More Spain Sunshine

We rented another scooter to get out into the countryside. This is the town of Andratx about 25 kilometers west of Palma. The road taking us there started off as a full blown highway and ended up a narrow two lane affair working its way up some gentle mountains. We rented a Yamaha 500 Tmax. The bigger scooter made for a more comfortable trip. The extra horsepower came in hand as well!

    What a great idea for vacation, renting scooters. What do you ride when not on vacation I wonder?

      My last bike was a Yamaha RD400. It was the last air cooled two stroke Yamaha made. Unlike the 250/305 Yams that would foul plugs, the RD would idle like a diesel. It handled very well and, of course, had that two stroke power! I hit an oil slick on the highway and got out of riding. My brother just bought a Vstrom 650 and is trying to talk me back into the fold. I was at both Toronto shows.
