Our ride ends practically here. We reached asphalt in Kavousi again without any incidents and arrived in Herakleion (Ηράκλειο) some time later. This is part of the map shows most of our ride this day.





Well, we couldn't get our bikes muddy enough but we encountered many hard roads and got them a bit dusty at least. And of course we had an excellent time while doing that, right Yannis?

And some statistics from this ride:
Km's ridden: 250 of which ca 70 dirt roads
Average speed 44km/hr
Average consumption for
Silver F800GS : 5.2lt/100km
Yellow F800GS: 5.9lt/100km

Hopped you enjoyed this ride as much as we did. Give me a few days rest and we can start the next one, but this time it will be less riding and more hiking while we explore some VERY old monastery ruins
Till next time then

Wonderful report.
Been only once, shortly, in Crete; without opportunity for visiting around.
Big fan of island though. Kazantzakis one of my favorite authors (ho kapitan Michalis, to name one).
Hope you will post some more reports of your inspiring rides.

I'm on my way

Hi Markas,
thanks for posting this great report. Crete must be a fantastic place to live, as shown by your stunning photos.
I've just checked the ferry prices from Piraeus, very reasonable, so Crete is on my list.
See you in 2015.
Thanks,
Mark.

Great Ride Report Markas. I once gave a verbal book report about Crete
with information sourced from a National Geographic magazine.
This was in 1965; I still remember how much my classmates
enjoyed hearing about all of the splendor of Crete
and your RR brought back fond memories.

Thank you all for your kind words. I have given up this thread cos it's kinda hard to write a decent ride report in English. I will try to revive it, but not with the monastery i promised. At least not for now. I will revive it with my latest ride, a memorable one i wanted to share with the advrider community.

So, here it comes:





THE RESCUE OF THE BITCH!
