Bikers and bikes:
Safran on a Honda Transalp
Mirek on a Yamaha TT600R
Me (Maciek) on a Yamaha TT600R
Started on 01.07.2006 from Gdansk
(me and Safran) and after 777km we arrived to the Polish-Ukrainian border where we met Mirek. This evening we have been eating “pielmienie” and drinking vodka in Lvov
The next day, after seeing Lvov
we jumped on our bikes in the direction of Karpaty mountains.
The plan was to do offroad in the Gorgany and Czarnohora mountains (Ukraine
), and then follow the Karpaty mountains in Rumania
till the Transfogarian road and back to Poland
. Time: 1 week for Ukraina and 1 week for Rumania
In the Gorgany mountains we wanted to follow a path of the old Polish-Rumanian border. After 50m Safran's transalp and Mirek's TT were down
It was quite a difficult offroad - specially for the Transalp.
Lot of riding in deep mud and rivers.
The path was going up and down. The Transalp too
After few days we have arrived to the Czernohora mountains:
and we have almost drove our bikes to the highest peek in Ukraina - Hoverla:
After one week we have arrived to Rumenia:
Funny cementary, with pictures of what was the person doing in life or how did the person die (for example a picture of a girl being hit by a train):
We took an old train and had a beautifull ride in the mountains:
This train is used to take the wood from the valley, cos there are no roads.
There are also private trains with the tops from a car (usually with german plates);
Only one puncture for me during this trip:
And 2 punctures for Transalp:
Apart a bike a biker needs sex:
and to drink
...after you fill like you should go back riding:
Here the transalp clutch sad ENOUGH! He could run maximum like 60 km/h...
...and needed to be pushed to start in offroad; Transalp became a little depressed:
so its 2:0 for the TTRs
So from now the Transalp had tu use mainly gravel roads:
...but not the TTs
The clutch in the transalp was getting worst and worst so Safran started ride in the direction of Poland.
Myself and Mirek wanted to do one more offroad and the Transfogarian road.
Once we found a nice path which was used in some kinde of enduro rally (ktm redbull or enduromania) cos there were ktm signs all the way:
