    Just got back from a two week tour to Hungary where I mostly stayed with friends, camped and used hostels. I've got two weeks off in November and am thinking about going to Spain. Away from the cost it might be too cold to camp, so I was thinking about cheap hotels and private rooms...

    Hi I have been to the Pyrenees a few times in the last couple of years - sadly without the bike, so that is on the cards for this June. Does anyone know how to get good deals on the ferries?

    Hola, I'm taking the Dakar for it's 3rd trip through Northern Spain. Trouble is, previously I went in May and October; in August the responses I'm getting to my booking enquires are a mixture of "we are full" or "minimum of 3 (or even 7!) nights stay in peak season". That's no good to...

    You may think you are hard done by in the Uk when buying secondhand bikes but here in Barcelona they seem to hold their price very well, especially BMW's. Just went down to my local dealer and they are selling a 1998 FS650ST (30,000 kms) for 3600 Euros or (2700 pounds at current exchange rates)...

    I am starting a new job in Spain (four year contract) in November and have been told that if I want to take my BMW 650cs out there I will have to change it to Spanish plates within a month, which apparently can be a costly process. Has anybody on this forum gone through this process? I have...

    Has anyone done any touring on their F650GS ? Because I am off to Spain on it in two weeks time, and just wondered how other people got on with them.

    Thought some of you might be interested in a trip I made recently to Spain and Portugal. Although it wasn't as adventerous as some of the journeys described on this website it was good fun and the CS showed what a good all round bike it is. It handled very well on some of the twisty mountain...
