Having new tyres fitted and setting off on them for the first time can be a bit daunting especially if the tyres are of a type you haven't tried before.  Listening to all of the stories from friends about "scrubbing in times", watching racers slide off on their outlap and the commentators wax lyrical about new tyres and their "break in period", it's enough to put some people off.

However once you've owned a bike for a few years and had a few sets of tyres it becomes second nature.

Not many takers for this trip, only the three of us, but we had a great time anyway.  I took the usual route down the Calpe Bends (N332) to the BP petrol station at the top of the town to meet up with David and Stu.  David, I have known for years but Stu replied to my post on the Bikers España Facebook Group and tagged along.

Senija to Pilar de Horadada by motorcycleWhat a day, first a ride down to Alicante for the Sobre2Ruedas show then on to the Moto Madness Rally in Pilar De La Horadada, to meet up with a couple of our Facebook group members, before the return journey home via the KTM dealer, Moto Sport Carreres, in Crevillent to check where they are in readiness for the Orange Days event in May.
