Ride a Fazer in Spain
« on: 18 May 2018, 10:44:04 AM »
How about this for a winter holiday? - if you’d like to ride a Fazer 600 in Spain have a look at Spanish Fly Ride http://www.spanishflyride.co.uk/  https://www.facebook.com/SpanishFlyRide/

Three of us had 5 nights there last week with four days out on the bikes - the bikes, including a Boxeye Fazer were well prepped (and all on Michelins).

The roads out in the hills and mountains are amazing with stunning scenery – smooth, grippy, no potholes, no speed cameras, no Police (ahem, other than a minor run in with the Guardia Civil), sun, blue skies, no rain and bends…..lots and lots of bends – tight 270° blind hairpins to ton plus sweepers.

It was 25-28°C every day – October through winter to May is the best time, June to September would be too hot (high 30’s). Even in January it’s low 20’s so perfect for being on a bike.

Breakfast and evening meal with beer and wine included with a pool to cool off in after a long day.

Carl (from Sheffield) and Dessi were great hosts and provided us with some fab food and made us feel at home.

For us it was cheap flights (£44rtn) with Ryanair out of East Mids to Valencia, hire car (£31 or Carl can pick you up) and about an hours drive to Gata de Gorgos – Alicante is about the same.
Carl’s villa location is very quiet and only 5-10 minutes from those amazing roads.

There’s no limit on miles covered, just put fuel in and Carl will guide you on roads he’s ridden 50+ times and he’ll record your knee down efforts.

Couldn’t fault the overall value - looking to go back in November for the last MotoGP of the season using the bikes to get to the circuit.

And no, I’m not on commission, I just think what Carl did for us is worthy of a mention – we had a fantastic, memorable time.
