Day 1 - Arrival day Malaga, Spain

The ride is on again at the Iberian peninsula! Today the tour clients all flew in to Malaga and had a nice and relaxing day and got rid of their jetlag. The tourguides prepared the motorcycles for this tour today and washed off all the Sahara sand of the bikes !

Day 2 - Riding day Malaga to Sevilla

And off we went! The weather was better than predicted, so overall during the day a couple of raindrops was not too bad for the first riding day in Andalusia. As soon as we left  the first stretch of highway, we went up the beautiful mountain road to Ronda. Spent some time  there to stroll around and visit the famous Puente Nova. After a relaxed lunch we followed our way up to Sevilla , where we will have a reat day tomkrroq

Enjoy your ride guys.

Day 3 - Rest day Sevilla, Spain

Starting  the day with a 100 procent rain chance and ending up with a friendly sunshine made our restday in Sevilla. With a group of 7 we walked to various highlights the city offers. And we closed the day with a great flamenco show and a superb dinner. Tired but satisfied everbodg went to bed to charge the battery for tomorrow. Up to Portugal!!
