    A great report.:deal
    Congrats you, your girl friend and also your dad; especially your dad. :clap
    I remember my dad. He was a very adventurous man(unfortunately we lost it in 2005). Your dad very adventurous too. I wish him a long life. And I respect him. Obviously, he is a great guy.
    I was read this report for a couple of days, and I finished. I enjoyed a lot.

    Have nice day and trip you, your girl friend and your great dad. And of course happy new years.

    Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm fortunate to have a great wife and father – I have my father to thank for getting me into motorcycles in the first place at a very young age, and my wife for encouraging my passion even more. Sounds like your father was a great man. Safe travels in Turkey, I would love to visit your home country one day.

    Happy new year!

    Ofcourse, she is your wife. My mistake sorry.
    One day, you and your wife must come to Turkiye, yes. My country have a great historical, cultural and touristic geography. Safe travels for you in the world. ;)

    A place that I told Erik about. It's about 5kms east of Storo on SS240. You'll cross over a small bridge, and if you look north, you'll see the waterfall through the trees. The last time I was by in 2013, they had roped off the wide spot that could accommodate a few bikes. Nothing that couldn't be circumvented, but they may have made more permanent arrangements since. :(

    I'll PM you with the Google Earth KMZ file.

    Ah yes, that gem of a spot. Good to have it set in your GPS, as it's very easy to miss when navigating through the hairpins.
