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.

Ham and Rain
The spring rains stopped long enough today to pop by the Regional Gourmet Food Fair stalls set up on Fuencarral near my office these days. Salamanca had irresistible pata negra ham tapas and a nice young red from Burgos, for 3 euros. Who could refuse?
