Im thinking of heading up to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia but that wouldnt be until the middle of June. Google give a shortest distance of 1600 miles to Tallin, but I never do shortest distances! Probably 3 weeks away.

As for doing the big trips on your own, very often its the best way. Unless you have a riding buddy in whom you are fully confident and whose riding mirrors yours, it can become quite frustrating. As for being on your own, as a motorcyclist every other biker you meet on the way is like your best friend.

Ill probably do something shorter around Easter time, maybe Portugal again or Spain.....somewhere warm. Ill let you know.

Anyway, we can talk when we meet next Saturday.

I was looking at southern Spain to start with as my sister has a house down there which could be base camp for a week or looking at alps trip

I would opt for Spain in the first half of the year. The high passes in The alps dont open until late May/early June.

For Spain, the nice option is the ferry to Bilbao or Santander. Cuts out the long slog through France.
