Re: 6 days in Portugal?

If you are flying out then why not try and rent bikes and give this route a go https://www.adventurecountrytracks.com/ ... -portugal/ I am hoping to ride out and cover this next year and ride back (Ferry to and from Santander) in 10 days. So it seems doable for you in 6! just a thought :D

Re: Brake snake views, opnions?

I think they would work good for a big bike Russ as the weight of a big bike in a fall can and will bend/snap a brake lever !!!! ive often thought of installing one as its a cheap but effective mod, but never got round to it!!!! i know this inaction will now bite me in the ass lol.... :lol:
