Driving motorbike in Dezember

In November I thought about driving motorbike, but it was already too cold in Germany. My first idea was to put my bike on the train and leave the country to south, but to my surprise the car-train is a dead end.

Most of the provider want to get rid of it cause most people don't use it.
Well after that knowledege there was only one thing left. Fly to a different country and rent a bike.

After reading through different reports I ended up with http://siggis-bikes.com! It is a german family living in Málaga. The most time I had contact with his son Nieco.

After arriving at the airport in Málaga it was a 10 minute trip with the car to the bikes:

My original plan was to drive from Spain to Portugal but I changed plans cause of weather reasons.

The original route looked like following:

I managed to drive from Málaga to Granada over Antequera, Ronda to Cádiz. After changing my plans I drove from Cádiz to the south along the cost to Tarifa. And from Tarifa I had some really good days while visting Estepona and Marbella.

After I saw enough water I decided to drive to Sierra Nevada.

The Sierra Nevada (meaning "snowy range" in Spanish) is a mountain range in the region of Andalucia, provinces of Granada and Almería in Spain. It contains the highest point of continental Spain, Mulhacén at 3,478 metres (11,411 ft) above sea level.

After seven days, 2.000 kilometers and awesome weather I can definitely say it was a great idea!
Spain is the perfect motorbike country. If you leave the city and drive a view kilometers in the outback you basically own the street.

The only thing left is; Be aware of the goats, cows, horses and dogs on the street ;)
