    Have loads of fun doing your trip. Sounds like a great ride already.

    Make sure you leave Warsaw with a new set of tires and if the Transfegarasan is the same road the guy's of "Top Gear" did on their BBC tv show I hope the road is better than it was last year. The part you see on TV is great, but the other side of the mountain is quite a handfull of the worst road I've seen in years.

    I hope you post loads of pictures of your trip. I'm looking forward to it..

    Pretty girls with cute accents on cool bikes. Is this a great universe or what?

    Love the Vanvans. I'm guessing you'll be traveling light?
