Motorcycle transfer from Spain through France to Germany

An email. A new job. A motorcycle should be returned from Spain to Germany and sold there. In the winter. Of course, real motorcyclists ride in winter too. My client had decided that it was not for him.
 
Of course, I took the job and booked, after the money was there, a flight to Spain, more specifically, in the holiday paradise Alicante.
 
The online checkin worked without any problems. It could start.
 
When I arrived at the airfield at 3 o'clock in time for a 6 o'clock flight, my flight was canceled.
 
Thank you Portugal Air.
 
Since there was almost nothing going on so early in the morning, it was time to wait.
 
Afterwards I managed with a lot of tenacity to get a flight to Zurich.
 
In Zurich, I then have to pick up my bulky luggage: tent, mattress, sleeping bag, helmet, motorcycle boots and rain gear and continue to fight.
 
Finally we went to Madrid and from there finally to Alicante. Here my client picked me up from the airport and took me to his hotel where he had rented another room. Sleep first.
 
The next morning we visited the city. Even my free Internet from Netzclub worked here. The first time that the EU has had a positive impact on my life with its Antiroaming Law. On a Mark there was early morning to buy delicious fish. For lack of a kitchen, we could do nothing with it.
 
We were rather told by the great fruit and fruit stands. Also there was fresh bread, spicy cheese and delicious smoked ham. That's how fun work :)

Then it went to the beach. In the winter this was extinct despite two-digit plus degrees. Maybe it was the strong wind.
 
The promenade for tourists had opened but also some dealers were there.
 
The traffic lights in Spain are especially positive to me. Environmentally friendly scooters and motorcyclists are allowed to drive all the way to the front,
 
so that they do not have any cars in the way when they are green. Of this, politicians in Germany could learn something else.
 
There were also many pitches especially for cyclists. So instead of a car suddenly 10 vehicles can park in the city center. Perfect.
 
The huge hotels and block castles, which are all fully booked in the summer, stood empty. In summer, the city would otherwise suffer a traffic infestation.
 
At a delicious pizza, we went through the papers. I should also take all the equipment of my client back to Germany. No problem.
 
In a list my client had noted everything exactly. Even reserve reflectors were mentioned individually * laughing *
 
I quit a deposit, which I should settle at the end with the tank receipts. Let's go.
 
I quickly connected my cigarette lighter with the battery and mounted the Navihalter and my handlebar gaiters.
 
I had previously downloaded the latest maps from Open Streat Map on my GPS.
 
The challenge now was not to be piloted on the toll motorways.
 
Autovia A are toll-free, Auto Pista AP, however, quite expensive. You will be announced an exit before.
 
Since the free map material knew all the toll stations and let me drive off beforehand, the journey was quite relaxed.
 
Every few hundred kilometers I gave the Honda a sip of engine oil. For a 25-year-old transalp nothing special.
 
Past fruit and olive farms, it went to the northeast. The big windshield proved to be very pleasant. After dark I opened my tent hidden somewhere in the forest.
 
As it got colder, I asked a woman if I could pitch my tent in her barn. She said no. Dont worry it would not be so cold today. So off again in the forest.
 
In the morning my tent was so thick with ice that I was worried if it would break when it rolled together. Brushing my teeth unfortunately had to be canceled because my drinking water in the bottle was also frozen hard. Did the little blonde of yesterday ever camp?
 
I almost missed the border with France. In snowfall and thick fog, it went over a pass. The winter tire regulation was fortunately abolished meanwhile. For the photo I had to turn again.
 
Later it started to rain and practically did not stop until I arrived at friends in Freiburg.
 
In her princely castle I was able to warm up and dry my tent. Outside, it started snowing again.
 
Since I had noticed some shortcomings on the road motorcycle, I agreed with my client on a reasonable price, delivered the luggage and bought the Honda. As far as my opinion. All actions are fictitious. All statements without guarantee.
