in Plymouth at 10.00 this morning and a few pics are already posted here.

Cheers, Ela

My kind of trip, and thanks for sharing and showing places that we will never able to see!

You're wife on a 640A, impressive. I have the same and it's a tall bike.
