Summer roadtrip

Hi guys, Im planning a roadtrip to Spain Pyrenees (and some France maybe?).
Well, the truth is im not going to plan it very much.
The premise is to sleep hidden in the countryside and campings, when I need to charge electronics and have a decent shower.
I want to do a kind of film of the trip that I will upload on youtube.
I will carry two 13L panniers and a 40L waterproof bag.

Its my first trip on a motorcycle so will see where it leads, I hope I can survive at least 3 days.

I'll be rooting for you then from this point on then. Of course I'll be a little green with envy.

I have a mate who keeps going on about us doing route 66, which is a fantastic, thought though comical as he has a 125 vespa on L plates. We are gently trying to justify the cost of the test to his wife. to very little avail at the moment. Who knows, it may well happen on day................

I have that in mind too, but I will start from something small like my thing of the pyrenees. Then maybe going around Italy or France.
It may sound weird but EEUU is one of the most frightening countries to me (with that thing of guns), at least in the north hemisphere.

Ride thru.
