Great scenery. I was in Bosnia (and Croatia & Slovenia) 4 years ago and I can't wait to go back sometime. Beautiful countries, great food, awesome people.

Here are the rest of the pics for this ride.



Old tomb stones - Real old!





Leaving a National Park in Bosnia.







It is good to stay on the road in parts of Bosnia and Croatia.



Coming down into Jablanica.



Bridge in Konjic - Konjic is a great place to pick up a rafting tour on the Neretva river.

Nice report - first one to boot.

I was in the area last Fall. The roads, countryside, towns, people, food, etc. excellent.

We rode from Ljubljana to Plitvice, then on the Dubrovnik. The bit of Bosnia-Herzegovina we rode through tempted me to peel away from the group and head inland, but it'll have to wait until another trip.

You're lucky to have this area as your playground.

Here is a half day ride to Lukomir.

My sister and her husband were visiting us. Kevin and I went for a ride to Lukomir.

Here is a link about the village.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lukomir

It is about an hour outside Sarajevo, beyond the Bjelasnica ski mountain.

Pulling into the village of Lukomir.





Looking down into Rakitnica canyon, 800 meters below the village.

This is at the edge of the village.







Here are some buildings in the village.

















These boys were very curious about the bikes.



This is the area leading up to the village. It was nice riding, but very rocky.

I would have been better with more aggressive tires on the DR.

The Yamaha and Kawasaki handled the loose rocks better; I would not trade the DR for either!







My brother-in-law Kevin on the Kawasaki he rented.



Me on my DR.



Moamer and Kevin - I went to get some water.



In case you are thirsty, here is the water!



This was a good, but fairly short, ride. We did not have as much time as we would have liked.

Do you happen to know where one can hire a dual sport in the region?

I don't know of any place here to rent bikes. The machine we got is not normally rented. That place offers tours of the mountain with quads but they let us take the owners Kawasaki because they were short on time and the bike was faster.

thanks for the wonderful ride report
we appreciate that you shared with us
your thread illustrates one of the main reasons we all love this fine community: getting to see parts of the world to which most of us can never travel.

well done
one thing: i wish you hadn't made your SECOND set of images so much smaller than the first

thanks again
