Couple of years ago had a great two weeks touring from Manchester (UK) down to Marbella (Spain) on a GS1200. Am planning another trip in June and would like to take the T100, had the bike a year now and just love it but have not put many miles on it. Any experience of the T100 as a tourer, I usually do 300-400 miles a day. Will probably change the seat.

hiya Jai, Ridden a few times down through France on other bikes,but this year will be my first on my T100.Thinking about using some Hein Gericke soft bags from a previous bike that are quite large and with some tinkering should work ok.Not sure of the full range on the Bonne so need to work that out.Coming back from Santander in northern Spain via ferry but a friend mentioned that a new route has opened from Bilbao @ 200 euros ish..£150 ish which is abit cheaper plus a cabin.Probably using Norfolk ferries on route out as normally pretty cheap. As for the seat will grin and bear the stock Triumph bench seat though after a few hundred miles might regret that although only planning a few hundred miles a day...cheers Reggie

I'd recommend the sheepskin pad. That's a great area in the south of Spain.. if you have time continue a little further up the coast to Nerja, that's my favorite costa del Sol town. There's also some great, scenic motorcycle touring to be had in the Alpujarra mountains south of Granada.
