All the motorcycles were clean and in top condition, no issues whatsoever, again the staff at the depot checked and rechecked and answered any questions. The other thing Portugal did was to serve as an escape route for jews. The pickup back to airport went smoothly - right on schedule, and the two included meals were really quite fine - the Bilbao hotel had a menu that was quite gourmet and in Madrid, we had good choices.
