Introduction Last September my girlfriend M. and I rode our motorcycles from our home in the eastern part of The Netherlands to Albania and back in a little less than 3 weeks. Before departure I decided it was time to share one of our trips on advrider. I've read a lot of ride reports here over the years (thanks everyone for taking the time to write those amazing reports!) and I thought it was high time to give something back. So I created an account, ordered up some decals and did my best to capture the trip on camera. Hopefully you'll enjoy the report! On this trip we rode our Honda Transalps, a 1991 PD06 and a 1999 PD10. Both with hard-luggage on the back (topcase and two side-cases), a handlebar bag and tank panniers for M. and a tank bag for myself on front. And yes: we carry a lot of stuff (even a table). Before departure we only knew that we wanted to spend the majority of the trip in Albania and researched a little of the stuff we would like to see and do in Albania. We like to go on a trip, see what happens and what we feel like doing in the moment. Generally only riding highways to get somewhere fast, other than that preferably local roads and unpaved roads. We camp most of the time, but also stay in the occasional hotel or apartment. We rode from The Netherlands through Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro to Albania. We did a loop in Albania and rode home through Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Germany to The Netherlands. I put a rough overview of our GPS tracks in the map below. In total we rode about 5300 km's (about 3300 miles).
