On all our routes we try to respect the traffic laws, without this meaning that they are boring. It is important that if you come from abroad you are familiar with our laws. Although in all our routes the group guide goes to the head of the group and you simply have to follow his rhythm and indications.
Without signs stating otherwise, maximum speed is:
50 km/h in urban spaces,
outside urban spaces and outside motorways: 90 km/h or as signed, may vary between 60 and 100 km/h,
On autovia’s (dual carriage ways) 80-140 km/h (as signed), and
120 km/h on autopista’s (motorways).
The maximum promillage is 0.05 (which is about two glasses of wine or beer).
In bars and restaurants, you often see bottles and glasses that are still half full. The Spanish like to drink, but many of them are capable of drinking moderately.
Try to be very honest to yourself when deciding whether you can do the same, or whether you’d better stay off alcohol completely before riding.
The Spanish law says that you should have a reflective vest with your luggage, to use in case of an emergency (to prevent behing hit by a car).
In principle, you may not have children under the age of 12 as a passenger on your motorcycle.
In what conditions should children go on a motorcycle?
The regulations establish the following requirements:
The child must correctly wear an approved protective helmet adapted to his size and correctly fastened, that is, with his restraint tape adjusted under the chin. The Homologation Regulation is R-22.05 and can be checked on the labeling of the helmet starting the numbering by 05.
It must occupy the seat intended for the passenger, that is, behind the driver. It is totally forbidden for the child to sit between the driver and the steering handlebars.
You should sit with one leg towards each side of the bike.
The feet should be supported on side footrests.
