The Mystery Bike at a Mystery Location!

Recommended Posts

I was out at 9.15 today to try and avoid the heat.....but I ended up being out longer than I planned. So I sweated my nuts off! :classic_unsure:

Followed a farm access road that I hadn't been on before......and ended up (somehow) at an abandoned village that I found by accident early this year. 

This was the one that doesn't show up on any maps and is not listed on any of the "Abandoned" sites that I look at.......so I can't give you any history on it.

In fact I don't even know whether it's in Granada, Almeria, or Murcia provinces! At a push I'd say it was likely to be Granada......though I went in from the Almeria end.

So here it is......the vid gives a better overview than the pics though.

Still in Granada here.....

Now I'm in Almeria......

Abandoned shit everywhere in this area.......

Then I eventually reach the village after wobbling along some pretty iffy roads....

It's a very odd place because a lot of the houses look quite liveable and are totally secured.

Then there's a few in this state....

By this time I was drenched in sweat so time to make a move!

The bike ended up covered in sand and dust, but that situation has now been rectified! Just needs a polish tomorrow.

The bike was flawless, and you can't put a price on the peace of mind you get when your bike is a Honda! As opposed to some other brands! 

If the 1200GS had fucked up in a location like this the consequences could be dire.....there's no phone signal and you're miles from anywhere! it's serious shit!

Another benefit that I'm finding is fuel consumption......last weekend's trips and this weekend's trips have cost me less than €10. As a rough calculation that has to be over 80mpg! :classic_ohmy:

So there we are......one weekend and two ride reports! I'm fucking carrying you Casuals!

It's a bike capable of a RTW journey......here's a review after 96K miles and with zero issues!

Any similar reports of yours or Buck's model on a trip like this?

If I was choosing a bike for a rtw trip then it would be top contender.... But I ride for the thrill and sport... A CB 500 wouldn't cut it for me... Maybe in 10 years from now...

Sure the ktm might not be has reliable has your Honda... But it's a swiss army knife of bike for everything and it does all those disepline pretty dam good... From gravel roads to keeping pace with sport bikes to long distance travel...again I'm not dissing the CB 500....it's just not for me and the type of riding I do...
