Summary

Every year since 2000 I have ridden to Spain on my Moto Guzzi V10 Centauro.
This book is largely about my experiences on those journeys, but also includes articles on more general motorcycling and travel themes.
I hope that the reader will not only enjoy the telling, but will perhaps be inspired to commit their own journeys to paper; you will see that I have managed to improve the way I write, year on year, just give it a go!
Of course I also hope to inspire you to set off for Spain yourself; to this end I have put in a number of maps, some of the common dangers of riding in Spain, books to read, and some cookery!
This is not a guide book; my intention is to encourage you to explore Spain in a way that you might not otherwise.
Although my journeys are normally on my motorbike I hope this will not discourage users of other vehicles from checking out places and roads that I have included here. Make your own assessment of the suitability of the road; as shown on your map, and as you find it. Don’t be afraid to turn back if it looks too difficult. Spanish roads frequently change. One year a pot-holed narrow road, with extremely tight hairpin bends, the next smooth new tarmac with graded corners, or anywhere in between!

I take no responsibility for your adventures. They are yours alone!
