Hello,

Was on TF. hwy. last June with wifey in cage. Tried to rent bike in town but was told road was closed till July 1.
Called hotel at Balea Lake at the top and they said that the road was officially opened July 1, but it was opened early.
What a road. Both sides are beautiful. The tunnel at the top only had one lane opened do to snow. Coming from the north, where the photos are mostly taken it was cold and cloudy. Duh, snow at the top. When we went through tunnel on
the other side it was beautiful and sunny, like 2 different areas. Saw 1 VStrom 1000 at top and 3 1200 gs and 1 Yamaha stopped behind a herd of sheep, donkeys, couple of cows, 3 shepards and sheep dogs taking up both lanes. Took some pics of shepards and shared a few of our beers with them. Took a week around Transylvania and had a great time.
If you are close on a bike, take this wonderful road. Even if it is closed, go to the top and back down. Wonderful, wish I was on a bike. Sibiu also had the Romaniacs Rally going right through town. Guys in full gear, covered in mud on one wheel and a two stroke in town. Don't see that in US.

A while since this thread was active.. Anyone who has some news on how it looks on Transfagarasan? And also maybe Transalpine?

Probably going down there the in the very beginning of June. Think it will be open/ridable?

And82, I'm checking with some of my girlfriend's family back in Romania. I should know if it's open or not by tonight...

OK, just got word back from Romania. Transfagarasan *AND* Transalpina are both OPEN now from my sources there. Current weather in Bucharest is hot and humid -- over 95*F -- and the last reports of snow on Transfagarasan were weeks and weeks ago.
