Hello all. I end a work trip next week in Barcelona and I have 4 days to roam. I rented a street Glide from the local HD dealer. I am looking to ride June 1-4. If anyone has any recommendations for roads to check out let me know. My basic plan is to try to get some coastal riding in and then maybe try to hit some routes in the Pyrenees. I have never been to Spain before so I have just been looking at google maps and trying to find some routes. If anyone else has any experience around there, I'd love to hear about it. And If anyone wants to meet up, let me know...

Thanks, Shawn

Cool, I checked a few of their videos out...

I'm Stil not sure where I'll go, but I'll post it when I do. I'll include some videos and cities/roads in case anyone else ends up there. There seems to be lots of adventure bike touring through the Pyrenees. A couple places have routes posted. I don't have enough time to do the whole thing, but I'm hoping to find some good sections within a day of Barcelona. I have a bunch of little cameras with me form his tour I'm on, I'll film what I find...

So far the C-31 is the ticket

little late on the thread, but the best is to ride up to Girona along the coast. then inwards heading to Andorra.
any road off the highway there is a good one IMO.
C roads are highways. GI roads are the best for hairpins and stuff.
also check out Riu Ter, you can ride along the river for hours.

if you wanna go through the Pyrenees, i'd suggest to go past the french border. they have better routes there.
also you can check out some Tour-de-France routes.

best thing is to ask for a Navigation at the HD dealer, they will have all the good moutain passes listed.
