Still no bike but great Moto GP memories

I’m going to post some awesome pictures from the Moto GP weekend in Barcelona. Regarding my own bike-to-be it is a tedious case, yet another promised delivery day has been changed and soon it won’t matter anymore, it will be too late.

Plan A, to ride from Madrid to the WIMA rally in the north of Austria has already, due to lack of time, turned into plan B. This involves a ferry ride from Barcelona to Genoa to shorten the travelling days. But since the ferry ticket can’t be purchased without the registration number this plan is now also at risk. Plan C will be to fly and rent a bike. This is not the journey I want to make since I will miss out on all the countryside riding and the adventure I have longed for since last year. But at least I will get to see my friends at the rally and have a good week there with them.

Now, some sweet memories from Montmeló:

On Friday we had a good view of the boxes from the main grandstand

During the pit walk some riders spent a lot of time with their fans, posing for pictures, chatting and signing autographs while other riders were totally absent.

  1. Sad to hear about your bike isint deliverd yet,and your plans mabye not come throug.
    How does it works in spain dont you signs some contract when you by a bike?
    With deivery date, have you sold your Ducati? cant they lend you a bike since they dont seem to deliver it.

    If something like that would happen to me and the fault is the shop i would go beserk whith them about it. Hope it sort out for you.
    Nice pictures from Moto GP

  2. So sorry to hear that you have not gotten the bike yet 🙁
    I can only imagine how difficult it is to commute in Spain and how painfull it is to think about taking a plane to WIMA. I really hope you will get tyour new bike soon.

    1. Thanks for your support. I moved one step forward today getting the registration number!!! Yeah!!

      As for the pictures I can take no credit for them, but I will pass on the praise!
