Guarded parking in the north-west area

Hi

Any hints and suggestions about guarded (attended, manned) parking lots in the north-western part of Romania? As I have said previously transit from Baltics to Romania is an uninteresting and weary part and I would better tow the bikes. How are the rates for say 20-30 days?
Of course if somebody feels that he/she has place to offer, free or otherwise, I am all ears Just PM me, I am glad to discuss!

looking forward to visit Romania again next year

Salutari, roman si eu din Galati.
Imi plac excursiile enduro soft-hobby in special prin Dobrogea sau la munte.
Am fost de asemeni si la EMA (Enisala Moto Adventure) unde am cunoscut oameni minunati.

Greetings, I'm also romanian from Galati.
I like soft enduro trips specially in Dobrogea mountains or mountain-side.
I had been to EMA (Enisala Moto Adventure) where I met alot of wonderfull people.

Question

Salut guys!

I am researching about Romania for a future trip and I would like to know how are the roads in Maramures region. Since most of the riders of our group will be dirt haters, we'll have to stick to the asphalt I would like to avoid traffic and stick to the "yellow" roads, but I have to bear in mind that we'll have 2 sport tourers with us...


About the Transfargasan, did they fix the southern part of the road? It was a bit shitty few years ago.

Hummm, I had "good" and "bad" roads there. You can do it without doing dirt, but you'll not be able to do it without seen a "few" potholes.

Hi there,

South part of Transfagarasan was still shitty last year. with the nasty winter we had I don't expect improvements.

Even some asphalt roads might have surprises for your colleagues rider. Ity was a bad winter and Romanian roads are known not to last ....

Ride Safe and have a great trip,
Adrian

Big up to you!

Thank you all for the help!

After 2 weeks of recon through Romania, me and my friend were very impressed by the people (very nice) and the scenery. Tochitura and Silva dark are the best!
Can't wait to come back.


scarbon, thank you very much. Your site is very usefull. It's a very good reference for someone who never been there.
I know it's also other riders updating the map, but if I can make a constructive comment. It would be good to promove better road description, because in some info there is none. Or also add a picturež
But anyway. Great great project. Thanks for sharing!

I heard thatTransfăgărășan will be closed for all the traffic for some time. Can somebody please provide us with some info? I was planning to drive that road (and Transalpina) in the midle of June. I have enduro bike (BMW 650 GS), would be posible to drive with it anyway? Does anybody knows in what condition is Transalpina? I know it was a lot of snow last winter.

Thanks for any info.

Heloo

Yes the Transfagarasan is closed , until the end of June , maybe if it will be verry hot and the snow melt , it will be open , but we dont know exactley when ???

Transalpina is Open right now , on some section of the road , are just one way is cleared of snow , baut the people over there said that in 1 or 2 weeks , it wil be all clear .



- Maybe if you pass , on Transalpina in 15 - 17 June , maybe you can stop on our Soft Enduro festival , near the Transalpina Road - 25 km , in the mountains ,
We will be there , make pictures , stay on camp fire , eat traditional food , drink and have fun .

Transylvania, Maramures and Bucovina

Bună ziua motocicliști română,

My wife and I will be touring Transylvania, Maramures and Bucovina in June 2013. We will be on a Yamaha XT660R and would like to do some light off road where possible. We last toured Transylvania 10 years ago and had a fantastic time. We are looking for information on "must see" sights in Maramures and Bucovina. Are home stays available in these areas. Any advice would be gratefully received.

Mulțumesc,

Dickyb,

Not much recent traffic on this thread :(

I'm riding around Eastern Romania between 9th and 16 April, likely in the triangle Bucharest/ Brasov/ Danube Delta.

Anyone around for a beer? Look out for a matt-black rat of a Honda Transalp with a British numberplate and more rust than paint ;)
