    Did you carry luggage? If so, did you the remove it just to make the photo look more spoprty?

  3. Here’s the route: http://tinyurl.com/29yunw

    It was a day trip out from Fuente Dé, hence the lack of luggage. My luggage is a Ventura kit: http://www.calamander.co.uk/luggage/ventura/vbuild.htm
    If you look closely between the pillion seat and exhaust end can you’ll see a black metal pole – that’s the L-Bracket which is bolted to the subframe (extensive disassembly was required!) permanently. When I need to mount the luggage I slip the pack-rack into it and clip the bags onto that. I think it’s probably the best way to fix luggage to a sports bike, the metalwork is superbly engineered.

    The overall route was Santander > Fuente Dé > Sergovia > Hondarribia (near San Sebastián) > Evreux (west of Paris) > Calais

    I love the zx6r, that is a great picture. I think that is what I will get when I trade in my er6F in about 18 months, if I don’t crash again :-)

    That’s part of the route that I took with Martin. But you did it in a day! Impressive. Those tight twisty roads are hard work.

    Did you stay at the parador in Fuente Dé? Is it a nice place? Did you go up the cable car?
