    Smile Are there any Gsers in Portugal ?

    Hi all,
    I am contemplating a move, and wondered if there are any Gser's in Portugal. Specifically the Silver coast area, that could let me know what the riding is like on road and off.

    Hello mate,

    I live in Vila Real. This is Douro region where Port wine is made . Great rides around here both on and off-road.

    avonhafe,
    good to hear from you and glad the riding is good. I am looking in Obidos, is that very far from you? I haven't figured the distances yet. How long have you been there ? When I get sorted maybe you can show some of the best roads. Might take some time for the house buying process to go through. Since deciding to move I have nothing but questions! as you can tell.

    Looks good, not very GS friendly though. Maybe the tarmac is rough enough.

    That's why you need a KTM 950.
