After cold and long winter in Lithuania, after five long months without a bike, I went for vacation to Andalusia, between Malaga and Marbella. One month before I started to plan a route for 2-3 day ride. Here's what I came to:

On 15th of March I picked up Yamaha Majesty 400 from 'Motomercado' and hit the road. The weather was great and the ride was awesome
Some pics from my ride.

Grazalema - the most beautiful 'pueblo blanco' on my way


And loads of 'pueblos blancos' on the way

Seems like you've had an amazing trip! I've only driven parts of the route by car but it was sure spectacular! I really liked the road between El Bosque, past Grazalema (which is indeed beautiful), towards Ronda, lot's of nice twisties there.

Beautiful adventure! I can't wait to arrive in Sevilla and pick up my bike. I am totally ready to explore. Thanks for all the advice on routing. I am looking at the map now.

cheers!

That's the kind of trip I intend doing next May. I also was looking at hiring from Motomercado, but from Fuengarola as it's closer to Malaga airport. I had also thought of hiring the Majesty 400 as it is twist and go for a more stress free ride.
What were your thoughts on Motomercado?

Nice!

I have planned to go there too, probably with a PCX 125 from Honda. It's part of a very long (for me anyway) journey from The Netherlands to Tarifa in Spain and back again.
Thanks for the pictures, sort of pre fun for my journey.
