Hi I've been looking at doing this rally for a year or so. You get discounted ferry tickets if you book with the organisers as well. Info at www.mcpiston.com. I have been to the Picos several times and love the region.
No garage is large enough!

Howdi ..we took the overnight ferry to bilbao spain and rode back along the coast through france stopping in cheapish hotels each night for refreshments.
The weather was amazing..took about 10 days as we did it on honda110 step thrus cruising at 55 mph so you could look at the scenery..100miles average per day for about £7
One puncture was the damage..better on an rd tho.
