    I would like to do France/Spain & into Morocco over 4-5 weeks- its just finding the time!

    Where did you get the insurance for Serbia? I have struggled to find any UK insurer who will cover it. Although I believe you can purchase it near the border for cheap enough

    Brilliant.

    So many people equate miles with GOOD.

    Olde Fartes like me know In Depth is good. Slow down and look at what you are passing through.

    I have to say that Switzerland and Italy are my passions.

    No-one does hills like the Swiss. A Swiss hill is a delight.

    Then Italy. 2000 years ago they had running water and proper toilets. It's a country that has to be seen. The Guzzi Museum has to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Then there is Ducati, Ferrari to see and glorious beaches of Rimini.

    Hi,
    Sorry hadn't been on here much, yes i did make it back alive. I will be taking some time to make a blog with reports from all my trips soon but for now heres a rough outline of the route.

    4 weeks covering 6,000miles

    Now I shall just decide what adventures next year may bring. Current thought is a Baltic tour anyone done this?? Or a Spain tour. Thought about Turkey but it's the time to get there/or logistics of having to ship the bike.

    Cheers

    No real problems, infact you find the people in some of these eastern countries and in fact very friendly and welcoming. Of course the further you go the corruption (and poverty) is evident, you just have to know the best way to deal with it and nothing will be a problem for you!

    Bike is 97' Yamaha TDM 850
