Hola mis amigos. (also: bike transport)

Discussion in 'UK Motorcycles' started by Paul Carmichael, Feb 1, 2004.

  1. I was planning to bring my bike to Spain. However, it would seem that
    the weather in England/France/Northern Spain is utter utter shite and
    bloody cold etc.

    Does it cost stacks to ship a bike abroad? Anybody around here know?

    Apart from that, I'm missing you all desperately and I'm a lying bastard.

    See some of you on a BOTAFOT in a few weeks maybe? Be nice to catch up
    (not that I ever could).

    Look for a J.R. in es.charla.moteros. He works at the Valencia harbour
    customs and has *some* idea about shipping a bike.

    Why not just take the ferry to Bilbao/Santander. Granted, there might be
    some shit weather in Northern Spain but at least most of the riding will
    have been done.

    I have the pleasure of a Moody 38 next week out of southern Spain. Better be
    nice weather or I ain't sailing it to Morocco, it doesn't have the in-cabin
    auxiliary helm option.

    Anyone sailed near Gib? just how ferkin busy is it?

    Is it heck as like, there was a small amount of snow and as usual the
    southern softies could not cope. Heck , they even cancled the
    Middlesborough V Arsenal game, not because of the pitch but because they
    knew the Londoners would not be able to cope with a small sprinkling of
    snow around the area.

    Currently warm, with a bit of wind and rain.

    It´s an option, but that ferry is having a re-fit (it´s also an
    expensive route). Also, Coming down through Northern Spain, I believe
    it´s impossible to avoid the mountains. Lovely countryside, but they´re
    currently having rather a lot of snow up there.

  10. The wife tells me it took an hour to drive half a mile. Like you say,
    daan saaf they can´t cope the merest sprinkling of snow.
    Actually, it wasn´t so much the UK section that I was on about.

    The ferry drops you in Santander, there should be a decent road to Bilbao,
    then former N-I (now A-1) down to Madrid, M-40 to surround it and former
    N-IV (now A-4) all the way down Despeñaperros to sunny Andalucia. Except for
    the Santander-Bilbao which I don't know, it's two lanes highways all the

    Since Morocco authorities were forced to keep an eye on illegal emigration,
    the likeliness of hitting a zodiac crowded by some 35 Africans is much

    Keep in mind that places like Tarifa are famous for their (lots of) wind.
