How would you rate the road conditions in Bulgaria, Romania too, if you have been there? I like progressive riding, so a good surface is important to me.
the main roads are all real good. the fun (back) roads are a crapshoot, but most are pretty good. RO & BG are fun, lots of history, nice people, and pretty cheap to travel. Let me know if you go, and I'll give ya some tips on places to go

And you can always pop by in Austria (if I am around)...

no video yet, my videographer went back to Bulgaria.

However, my seat is Finished, Grigory, (who did my shovelhead seat/bags last year) did it for me.

its enroute from VA now, but heres some pics. I wanted it in suede, more comfy for long hot days. Theres a plastic membrane underneath, to keep the foam dry. he also made a vinyl cover for it, to help keep it dry in the rain.

I love how it turned out. The DIRTSTER on the back was a surprise, but I furnished the patch for the front

Doug, that seat is the shizznitz! That guy is great. I loved the one last year, and love this one.

He does great work from small detail like last year's bike to understated and simple styling that is over the top for this year.
