Useful information on the road of ANZANIGO

Coming from France, cross the Somport pass as far as Jaca which is 30 Km, from the border. Take downtown Jaca instead of "Sabiñánigo-Huesca". Full the tank in the gas station because gass is less expensive and there in no other gas station as far as Anzánigo, 30 km. form Jaca. Take "San Juan de la Peña" road but PAY ATTENTION, there are two, you must take the left one. This is a beautiful road full of bends. Later, not to take the San Juan de la Peña Road on the right. When you see a Sanglas motorcycle, stop. Have a nice trip!.

Down and Dirty Part II


Toro Trail in Spain and Morocco

We are based in Southern Spain just 20 minutes from Malaga airport in the picturesque mountain village of Alhaurin El Grande.

We pick you up from the airport in one of our 'limo's' and hand you a cold beer!

Located just 20 minutes from Malaga airport!


“Hi Lyndon,

On behalf of all twelve Swedes, I want to express our honest and deepest THANK YOU for a fantastic adventure in Andalucía!!! We had extremely FUN riding along the trails and riverbeds! The guides (Domien and Carlos) are most certainly the best possible! Everything went just perfect (except for a twisted knee). The whole trip exceeded our expectations by far. Some of us even mentioned it was their best biking experience ever!

Believe me we will spread the word around about Torotrail amongst our biking friends in Sweden!!!

Hope to back sometime soon!

Keep up the good work!

Stefan Cedegren”

Motorcycle Lodge

Gary France posted this on his USA Tour blog and it looks like a great idea.

“I was cruising the web earlier today and I looked at a blog that I like – it is called Thunder Road. Essentially a guy (Radar) in Texas who loves motorcycle touring is considering setting up a lodge (or lodges) to specifically cater for touring bikers. He is gathering information on what bikers might want out of such a lodge and he wants people to visit his blog to vote on this. I have voted and it struck me that I could help by publicising the need for as many bikers to visit his blog and vote.
If you want to vote and help determine what his lodges should contain, or if you want to publicise this on your own blog if you have one, then visit The Thunder Road Blog

Want To Get Down And Dirty?

P6041753 When I first moved to Spain in 1999 I went off-roading with Juande Sempere on a bike lent to me by my friend and workmate Chato.  The bike was a trials bike, you know the type, no seat!  Juande took me in to the mountains around Castalla for an early morning start at 6am.  By dinner time I had been on tracks and over rocks well and truly outside my comfort zone and I was absolutely knackered but it was a fantastic experience.

I also did a track day with Octavio Sempere but that’s another story.

The photo is from a trip I did in June 2007, my second and last time off-road.

For all of you who haven’t tried it give it a go.  You will have spills but more than that it tests you and when you get it right it’s exhilarating.

Mick Extance Offroad Experience

The Mick Extance Off Road Experience is brought to you by Mick Extance and Steph Jeavons in association with Honda UK.  We are a small company set up to show you how much fun you can have on an off road motorbike!! Adventure isn’t paved and we are here to prove it!...

Is it a Plane? Is it a Trike?

Take a look at the Samson Motorworks web and judge for yourself.

If you are thinking of buying a Swithblade then you’d better start saving as the fully functional version will cost around $80.000.  You might be thinking that you can save money by hopping over those toll booths but there is no way you’ll be allowed to take off from anywhere but a designated airfield.

USA Tour on a Harley-Davidson

In June 2010, Gary France will be starting a 4 to 5 month, 13,800 mile tour of the USA on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. At the moment, he is in the planning stage and this blog gives details of how the planning is going. Later, when he is on the tour, it will be updated daily.

Gary said, “I am planning this 13,800 mile tour across the USA from my home just north of London in the UK. I have two Harley-Davidsons motorcycles and I am fortunate that I am able to retire early (part-time at least), put away my business suits and then do some of the things I have wanted to do for years!”

Keep an eye on his blog and enjoy the journey with him.  He is also asking for your opinion on lots of subjects.  Get in there and contribute.
