What you need to know about coming to Spain during 'new normal'

I know there is a lot of info about online, so I thought i'd put a bit together after experiencing first hand what it is like touring around Spain during 'new normal'. Other than the common sense stuff, the thing that some may not have considered is having to use a QR scanner to view restaurant menu...

Parts of Spain return to lockdown

It was reported today in El Pais that parts of Spain along the border with France have gone back to de-escalation phase 2 just 24hrs after the state of alarm ended due to a surge in confirmed coronavirus cases. - https://spanishmotorbiketours.co.uk/par ... -lockdown/

Re: Spain opens for tourism from 22nd June 2020

Will you be back up and running later in the year Alan?? Hope you can make the Sort Adventure in September. I haven't been given the go-ahead to restart the activity. I am guessing its because I don't have a center where I operate from, so I can't ensure people follow particular santiary regulation...

Re: Ktm 640 safety switches bypass

Doesn't the side stand switch have to work for the MoT? My 640 failed it's Spanish equivalent 2 years ago because I had bypassed it.

Re: KTM 640 Adventure genuine luggage

Thanks, the ktm parts fiche I have been using didn't show any luggage option so I assumed they had been removed globally. The seller is only asking €60 for a mint 33l original zega topbox, so I can't imagine I'll lose any money by buying and trying it.

KTM 640 Adventure genuine luggage

Can anyone remember whether KTM or Touratech offered a Zega topbox for the 640, and if so, what size it was? Neither company show the discontinued items for reference. I've seen one advertised for sale, but from memory I thought KTM only offered panniers and a tank bag for the 640. I've got the orig...

What else are you doing during the pandemic lockdown?

I had to close the doors to Spanish Motorbike Tours when the state of emergency was declared, and I found myself under lockdown at my friends farm in Spain with a girlfriend of just 3 months. My friends were due to return from Andorra (they are ski instructors) last week but they are also under lock...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

At least 116 people cleared of the virus have tested positive again in South Korea. This could change everything. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/04/ ... d8Llz4kZx4
