This pic illustrates the extreme speeds that I have reached on the way up



And this one one of the nicest parking lots far and wide.

Remember this pic



This one is few years older but from the same spot. At that time I was wandering with CBF1000.

To continue the previous story. I would like to show you pics of thumper on the plateau but I can not. Riding motor vehicles there is prohibited. So if I wanted to see the plateau I had to walk. It's quite right that way, it is so quiet up there and without humming engines and even walking is pleasant.

On the plateau Velika planina (unspeakable I know - translation would be Big Mountain) is a lot of shepherds huts, many turned into holiday homes.

Some photos are not from this trip.

Depression

After ten days of enforced rest I'm full of anger cursing the heavens and the like. It's easier to imagine what kind of feelings some of you have in the wetter northern areas. Recently I found the fact that in the Norwegian Bergen rains around 300 days a year

And so we wait, me and my faithful companion, when we can swiftly ran to new adventures



This is a nightmare for any decent biker

In the heart of Europe

It's been three years since I've last visited your beautiful country.

I SLO.

Julian Alps are amazing.
Recognized Jezersko immediately.

Can't wait to return.

Thanks for the report.

All of this also applies to your great country. Reading all the excellent reports from the U.S. I have a great desire to drive at least once a part of your beauty. All-day ride to prairie would probably be a real revelation for me.

Finally Heiligenblut (holy blood) , I read a lot about the construction of this road to the GG and Heiligenblut was important logistic centre.


and up we go


Looking at this I felt so small
Well.. Looks like Europe beats us in the scenery department for sure. I would say that most of the pictures you posted so far, are basically postcard worthy.

I'm sure that Mhor Vein sounds nice in gaelic, but believe me that Velika Planina doesn't sound very gently in Slovenian, which is not exactly sounding language


Good to have you along

For such a nice compliment you get a beer if you're ever in these parts of the world.

Cheers

Is that offer good for anyone else?

Thanks for sharing, will see if I can make it to that area of the Alps.

Thanks for your kindly offer enduroO125.

I have big need to post some summer pics from this years travels. It's equally for me as for you. I already miss warm days and we haven't got to the winter yet.

Island of Rab, Adriatic sea. Been there in june with my family. One big family car (for european standards at least) and father on motorcycle behind.







Two alpine lakes Bohinj lake and Laghi di Fusine in the Italian side. First all-day ride with my son in early summer - we took longer shortcut





And first seaside visit in march. Izola/Isola.





This pic is from the Corsica island. We've been there three times, but never with motorcycle. That's pity cos i have some really ass-kicking photos from there. Maybe next travel there..

Of all the places that I've been, the Friuli / Veneto / Alto Adige has got to be the most beautiful area on earth. LOVE the Dolomites.

If you haven't been there, GO.

And Darel, looking at your pictures, you've given me a whole list of new places to visit.
