    Hi all, I am a "xeno" living on Crete, Greece for 5 years, driving my GS. When time calls for it I hang out with the V-strom club here.

    Any other Beamer-riders from Greece??
    Touring Crete or the mainland this summer??

    Hi,
    I'm no Greek, nor do I live there, but am in Italy. My wife and I are riding from Milan to Athens in August. Any tips or ideas on touring in Greece would be much appreciated
    cheers

    Howdy Champs,

    I'm not greek, but I've been told that my name is greek.

    True?

    And ... they tell me that Australia has the city with the 2nd largest greek population in the world ... Melbourne ... true?

    I studied for 3 months at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. The Greeks :puke1 were pleasant but they were the most hopeless, disorganised and chaotic bunch of incompents I ever met. Sorry.

    Hey, i feel like Greek sometimes :wave χαίρετε γειτονικός

    Την τελευταία εβδομάδα του χρόνου η κυρία της πρώτης τάξης ήθελε να δει τι θυμόταν τα παιδιά στα Μαθηματικά. Έτσι λοιπόν σηκώνει τον Τοτό και του λέει:

    - Tοτό, έχεις 3 καραμέλες και σου παίρνει τις δύο ο αδελφός σου. Πόσες καραμέλες σου έμειναν;

    - Εμένα κυρία, μου έμειναν 3 καραμέλες και του αδελφού μου ένα μαυρισμένο μάτι.

    Hey All, I am a bit north of Greece, in Kosovo. I made a trip down the Thessalaniki last fall. I just picked up a bike and will be doing a bit exploring in Kosovo, and then expanding out to Macedonia and Norther Greece.

    I hope to catch up with some of you sometime.

    G'Day All!

    I'm down in Athens :clap - north near Marousi station Pefki/Iraklio for work. I'm not too game on riding here on the wrong side of the road so soon but love to know where a good weekend spot is to go to to hire and cruise on something like a F650 on some single tracks away from roads/traffic!

    Anyone down here want to catch up or tell me some good hangouts/meetings for adv folxs please do tell.

    Will be here until Nov 23 2007. :1drink

    Cheers,

    Hi to all of you here
    I do not think that riding or adv touring has nothing to do with origin, but since I found out here that some in-ADVRider communities are created, I am initiating the space for Greek origin riders.

    I am from Athens-Greece

    My wife is Greek, but we live in San Diego, and she doesn't ride, so I don't think she counts. But, she makes WICKED spanikopita, moussaka, and pasticcio. And, when I get home bruised and battered she makes me feel good.

    Cheers, and I hope you are having a good time riding in Greece!
