@Jyrays
That's a long day's ride. I took a more leisurely route via Toulouse over two days on the D roads.

Hope it's stopped raining.

WOW! That's a tour!
Reminds me of chatting to a KTM rider off the ferry in Dover; replying to my question of where he'd been in France, he said he'd landed and 'turned right and kept going 'till he got back to Calais again, two weeks later.'

Josep, you are right, some parts were boring but we had few fixed points to go and then it came as it is...

We found very nice small roads in the mountains too, even same called "Honda" and one Varadero cafe  8)

And you cant do all at once, something for next trip too!!!
