Booked ferries and stuff to go to Wheels and Waves in Biarritz next month. Looking at this I think I might win a prize for uncoolest person thereShocked

Somehow B&W photographs are always more dramatic and moody!

The N260 is an epic road as are most in the Pyrenees to be fair

Andorra to sort is a great ride

The N230 is another great road me and spoonz charged down that one last year

Wow, brilliant shots and some way cool bikes. That Triton is sooooooo sexy too.
Life aint about the destination, life's about the journey. That's why we ride!

Nice vid Ian - although I reckon it's going to be a bit sweaty hauling the Speed Triple though all those bends. I've loosely planned a 250 mile route on the Sunday after we leave Biarritz but I'm beginning to wonder if that might be too much of a good thing for one day. Got to do it though as I've already booked up this hotel where the food is supposed to be superb!
Only me on the Triumph and a 990 Superduke going, so we should be able to 'make progess' as the advanced chappies call it.
Going to give the Trumpet a good brake service as well (new fluid and dual carbon pads) - think it'll need it. Never forget going through to the pad backing plates and trashing the discs on a Z500 on the Route Napoleon in 1980-something.
Thanks for the tip Garin, I'll check it out.
Yeah, those shots are nice. But you can see why a fat bald bloke might feel a little out of place in that company! Just have to roll up the legs of my jeans and stick some antlers on my lid or something.

Sounds more like an audition for the Masons or Buffs than a bike trip LOL

It's a pity we can't beam that road up and put it down somewhere nearer (like Wales) it would be great as long as it bought it's weather and lack of traffic with it.

It's about 350 miles long Ian, don't think it would fit in Wales!

That's ok,I'd thought about that.

I'd have it adjusted to something like circuit shape during the beaming process Big smile
