    Probably the last Bosnian ride in this year :D
    Starting on Busko Blato lake, across Blidinje nature park and Rama lake to Kupres area.
    Trans European Trail gpx includes a part of this ride here.
    Not quite a suitable bike for this kind of trails, but what can you do :lol3
    Cheers!

    Few new rides :clap

    Split, Croatia, sunny winter day, without people.


    Cetina river canyon ride, very slippery terrain with a lot of history and no future.

    I went to Croatia in 1985 to see my girlfriend at the time. We spent a week in Trogir. Your videos bring back a lot of memories. I want to go back on a motorcycle. Love your videos.

    Thanks guys, hope to see you ride here some day :clap

    Here is something new. It is funny to see this places during the summer, you would not believe how many people can fit on the beaches :D
    But in winter, it is heaven, when the weather is fine.

    So true! I was there last year in June, mostly TET trail and some dirt/gravel routes we found to Bosnia. For June I found it already quite busy, we avoided the coast as much as we could due to heavy traffic + tarmac . This region is absolutely beautiful, I can imagine in winter it must be the best.

    Yup, winter time is the best time to ride and to visit, Dalmatia and Split (not to mention Dubrovnik :lol3 ) are way too crowded during the summer.
    But there is a catch :lol3 Weather is sometimes quite harsh here. So some flexibility with the dates is good :jack

    This video is recorded a day before my latest video.

    Man I just missed that by few days (unexpected/unscheduled 3 week visit)...Split airport is rough on a good day lol.

    Stop, we never got around to meetn' up last summer but I'm back again this year mid April to end of August and will have a lot more free time.
    Will still like to get together for that beer...and a ride! Bringing my Gixxer this time :)

    New stuff from Dalmatian hinterland, Imotski area is quite interesting with a lot of lakes and holes.
    The Red Lake is 250 meters deep with 250 meters high cliffs over the water, really spooky to stand up there :lol3
