I'm a Yank in Spain running a different kind of bull: La Balita Roja, my trusty 2011 Royal Enfield 500 cc Electra, and now also a 1986 BMW K75C that was later tweaked into a K75RT for distance touring. Spain has thousands of miles of fantastic byways for bikers. The food and wines aren't bad, either. So here are roads I've taken, tapas, Spanish wines, food, bikes and bikers I've had the pleasure of meeting along the way.

Solo Sunday to Colmenar de Oreja
In front of the 13th-century Church of Santa María la Mayor. The church bells were ringing for the end of mass as I parked. The church still shows some of its origins as a fortified "castle-style" church. The white stone of its walls and towers is from a local quary, which also supplied the white stone for the Royal Palace and the Cibeles Fountain, both in Madrid.
