    Fell in love with Croatia last year during my first visit. Drove Zagreb to Dubrovnik and wished I was riding the whole time. Plitvice lake was amazing, like the rest of the country. nice people too. Best coffee in Europe was Zagreb, and best sea food was Mali Stone. Thanks for sharing.

    How old are those structures?
    I'm guessing very old.

    Not very old, it was built in 15th century as a defense from Ottoman empire.

    Awesome RR and pics. I was through Croatia and lived outside of Tuzla in sadder times,'96-'97 with IFOR. But it was still a beautiful country with great people. Lots of mud thou! :evil Have been really considering coming back and renting a bike and getting lost for a month or so! Awesome stuff! Thanks!

    Check out my new web site www.adv-tracks.com
    It is a gps tracks sharing service for adv/dual-sport/enduro bikes.
    I made it for my Web programming class, but I decided to make
    it alive and give it a try. It could be useful. It is not a commercial web site, and I don't know will it be, haven't figured that out yet.

    I will upload most of the tracks from this thread, as soon as I finish testing.

    Greetings inmates :clap

    wow, what a great series of ride reports. I love the pics, and can tell from them that your riding ability is increasing. the trails in the most recent posts are way tougher than in the beginning.

    that place looks much different than when I was there in 97/98. I too was there with IFOR/SFOR with the NATO troops. I would have loved to gone where you show, but they warned us of the landmines everywhere.

    thanks for sharing your journey!

    Thank you. mr. seabee1
    Now we know where the mines are, that was a big problem back then when you were here.

    Yesterday we had a little ride in Dalmacija region/ Croatia. 250 km total. We started from Split, and followed river Cetina upstream to its spring. Then we took Napoleons road through Krčić canyon to Krčić fall. Great views. From Knin to Drniš accros Promina mountain. We did not make it home by offroad because of the dark :norton

    Great ride, a bit hard for heavier bikes.
