Enjoy yourself...'s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink.

With those wise words echoing through my headphones (courtesy Jools Holland & Prince Buster) I  quit my job, bought a used BMW GS and set off to tour Spain. I have to be back in the UK mid-November to start treatment, 'till then I'm aimlessly riding along beautiful deserted twisty roads in bright sunshine, stopping randomly in tiny mountain villages for food and drink and sleeping in whichever town I arrive at exhausted. Seen high mountain roads and deserted sandy beaches; spent quite a lot of lonely evenings thinking sad thoughts only for them to disappear the next day when I get back on the bike. Wish I could ride forever. 

Finally got to use that mesh jacket

Empty roads, stark scenery

Empty beach, Tarifa

See that little road behind? Riding Heaven

Classic cars

Nice style, pity about the waves
