First of all, hello to everybody. This is going to be my first ride report on this forum and I want to warn you that english is not my first language, so if there will be same mistakes or misunderstandings, please don't be mad on me! I read a lots of rider reports on this forum and I finally decide to write my own report. Trip which I am oing to describe I have done this summer, and I take a similar tour like mr. Linza, which is also member of this forum and as I saw he describes his tour few month ago. But, I will descibe this tour on my own way, and I will try to put as many picures as I can upload. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o> I am driving Kawa Z750 which is 1 year old, and it was my longest trip which I have done with this motorcycle. I started this trip with few friends of mine, there were driving different type of motorcycle. Plan was to visit Dubrovnik, Međugorje, Mostar and Sarajevo. At that time in Sarajevo one of local motocycle club (MC Walter) was celebrate its 10 anniversary so we decide to join then at the end of our journey. So, let's begin... This is a map of my tour: I was really overloaded when I start my tour. We start trip early in the morning and our first stop (after about 4 hours of driving) was at the Adriatic coast near Makarska. We were stoped by firemans and policeman, because at that time there were a lot of fire at a coast. We continued our trip, and at the end of the first day we decide to take a rest period (one night with lots of beer ) in a small village and small harbour named Slano. <o></o> About Slano Slano is situated at the end of a beautiful, deep 2 km long inlet, represents an attractive resort due to its many pebble beaches, rich vegetation and mild climate. Slano is a village in the bay of the same name. It is 30 km northwest of Dubrovnik, with population 512 settlers. Farming, olive-growing, viniculture, fruit-growing, tobacco, herbs (sage, laurel, woodworm), fishing and tourism are chief occupations. Slano lies on the main road to Dubrovnik. The area of Slano was populated already in the prehistoric period (ruins of a hill-fort and tumuli on the nearby hills) and in the ancient times (a Roman castrum on the hill Gradina; early Christian sarcophagi, today exhibited in front of the Franciscan church). In 1399. Slano fell under the rule of the Dubrovnik Republic; once the duke's seat (duke's palace, reconstructed at the end of the 19th c.). Next day we continued our trip to Dubrovnik. About Dubrovnik (http://www.dubrovnik-guide.net/) The today's name of Dubrovnik is derived from the Croatian word Dubrava, which means oak woods as, in the past, oak trees surrounded Dubrovnik. The Latin name Ragusa - Rausa, in use until the 15th century, originated from the rock (lat. Lausa - meaning rock) where the first settlement was established. Dubrovnik was founded in the first half of the 7th century by a group of refugees from Epidaurum (today's Cavtat). They established their settlement at the island and named it Laus. Opposite of that location, at the foot of Srđ Mountain, Slavs developed their own settlement under the name of Dubrovnik (named by "Dub" - type of wood). The settlements were separated by a channel which was filled in 12th century, present Placa or Stradun, and since than the two settlements have been united. At that time the city walls started to be built as a protection from different enemies ( Arabs, Venetian, Macedonians, Serbs, etc.), who wanted to conquer Dubrovnik...rest yo can find on web page, I just put some copy/paste text.
