Croatian penisula Istria is not only sea
 
Hi guys,
For autumn season last year we are planned a short trip to the old military roads on the border between Austria - Italy - Slovenia, but for unfavorable weather forecast I had to come one day before departure up with plan B.
The coast Croatian peninsula of Istria is known, but what it is in the inland of Istria?
We was six bikes and seven people.
1x Triumph Tiger 955 me with my wife, 3x BMW 1150 GS, 1x BMW 1200 GS and 1x KTM 950 SM
6 days and 2000 km.

1. day was boring, rainy and journey mostly on highways up to the Slovenia.
The last 30 km we drove through the valley of the river Radovna
