Nice one Ari, brilliant as usual.

What did you think of the Tracer?

Heard about Motorcycle Diaries?
This weeks story is Pyrenees Border Hopping... looks fantastic!

How was Tracer... Hmmm... Toyota of sport touring bikes.
Not a sexy beast, but reliable and easy riding bike. Didnt like its suspension, too soft for me. Like harder settings for front and rear. Riding position very good, more space than TS has, like the knee angle. Torque/power has a little bit on/off behaviour compared to TS, which is fantastic. Tracer was quite ok, I think.

Interesting comment on knee angle. Sat on one once and thought out felt way too cramped to bother with a test ride.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Me & missus rode the Pyrenees from Cadaques, on the Spanish side via Bonansa & Ochagavia then we crossed onto the French side to camp at St Jean De Luz. See link to our route.

Some chums & meself are talking of a Picos trip next year then a bit of a wander round Spain. Dunno if it'll come off yet. Got a Wales & Scotland trip to sort out first. Not easy when we are spread all over the country.

I did the eastern half of this route - N260 is a great ride! I too spent the night in Cadaques; was my last night of the ride, then my final day went down to coast to Barcelona to return the rental bike.
