Jim's on FB, must be doing fine
So, last week when I was commuting back from work I lost my tank bag at 120kph in dense traffic after that got a flat rear tire. So for that day i was done with riding.
The bike is now in my shed waiting for Some TLC, a new tire is needed in the rear and i'm replacing my front one as wel.
I like the TCK80, but the mitas E09 has my attention to.
For spring 2014 i'm planning a trip to the south of europe, all by myself or with a friend, does somebody got any trip tips for Spain, portugal, italy, swiss, austria hungary, etc?
Try Regionals. Lots of advice usually.
If you're planing your trip trough Slovenia, I can give you some details, if you are interested.
Well thanks! But i actually have no plan, the plan is to get on my bike, leave the gps at home and drive till i'm out of money. I got 3 weeks off from work
So i think, the Balkan is a great option, as long the weather is ok.
I'm running MeFo Explorers on my AT and have really enjoyed them so far. Pretty good dual sport tires (at least for Colorado).
hi, don't exclude Romania from your map...have everything , good roads, bad roads, dual adventures check images on google ;transalpina ;transfagarasan
Yeah heard about that to, how is romania when it comes to camping grounds and hostel/hotels etc? Romania looks nice to, i was once in hungary, and ukraine, but did not went to romania yet!
How is the weather in may/june?
Romania - a wonderful place
not expensive hotels and cheap campings make it easy to travel
don 't stay at campings unless you really want to.. use B&B , are nice and cheap. 20-30 euro per room. Last year i met a guy from NL ( bmw r 100 PD)and we went to a bike meeting together . If you decide to ride the fish (romania) i'll be happy to give some tips
so, you like it in Romania. glad to hear that. i was in UA -krivoi rog..long time ago. not by bike ,with a car. I just bought my AT rdo4 1990 from Italy and is a lot to work on it. How is with moto parts for AT in UA?
we were on Transfagarasan road, Bikaz, Brasov, Bran, Peles castle
i can not remember all the places now but we like it much
I was in Romania twice and would gladly repeat the trip on AT to Transalpina and other trail places (last two times I was on suzuki bandit with my wife)
There are a lot of interesting places in Ukraine except Krivoy Rog and all roads contain adventure))
I would be happy to show interesting trail roads and beautiful places in our country
We`ve got the local honda diller and several guys who import spare parts, and also we`ve got ebay.co.uk (five days shipping to Ukraine)
Good to hear my friend!
first time i ride Transfagarasan was back in 97'...transalpina just a part , not complete. The Sebes-Obarsia Lotrului part is not so good road but AT must go well.. Maybe we go together next year. What do you thk about Magadan trip? i want to go for a very long time but is expensive. In a few years maybe..
So tonight i will be leaving to DOHA Qatar to visit a friend, my Bike stays at home (only allowed 60lbs of luggage ) but overthere we gonna rent Some bikes or quads to raid the desert!
This weekend was held in Almeirim, Portugal, the first R3 - RUMO RALLY RAID, a rally filled with roadbook navigation, organized by the experienced Luís Lourenço, which for those unfamiliar is the adventurer that has just came from a very long trip in the south america in his Africa Twin, having also lots of experience in Africa and so on.
This was a test event to see how they ran things, the organization, roadbooks ... and everything was beyond perfect. Roadbook millimetrically well taken, using directions in degrees for confirmation so that we could follow the correct path, starting and finishing controls scattered around the stage, riders starting starting apart from each other every minute ... fabulous. Saturday was 217 kms long stage, on Sunday a more technical stage of 80 kms.
Full report and an awesome video in our website, emAzimute
REPORT - R3 RUMO RALLY RAID
I would also like to specially thank our "film maker" friend Mário Bock (Mário Bock) for a great video!
If you haven't spent some time on Twinie's site
Grab a beer (or two) and be prepared to get immersed in AT overload.
It's very professionally done and has both great photos and videos. The video camera positions and really creative and very well done. The scenery is astonishing.
Thanks, Twinie, for sharing.
Did anyone post this 397lb Africa Twin? - http://www.autoevolution.com/news/can-you-believe-this-is-an-africa-twin-photo-gallery-67968.html
Thanks so very much for that kind of feedback mate
We joined forces so we could have that site and we do the reports because its something we really love doing, so to come here and read something like that is really great, thanks again.
About the scenery, its all PORTUGAL, you should all come and visit, its heaven on earth for offroad bikers
