    Quick update, Bacon and I have made it through France, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia and a very short detour through Austria to Croatia. He wants to let you know he's quite at ease in my tank bag and prefers this over the alternate method of transportation (details later when I post his report, I have only this pic on my phone)

    These signs are on the common motorbike roads warnings riders of the dangers of twisty roads. As if we don't know :D
    They were color coded (green, yellow, red, purple), I have no idea if that relates to the relative danger of the road ahead.
