Re: bike import

Puch, blast from the past. A friend had a Puch Maxi in the late 70s. My Vauxhall 101 was quicker in 1st gear than his bike and I had leather seats.

Re: Looking to move to Benomacarra

Most of those villages have 1 or 2 buses a day to the nearest big town, yours being Velez. Taxi would be about 8 euros I think.

Re: Driving in sandals.

You hear lots of stories about the police stopping people coming from the beach. I don’t know anyone who has been fined for driving in flip flops but to be honest they are quite dangerous to drive in. I was stopped for not wearing a seat belt, I was fined for that but they never mention the sandals ...

But not if the Guardia are behind you. They never need much of an excuse to fine you a €100.

Re: Looking for a holiday home around Competa, Sedella and Salares

The road between Maro and La Herradura has some serious bikers on it. Knee on the ground. Some think they are Rossi. I bet there are a good few accidents on that bit of road. I used to love the road before the motorway was built, stunning views out to sea.

Re: bike import

Surely this is the same problem that I am having with a car, thought of buying a UK-plated one and driving it to UK? Firstly as I am a spanish resident I cannot drive a UK car in Spain (with some odd exceptions, but certainly not with it registered in my name), secondly as a resident you cannot rid...

Re: bike import

You can only insure in the country that the car or bike is registered in under EU law. If you transport and do not ride it to the ITV station I guess you could skip the UK insurance. I personally would insure it in the UK and reregister onto Spanish at your leisure. At least you can use it on UK pla...

Re: Looking for a holiday home around Competa, Sedella and Salares

The road up from the coast is a nightmare. Ok on a 1 off but not one you would want to do on a regular basis. Don't even think about doing it at night! Sid Why not? Don't have much choice in the winter months. Seems to me that these roads are being portrayed as much worse than they actually are. Th...

The road up from the coast is a nightmare. Ok on a 1 off but not one you would want to do on a regular basis. I have friends who used to have an agency in Competa, They used to collect customers from Malaga airport and be asked to abort the trip half way up the mountain road to Competa. I like Compe...
