Father and Son in west Balkan (Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia)

Hello to all ADVrider member.

I’m following the many different RR’s since a time and now time to make my first one about a 6 days ride on the western Balkan. I don’t think you will see much new from this RR beacuse it’s a quite classic route but anyway I will post it maybe some of you will like it. I will not write much but post pics.

A little bit from the background: My Dad 64 years old and me 40 we are both restarters in motorcycle after a long break. Dad driven a Pannonia at end of 60’s but stopped when he got family and now 2 years ago restarted with an aged Kawasaki ER5 – 40 years without dirve but now he has a time to do it. Me never driven a big bike just a smaller ones and bought 2 years ago a Transalp XL650. We made some rides in the past years in the Alps, Dolomiten, northern Croatia and decided to do a 6 days trip in mid of April to Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia.
Some keywords of the trip: Low budget, self service as much possible , no offroad due to Er5, tight timing, not much time just 6 days.
The route: Starting from Hungary Székesfehérvár, along the Croatian cost up to the Montenegro boarder. Continue in Montenegro until Albanian border and turn to the montains Durmitor. Back route through Mostar, Banja Luka to Hungary.

Quite clear driving through Croatia via Zagreb and Karlovac and touching the croatian coast at Senj. From here the real trip started as we never were with bike southern than Senj.

Senj city

We are an old style guys without GPS so let's see the map

The costal road was very nice to drive no summer trafic lot of nice place to stop to enjoy the landscape.

City of Omis

The day ended not far before Zadar in a camp.
Some evening lights.

The morning breakfast and ready to go

Next stop in Trogir for a short walk, realy nice old town but I can imagine the traffic jam during the summer around the bridge.

Another stop in Makarska – Dad enjoy the sun

Arriving to Dubrovnik at the end of day 2. We spent a night in a camping.

There is a good bus connection from the camp to the old town so I spent some hours there meantime dad prepared the tent and dinner.
The city center was already crowded with tourists but the city is a „must see”

to be continued soon....
