After 3 weeks living in Barcelona, looking for a motorcycle for my trip, finally I had found it, and I was being equipped to start. The moto is a Suzuki Marauder 250cc year 2000.

Irene and Nils were a big support for my staying and with the moto. They have become such great friends.

Barcelona is a beautiful city that embraces you, it is very easy to get used to it. I enjoyed a lot the Sundays with vermuth and music. Walking on the beach and visiting the Tibidabo, also riding in the city with the new bike

One of the bikes I had seen before was Yamaha SR 250 Special, a man from Terragona (near Barcelona) was selling it and was the only owner.

Afterwards I went to Montcada i Reixac, to a motorcycles store, there I chose the Suzuki Marauder. A beautiful motorcycle, few kilometers, a shade that liked me and short “staure” just what I was looking for. I didn’t like the custom (chopper) style very much, but this bike is very comfortable.

By buying in a motorcycle store I had good suppert for the paperwork, it was the best. When I got the bike I was riding in Barcelona and surrounding areas.

For baggages, I went to the store Givi Barcelona (Italovespa), located in Carrer d’Aragó 153, in Barcelona, where they gave me great advices and tips 🙂

I decided for the waterproof bag 40 liters to put clothes, shoes, and personal articles. The top case would be a MONOKEY® 40 LTS to put my small backpack with the lap top, papers, batteries and gopro accesories, etc.

The guys from Italovespa (http://www.italovespa.com/) helped and taught me how to put my stuffs on the moto, they were wonderful and very proffesionals.

These bags will be my baggage during this trip. In the green one that comes with me from Mexico, I have tools for the bike, camping tools, medical kit.
