    I've just started watching "The Long Way Round" again on Netflix. Just because I can. Anyway, I've only got to ep. 2. In it, while they're preparing their bikes I noticed that they cable-tie their...

    "called Praia Do Castros just after Ribadeo but just before Rinlo (another great little village to visit with a coastal walk)."

    That should read just AFTER RINLO heading west and it's Praia DOS...

    I second the advice to avoid both.

    It's not that they aren't "nice" cities but I think you will be left with the thought: "why did I bother?". Oviedo, is really not a tourist city although it does...

    I have removed mine. It's a very simple process; the snap connectors are German (spec) and do not break that easily. The connection is on the RHS of the bike. Be sure to put a plug on the remaining...

    They've had that in Spain for years too (mainly in the north) but they're largely useless because as soon as you are level with the lights, no matter what speed you are doing, they go amber again. So...

    The route looks good. It may be in the write-up but the biggest issue with this route is the sheer weight of traffic in the summer months. The other is the weather in the Pyrennees. Put the two...

    Gotta agree.

    A good general rule is that if you can find N roads that have an alternative M.way, you're onto a winner; they'll be well surfaced and generally free of heavy traffic. However, it...

    Thanks, Wapping. Unexpected kind words from you.:D (only joking)

    The idea is to make it easy to read which in the past I have made, perhaps, too wordy.

    Forgive me for hijacking your thread...

    The EZCAn, by contrast takes less than 2 minutes to plug in and locate with no need for removal of any of the rear topbox carrier, just a seat.

    Common sense. The EZCAN is a solid state system...

    Hi P248, I have to agree to a certain extent with Fred. The EZCAN allows you to plug in up to 4 accessories. The plugs you need to attach the accessories to the EZCAN are readily available on EBAY in...

    When I picked my bike up (new) I was told in no uncertain terms that fitting anything on top of the ECU was a big no-no because it can get very hot and it needs all the ventilation it can get. Not...

    Wapping/Richard

    Tried sending you a message but your inbox is too full. If you can, let me know when you've emptied it a bit or furnish me via a PM with a private email.

    Cheers, Fred

    No, it's the "system" that's called Pegasus. Not every province has one, some may have more than one.

    I had a fine through many years ago when I moved here for parking outside a supermarket on a...

    The trouble is that in the UK we are spoilt. I drive in both and some of the habits here in Spain leave much to be desired, for sure. Most have no idea where their indicator stalk is, let alone what...
  17. Wanna know where all the police and mobile radar traps are in real time in Spain?

    Good day all. Having gotten involved in the thread about the speeding fines in Spain I thought I'd post a seperate thread to tell you about a quite marvellous APP which tells you in real time where...

    HOT TIPS:

    1) Buy a 200hp supercharged Kawasaki and ride it like Arsey!:D

    There, NOW it's fixed.

    On a serious note :rolleyes:

    No, but I'd hang my hat on 90% of the time there are. A couple I can think of on the A8, for instance, do not. Most of the tunnels will have the same sign as the one below but only a very few...

    I find, with a mesh, that it's useful to have the waterproof liner to hand (top part). It may sound counterproductive but there is a temperature range, which is different for each of us, where the...

    I wish you luck with that, Wessie.

    I will likely follow Wapping's advice and keep it less wordy and more factual. Perhaps for the Spring I will have something ready.

    Mine "peaked" when the rear was due replacement (on the GS, not the Tiger); still had tread in the centre, not on the sides. It was quite visible, too. But like you say, at some inclinations, with...

    I'm not sure I understand that, Nutty? You're either missing my point or we're saying the same thing.
