The afternoon was well advanced and finding no pleasant place (the area is highly industrialized), we decided to continue to Santander, the bike worked well, the light faded, everything was cool except a leak of front light that made my nerves in the wild traffic.
This large harbour city promised us upon arrival to spend a great night. In fact, I confirm we found with a bit of feeling the lively center ...

Buen viaje y buena elección. El norte de España es fantástico para recorrer en moto.
Un saludo desde Galicia (Cerco de Padron-España).
