    This year we went to Bosnia and Hertegovina. Last year, alongside Adi we went on a 2 months ride to Mongolia which indirectly meant that this year we have to ride two-up.

    I started putting together the video series, one episode per riding day. Turn on the subtitles, Motokoto (my motorcycle) is telling the story in Romanian.

    Feedback is welcome, after last year's "Mongolia epic" video series, this is my first take at this type of video diary.

    Here is the second video of the series, do subscribe if you like it.



    Feedback is welcome,
    Mihai

    Thank you :)

    Motokoto, Austrian native, decided to tell the story in Romanian but hopefully the subtitles will make up for it.

    New episode was just released!

    In this episode we encounter an alien ship in the woods and start the offroad tracks with a bit of tension from the girls (doh - didn't see that coming)



    Enjoy!

    Fourth video is out. In this episode we visit the abandoned Ċ½eljava air base, ride around the air strips and take a walk in the underground aircraft hangars. In the evening we light up a campfire in the most amazing camping I have ever seen (really).

    Video and daily track available here - https://motorcycling.to/bosnia-herzegovina/una-park-zeljava-air-base

    Enjoy!

    The 5-th episode - the first full offroad day. After only a few kilometers into the track we reach the KTM's limit and decide to turn around. After this we put to the test our navigation skills and manage to completely miss all our objectives of the day.

    The night finds us as one might expect... we get in beds early for a good night's sleep.

    The track we recorded that day can be downloaded here - https://motorcycling.to/bosnia-herzegovina/offroad-to-jajce

    In this episode of our BiH motorcycle adventure we do some trully epic offroad sections.

    From Konjic we start climbing towards the isolated Lukomir village. Rain is - as always our companion. After exiting Lukomir we find ourselves at the bottom of the amazing Bjelasnica peak. 17 epic gnarly hairpins later we reach the summit. The view is absolutely breathtaking. After descending on wet gravel&rocks we head to Sarajevo where we will spend two full "tourist mode on" days.



    Download the track for this day (managed to turn off the tracker for 20 minutes or so so there are 2 tracks): https://motorcycling.to/bosnia-herzegovina/offroad-to-lukomir-and-bjelasnica

    In this episode one of the V-Stroms crashes. Fortunately everyone is ok and we manage to return to Mostar.
