The Monster travels home.

The upside of having a UK registered bike that lives permanently in Catalonia is that every year you have to ride it home for its annual MOT. A lot of people might think this a massive imbuggerance? I assure you it is not! 

It means that at least twice per year I get to ride her on consecutive days, which adds up to mucho mucho divertido! Two or three days up, two or three days down depending on my schedule and whether or not the glint is in the eye! 

I try to change the route every time to experience different roads and changing landscapes/towns. Here is my route up a couple of years ago, heading toward Dieppe prior to getting married! The wife-to-be was very impressed! lol
