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.

Original or a rebuild?
The 60-year-old rider of this beauty said the bike had been his father's, and must be from the mid 1950s or so. We're having a small debate on what its origins really are. Any clues?
