Weekend motorbike trip through Central Japan

It finally happened, after all this years riding my Harley Davidson in Europe, and my trips to Japan, I could combine the two aspects of my trips for a weekend ride on the Central Japan roads. An experience that was for long time in my bucket list, and it’s still at the top of my list. Why? Even before returning the Harley Davidson at the Rental 819 store, I was already planning the next road trip. I review with detail many aspects of a first ride in Japan in this article, so if you share the passion for the road and planning to visit Japan, this review might help.

Located just at 100km from Barcelona, the medieval town of Rupit-Pruit makes a perfect day trip excursion, hiking on the many mountain paths to the town, enjoying the views of the valley of Sau and Collsacabra. In contrast with a medieval town like Rupit-Pruit, our modern iron rides made quite a good show the day we visited it.

Road trip to Delta de l’Ebre

Road trips with the main goal of enjoying local food always feel excellent. Riding my Harley Davidson Nightster for leisure and good times, even better. From Barcelona on an early morning departure takes almost 3 hours to arrive to Delta de l’Ebre, non stopping. That’s not the point when riding, enjoying the road, a few breaks and stops on the way ti fill the tank and the stomach. Take a look from this trip, the delightful scenery from southern Catalunya, the Natural park of Delta de l’Ebre, rice fields and the degustation menu from restaurant l’Estany Casa de la fusta.

Les rutes en carretera amb el propòsit de gaudir del menjar local sempre senten genial. Montar la meva Harley Davidson Nightster per diversió i bona ruta en companyia, millor. Des de Barcelona i de bon matí, son prop de 3 hores per arrivar fins al Delta de l’Ebre, sense aturar. Però aquest no és l’esperit de motard, es disfruta dels paissatges, la carretera, i unes aturades al camí per omplir el dipósit de la moto i la panxa. Feu un cop d’ull a l’excursió que vam fer, els meravellosos escenaris del sud de Catalunya, el Parc Natural del Delta de l’Ebre, camps d’arrós i el menú degustació que ens van preparar a la barraca del restaurant de l’Estany a la Casa de la fusta.
