    Hey guys what's up ?!

    First of all excuse me if my english is not perfect. :freaky

    My name is Cyrille, French motorcycle lover of 21 years old.

    This summer me and 3 stupid friends of mine (yes you have to be a lil' stupid for following me) went from France to Croatia with our supermoto's.

    But we only passed by the mountains.
    :evil

    So this is the Road book of this adventure.

    Link of the Road Book here (click).

    As I think that a video is better than a long explication if you wanna know more about this crazy Roadtrip we did in a short time it's really simple, watch the PROLOGUE (EPISODE 1) video and it will explain everything.
    Don't be shy it's ferry funny by the way!
    :freaky




    Don't worry it's fully translated in English. :lol3
    And it's not me speaking in the video, but my homie Nico !!! ( He did the blog, the road book etc.)

    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________


    Report Videos of the Road Trip are coming as soon as possible (As we are all students it's hard to find some time to edit the videos, and you know it it takes a lot of time...).

    -After the watching the video you can also give an eye to our blog : (articles translated)

    "INTERLAKEN" which means "between the lakes", in Switzerland, beautiful place.

    [​IMG]

    "Furka" and "GRIMSEL" Pass in switzerland, the road looks like a race track (and it is) but it's a little bit to quick for a supermotard, anyway we just drop every bikes we saw behind us. :lol3

    [​IMG]

    "Killing the Stelvio Pass in Italy before it kills you !" That's what my friend Nico said after, cause he crashed in this pass and the bike was totally destructed hopefully he was alright, we were in troube for the rest of the adventure but went in Slovenia to buy an other bike for him, a cheap 660 SMC but damn it works way better than his old XTX !!! :arsenal

    Is it because our bikes don't have knobbies?
    Or maybe because we don't go in the dirt that much that nobody is interested about this thread? :rofl
