I wish you all the best on that endeavour, looks awesome.
Awesome route! I plan on doing something close to your 2006 ride but with Ireland, UK, and western Russia thrown in. I'm guessing 10k miles in 2 months. Maybe we'll meet along the road.
I haven't picked my exact dates yet but I'd really like to go to a MotoGP race. The likely dates are:
Assen 28 June
Sachsenring 13 July
Brno 17 August.
It would be cool to meet some ADVers at a race.
Merci beaucoup !
It will be a nice trip too !
I plan to be 1 month earlier in the surroundings of Brno. For Assen and Sachsenring, almost 2 months earlier.
Now this is how to celebrate getting old !
I hit 50 this year and have a much shorter trip planned. But then I have another ten years to persaude my work colleagues (and wife) that I need to follow your example for my 60th
Have a great ride and stay safe
You pass me in the UK at manchester, lets grab a beer and if you need any maintenance done let me know.
Sure you'll get it !
Many thanks for the wishes.
I'll try to report here as much as possible.
For the moment, the bike is at my brother, who is my personal mechanic ;-)
Thank you very much.
With pleasure for the beer (without maintenance, I hope), if you could come along my way. I will ride there normally on the sixth of April.
You can have a look on the planned routes here.
I wish you celebrate the hell out of your tour! I´m working in a motorcycle shop in Tallinn /Estonia, so if you need any kind of assistance, just give me a shout.
Being a fellow adventurer, it gives me joy to help out other riders.
I'll need assistance in Tallin on the 24th of June, I think. But it seemed everything will be closed at this date ? If it's so, then I'll stay one day more. I think that I'll normally only need the change of oil and filter. I'll post here regularly to give news and send photos, then if you follow it, we will be able to contact us for potential meeting. Anyway, thank's a lot for your help's proposal.

bonsoir Macadam. Je vis maintenant à Budapest et suis à ta disposition pour tout problème /entretien /aide / hébergement dans la région... de fin juin à mi aout je ne serai pas sur budapest mais vers le lac balaton... N'hésite pas à faire le détour, ca vaut le coup ... On a même le wifi perdus dans la fôrte, grâce un répeteur et tesco est ouvert 24/24 pour les collations :)
d('ici là j'aurai fait un trip roumanie /bulgarie /turquie et aurait sans doute quelques bons tuyaux... (mais ne compte pas sur moi pour les lieux touristiques, je préfère les rencontres dans des endroits plus authentiques :)
Merci beaucoup pour ton message. Je passerai près de Budapest aux alentours de la mi-juillet. Toujours preneur de bons tuyaux, je ne cherche pas spécialement les sites touristiques : c'est la route qui me plait par-dessus tout, réseau secondaire, voire même tertiaire, loin de la foule.
Great trip planned there sir.
Keep a note of our details and if you need any help if and when you are passing through our area feel free to give us a call. Cold beers always in the fridge, Biker garage has most of the tools you may need and in the event of a more serious problem, we can get your bike in our minibus.
I'm really jealous. The most I am going to squeeze in is a 4 day trip to Croatia.
Hi Ali, many thanks for the adress and proposal. Dont be jealous : one day, you'll get it also !
I dropped mine was and manages to get it up by myself pretty fast.
That was on a paved (be it slippery and muddy) road though.
So. Come back here to give some news. Less than ten days before departure, I think I'm almost ready.
Fist of all, the bike had to be prepared. My brother did it. And as a preparation, I didn't ask him to put pretty special things on it. No, just complete revision, just change what has to be done, nothing more.
My brother was not very happy, because he had first to clean the bike, because he hates to work upon a dirty one, and as I almost never wash my bikes, he always has to do it !
The complete report is to read on my web site.
But, sorry, It's all in french language, perhaps not so bad with on line translaters !
There was also some work to stengthen the topcase's support, which was really ready to break. I've a nephew who is iron's man in the family.
He made it really robust.
But I keep the old ugly top case, it will be enough for "Serparti".
Perhaps some explanation about the name I gave to my small bike.
"Serparti" is a wordplay.
The pronunciation of "Serparti", in french, corresponds exactly to the words "c'est reparti", which means "here we go again"...
It's just because I had a two years break in my motorbike's life, and then I buyed this one after that pause !
So, now, you'll understand me when I'll speak about Serparti.
Last week, I received a great gift at home.
Bering, a french motorbike clothings specialist and well renowned by us in France, decided to participate in my Europa 2014 tour. They sent me motorcycle jacket, jean and gloves of top quality, and I want to thank them a lot for that !
Unfortunately, the Jean is too small.
Or perhaps am I too fat ?...
I hope to receive the good one very soon.
The complete report, in french, on the usual website.
About the red tape (paper work ?), the things are now ready.
I received the famous russian Visa. Gret !
I received the international driving license. It was painful to get it, because of our french really and totally ugly administration, but... ok, in the pocket !
And everything is clear with insurance, assistance, european health insurance card, and so on.
The whole report in french, as usual.
