    You won't be disappointed, there are some excellent roads there for sporty riding, not to mention the Portimão Circuit

    This one is in the Serra de Monchique area ( that's not me in the video ):

    went up and around Silves and Monchique on the cruiser and would love to do it on the T
    Alvor, Portugal to Alvor, Portugal - Google Maps
    also went down and around Sagres and TBH I could have some fun just doing the slip roads on and off the A22

    Mr B, that explains your interest in cruisers then.

    I would like to see you get one of them up on the back wheel in third.

    As Aldo says, sounds like an excuse for a good run out.

    This idea will be like a run away train.

    One you get on, you wont be able to get off.

    We've been having our fair share of rain here too, a couple of weeks ago some serious floods took place ( submerged roads, vehicles ). Last weekend were the first "dry" days we've had for some time now.
