    Just returned from my first trip to the Picos in Northern Spain on the GS. What a place. Had me laughing inside my helmet and jaw dropping scenery and roads. Just going to post a load of pictures if anyone is interested.
    For anyone who hasn't been to the Picos, please put it on your bucket list. It is incredible.
