Hello DickyB, I've been reading your reports for a few days and finally I registered to this site. Everything about this topic is really great man! All the photos, 4-legged and 2-legged friends, bikes, roads, trails, adventures, landscapes, everything! :) I read it in 3 days and it really affected my performance in work hours in a bad way You are living in the part of Turkey that I love most, and also especially when you bought the bike that I am planning to buy in a few months (CRF) I felt a special connection to the topic heehe I live and work in Ankara, the capital, but we have a summer house in Antalya, near Kumluca. (It's on the Lycian Road, coastal side of Kumluca and very close to the Gelidonya Lighthouse near Adrasan). Actually I think that you went that region at one point, when you were riding to Gagai. The village of our summer house is called Karaöz, surrounded with mountains on 3 side, and sea with one side. You go there from either a sea side road (Lycian Road), or a mountain road from Mavikent. All of the roads are great for riding. If you reach there, pass the place and continue on the Lycian Road following the coast line, there is a place called 'Melanippe' (Korsan Koyu in Turkish, which means Pirate's Retreat or Pirate's Cove) and I think you should see that place. Crystal clear and perfectly still water even when the sea is raging. Melanippe used to be one of the 9 or 10 safe havens for Cilician Pirates in Eastern Med Sea, and there are ruins everywhere, hidden in forest. If you pass Melanippe and continue further, there will be a fork in the road, following the trail on the left going up the mountain, you'll reach to the lighthouse, a great place to chill out. If you don't turn to the trail that climbs the lighthouse and continue on the road directly after Melanippe, you'll reach Adrasan (Çavuşköy) Ah, good old days, I used to travel like a mountain goat on my BWs 100 scooter there But long summer holidays ended after I graduated from the university last year, and now business life is killing my soul By the way, I want to thank Yamaha engineers for building such a scooter, it was damn bulletproof, rock solid So, here are two photo of the lighthouse; One of the islands there has a fresh water source on it And this is the road and the sign to the lighthouse. But I'm not sure if this sign is when coming from the Karaöz direction or Adrasan direction. This is the light house from the sea side; you see the tip of Cape Gelidonya here. Here, I found a photo taken at Gelidonya lighthouse by an award winning sky/star photographer Tunc Tezel :) On the map; And here are some photos of Karaöz; In this angle of view below, Melanippe, Gelidonya lighthouse and Adrasan are on the left direction, Finike and Kas are on the right direction (2 hours of riding distance) The road to Gelidonya and Adrasan is hidden in the forest there, on the mountain seen in distance below; And this is Melanippe, and Karaöz behind. I couldn't find a photo taken from the sea looking to the cove, but it's a really interesting and peaceful place (except Sundays, people swarm that place on Sundays :)) The roads are also great there. A hideout for great 'mangal's, lots of efes and great chillout, surrounded with rocks, ruins, Pinus Brutia, and crickets chanting. If you give the names of the places that I mention here to your local fellas there, I'm sure that they know these places so you can ride together to travel if you guys want. Also, people in Karaöz are great :) Since the place is on Lycian road there are many tourists passing by, and also there are people from different European countries moved and living there, you will usually find someone who speaks English and help you guys with the directions In addition to these, there is a road from Karaöz to a place called 'Tozluk' there. Tozluk is a place on the top of the mountain right next to Karaöz, and it is used as both a forest fire watch post above the area, a radio and gsm signal station, and as a take off point for paragliders. It has been a long time since I last climbed there, but I remember that people were able to go there with 4x4s, so I guess you can ride there too. I couldn't find lots of photos taken from that place, but I know that it would be a great adventure going there. Here's a photo, this will give the idea I guess; And as I finish my post, here is a map of Antalya in August as a bonus I will be there in Adrasan on 12th of October, so if you guys have a chance to ride to the region I told you about, I would be glad to grab some beers I hope I can get my CRF250L one day and ride the hell out of Turkish Med By the way, I can send you the directions to these places if you want. Cheers man, keep up the great reports, looking forward to reading them!
