Advancedbiker Motorcycle Training in Spain - Day Two



Day 2.  Saturday 26th January 2013

Another sunny start for me and Glyn, but a bit a shock for one of us.  There are actually two 7.30's in the day. (Please note Glyn)
The run to Orchette our start point was about a hour away, so we took the coast road, the N332, but soon found out that the strong winds had returned and it made riding interesting. Especially when we nearly got blown of our feet at the toll booth......

Great news when we got to Johan and Sharon's house, another motorcycle had arrived.  A smart Kawasaki that Sharon was interested in buying.   So we all had motorcycles for the day, me on the Blackbird and Johan on his Suzuki.

A quick cup of tea to start the day and a chat over a route, which took in less bends, so they could be assessed on planning for bends more.  It was decided that we would return to the N322 and head for Alicante along the coast, stopping for fuel at El Campello before heading in land.  Sharon did the honors and lead and she found some great 'twisties'.......
After a great session we ended up for a break at a well visited motorcycle stop at Venta Terassa on the cv 800.


 
The weather  was fine and I had'nt brought my new HD Drift camera 800 miles, not to use it,so I had a go, first at the cafe and then helmet mounted..... 

The road we were on the CV800 enventually lead to Alcoy, but after the cafe stop, we still had a fair bit of climbing, now with Johan leading, before we stopped to admire the view further up...

 Then it was on to lunch, well Tapas near to Alcoy and then a big 'loop' north towards Xativa, Gandia and Pego back to Orba.



Another great day, great company, great weather, great roads and great progress made

Our route



 Time to relax before the last day of assessing......
 
Saturday  night was at Restaurant Paraiso, Parcent.
