So I founded the group on the hopes of meeting other bikers and taking modest trips around the Comunidad de Madrid. But no one signed up. I sold my scooter, got a motorcycle license, bought my Bullet. And suddenly there were 10 people in the group. Then 20. Now 40-something. And while some do have 125cc scooters or motorcycles, some have some pretty powerful bikes but they like to go out with us anyway. Javivi has a gorgeous BMW 650 for instance and is a great guy to travel around with, so he's co-manager of the group.

One of our favorite members is Carolina (nick: "Mafi"). She's on hard times and has to sell her bike and move back to her village in Valencia, so we organized a ride for her before she leaves.

Destination: lunch in Pastrana, the old capital of the Alcarria region of Spain, where the famous Princesa de Éboli lived in her palace there and was under house arrest by King Phillip II for the rest of her life.
The restaurant for lunch was a big success (Mesón Restaurante Moratín):
|Pimientos rellenos de bacalao|
|Morcilla de Burgos|
And so were the home-made desserts:
|Chocolate fudge cake|
|Cuajada (curds with honey)|
We had a nice walk around the old town:
|1958 Moto Lube 125cc|
|Looks ok to me!|
Mafi, we wish you all the best back in your village!
