    Ooooo Yeeesss.,.,
    You work., you work.,.,you work.,.,
    even if you like your job., and be creative with it.,
    everybody need to load the batteries.,.
    one of my favorites ways.,is a good company.
    ,friends.,
    motorcycles.,
    and escape from city lights.,.,
    out there in the countryside.,.

    [​IMG]

    everywhere out there.,
    where are not to many people in a small area.,


    who said.,.,?

    when the people are to close they hearts go far away.,
    and when the people are far away they hearts coming closer.,.,,

    [​IMG]

    today modern monster citys
    suck our energy like a vampire.,

    its 7 o;clock around the rock.,
    in the morning.,
    and i feel.,., like a small child hapiness and joy .,
    boots.,
    cloves.,
    helmets.,
    and all the ''space'' equipment .,explorer.,.,
    its stand allready since last night.,


    [​IMG]

    i begin alone .,
    after became two.,
    three.,

    [​IMG]

    and final.,

    .after rain .,.everything became more clear.,
    not only outside .,
    but
    i like the feeling inside my mind.,.,
    humans forget the best ways to dissolve their problems.,
    they stay like a standing rock inside they minds.,
    some prefer to go to the churches.,
    some others run at the psychoanalyst.,

    [​IMG]

    this silly and small most of the time problems .,
    seperate us from reality.,
    and the real connection with mother earth.,

    i find my therapy .,on the road.,
    ride my motorcycle., there.,.,. outside.,.,

    [​IMG]

    with the other friends.,
    the meeting point is on the river.,.,he.,he.,

    [​IMG]

    at the first day i ride about 500km.,


    you can see the ride here but not all.,
    because some roads not exist
    on google maps.,

    .,
    .,.,[​IMG]

    .,.,the night come quickly at the winter time.,
    we stay to sleep.,
    and sat to eat.,
    at the small taverna, at the village Epiniana
    .,.,near warmly of the fire.,,
    .companion with a good wine.,
    travel and ride stories .,.,
    laughter..,
    , and a lot of fun.,.,.,

    and in the morning .,we feel like a birds.,
    no headaches.,no stomachpains
    for there you know if the alcool ...you drink are.,good.,.,.,

    [​IMG]

    across of the village Epiniana you can look this mountain top called
    the sleepining lady of Epiniana.,
    because is look like the head of the woman looking the heaven.,.,

    [​IMG]

    this church is at Agrafa small village.,
    this villages here is famuous for its complete autonomy.,
    and the reason is .,the hard way to go .,


    the word Agrafa means unwritten..,
    ,because the Ottomans empire can not conquer
    this region..and population here.,

    if somebody want to read more .,

    ,
    [​IMG]

    the rest of the day ,.,.
    i remember it like a dream,.,

    the feeling of flying.,

    I'm a straight up middle of America kinda a guy, but I love Greece. Good peoples, nice beaches, and great food. When I lived there twice before I always had a motorcycle or a scooter. One of my favorite memories of Athens are watching the motorcycles line up at a red-light, then it turns green and the race is on for all the cycles. Also, the memories of riding around in a taxi with the bazuki music in the summer with the windows down. Good place to live life. Chronya Poll La. Yasou!!!

    Beautiful ride report and video.
    I feel that spirit of motorcycling that
    you have expressed. The freedom.
    The escape. The restoration.
