Bike legalities

I've had a search around the web and on Simon's web site for the legal requirements for motorcycles in Spain. My bike has no indicators and no wing mirrors (actually I've added one) which, if they're not standard equipment, I believe is legal within the UK. Certainly that's how it was supplied to me...

Re: Slow forum

Really slow for me. They've suffered a lot of spam lately which may be the culprit.

Re: Websites dedicated for off road car!

It might be worth looking at Vibraction: https://www.vibraction.org/road-books/espagne/ they do all of their research in 4x4s. The TET coincides with the Vibraction routes in quite a few places.

Re: From santander to Andorra - TET or road. Help please!

Given the time you've got I think you're going to have to bite the road bullet if you want to ride the trails around Andorra. The TET is a meandering, zigzagging route that, even in the places where you're seemingly covering ground at a fair pace on wide gravel roads, takes a lot longer than directl...

Re: Need abrassion resistant jersey?!

I high-sided on tarmac wearing the Mojave Pro over a Leatt Airfit 3DF and came down on my elbow hard enough that it broke the skin on my elbow (I assume grazing against the armour) but the Jersey was completely intact. I doubt the bike was doing more than 20 mph when it flipped and I probably rolled...

Re: TET Amiens to Clermont Ferrand

I think you probably stopped at the point where it starts to get interesting. The stretch down from CF around the Dordogne is very good and the terrain much more varied but I concur with your observations.

Re: Newbie incompetence - sympathy and help requested

... which travel insurance company would you recommend for this kind of odyssey? I've not had to put them to the test so I can't provide a review but I have an annual policy with Bemoto that seems very reasonable considering they cover exactly this sort of travel and even events (I think, need to c...
