São Brás, Portugal to Minaya, Spain

A long 650km run to Minaya in Spain today, the first stop on the way out of Spain when using the eastern route. It’s a straightforward ride other than the twenty minutes that needs to be done through Seville city, which is high transit, lane strewn and not particularly safe (and I have twenty years experience of riding in London, so for me to say that a city is unsafe takes quite a bit!).

Anyway other than that it’s a great ride. I stopped briefly a couple of times for fuel, sandwiches and water etc. But other than that just kept on riding!

Arrived mid afternoon at the AirB&B I had booked for the night in Minaya, a small town a few kms off the freeway between Seville and Valencia. Handy location and a great place to spend the night.

Bike, meet blog…

So, here’s where we start, with my one year old KTM 1290 SA – 1300cc and 160hp of the latest in high-tech Austrian motorcycle engineering.

These pics are from yesterday and I have put 20,000kms on it over the past year. Let’s see where it takes me from here and how many kms it eventually ends up with.
