    Hi, I have just come across this RR from Croatia, pictures are outstanding, especially interesting are those of Makarska Riviera, taken from Hvar, thank you for sharing. Nice bike btw, Baghira isn't that popular outside Germany, but looks like a really decent trail bike.

    @marizaga
    oh yes, the bike MZ baghira wasn´t a big seller. unfortunately. it was sold in the states too, but 80! pieces in 2008 (last year) wasn`t enough to save the company from insolvency


    i was in slovenja and nothern croatia again last august with a few friends of mine. this time we use heavy metal. BMW GS and Triumph Tiger (mine)
    want to see some pics?

    Ok, here are some pics from the trip in Aug 2013

    first we rode from Munich to an alpine cabin at the austrian/italian border, stay there overnight and crossing the border on unpaved road next morning.

    first stop in val di resia / Italy

    [​IMG]

    then riding a gravelroad along the slovenian/italian border called slovenian borderline road. was build in Worldwar I, a hundred years ago.

    Istria a peninsula in Croatia welcomes the riders with dusty heat an small historic villages

    [​IMG]

    then at least entering a small campground on the island Cres. a lot of hippielike people there having fun, driving children around with an old 2stroke MZ combination

    [​IMG]

    next day is the offroad stage with our big bikes.

    but after all, we get a huge gratification. a really big plate of meat, french fries, ajvar, onions and a lot of icecold beer.

    [​IMG]

    meat is really cheap in croatia, instead of fish, we paid only 50$ for four.

    unfortunytely this was a short trip and we had to leave. back we cross Istria from south to north on the smallest roads we find.

    from Trget

    [​IMG]

    to a small city, called groznjan, entered in late 60ties by artists and hippies to rescue the historic city from destruction. now its a city with no cars, quiet and with nice views

    [​IMG]

    on our last day we try the fishplate, it was very delicious and very.....expensive

    mussels
