Well thanks! But i actually have no plan, the plan is to get on my bike, leave the gps at home and drive till i'm out of money. I got 3 weeks off from work

So i think, the Balkan is a great option, as long the weather is ok.

I like the TCK80, but the mitas E09 has my attention to.

For spring 2014 i'm planning a trip to the south of europe, all by myself or with a friend, does somebody got any trip tips for Spain, portugal, italy, swiss, austria hungary, etc?

Cheers!
I'm running MeFo Explorers on my AT and have really enjoyed them so far. Pretty good dual sport tires (at least for Colorado).

Romania - a wonderful place
not expensive hotels and cheap campings make it easy to travel

don 't stay at campings unless you really want to.. use B&B , are nice and cheap. 20-30 euro per room. Last year i met a guy from NL ( bmw r 100 PD)and we went to a bike meeting together . If you decide to ride the fish (romania) i'll be happy to give some tips

Hi)
we were on Transfagarasan road, Bikaz, Brasov, Bran, Peles castle
i can not remember all the places now but we like it much
I was in Romania twice and would gladly repeat the trip on AT to Transalpina and other trail places (last two times I was on suzuki bandit with my wife)

There are a lot of interesting places in Ukraine except Krivoy Rog and all roads contain adventure))
I would be happy to show interesting trail roads and beautiful places in our country

We`ve got the local honda diller and several guys who import spare parts, and also we`ve got ebay.co.uk (five days shipping to Ukraine)

first time i ride Transfagarasan was back in 97'...transalpina just a part , not complete. The Sebes-Obarsia Lotrului part is not so good road but AT must go well.. Maybe we go together next year. What do you thk about Magadan trip? i want to go for a very long time but is expensive. In a few years maybe..

R3 - Rumo Rally Raid

This weekend was held in Almeirim, Portugal, the first R3 - RUMO RALLY RAID, a rally filled with roadbook navigation, organized by the experienced Luís Lourenço, which for those unfamiliar is the adventurer that has just came from a very long trip in the south america in his Africa Twin, having also lots of experience in Africa and so on.

This was a test event to see how they ran things, the organization, roadbooks ... and everything was beyond perfect. Roadbook millimetrically well taken, using directions in degrees for confirmation so that we could follow the correct path, starting and finishing controls scattered around the stage, riders starting starting apart from each other every minute ... fabulous. Saturday was 217 kms long stage, on Sunday a more technical stage of 80 kms.

Full report and an awesome video in our website, emAzimute

REPORT - R3 RUMO RALLY RAID

I would also like to specially thank our "film maker" friend Mário Bock (Mário Bock) for a great video!

AT guys,

If you haven't spent some time on Twinie's site

http://www.emazimute.com/

Grab a beer (or two) and be prepared to get immersed in AT overload.

It's very professionally done and has both great photos and videos. The video camera positions and really creative and very well done. The scenery is astonishing.

Thanks, Twinie, for sharing.
