OK, friends.

Postings in english are realy hard for me.
I will give my best.
The whole story is also available in my blog
http://feldweg-streuner.blogspot.de/

Unfortunately only in German.

The journey starts at home with us on the Moselle and via the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary to Romania.
We wanted to reach the Black Sea.
But had to abbreviate something, as the weather was very bad.

6300 km during 3 weeks is hard and difficult with a 250er CRF L.


I will try to provide my travel / journey here in English little by little

That will be funny for you to read

I think I ended up here in the wrong thread.
But I do not know how I come over in the long distance thread.


regards
Ari

Three weeks in Autember

6300 km from the Moselle to the end of the Carpathians


At the s tart, the trip to Romania was quite a disappointment!



Miserable infrastructure, stray dog pack, poor basic services, by our standards, abysmal accommodation, terrible food supply, constant begging, Sanitary facilities with Würgreizgarantie (is a spezial German word, it means the warantee to bring your stomach contents from inside out), theft and corruption starts at the border post ..........



of all these adventurous things we have very little seen or experienced.
This trip report will therefore tell more of the nice, friendly, and helpful people

and show how to get even with a 250 Enduro and only 49 liters of luggage through the many large and small adventures such a long trip can offer.






Actually, it was from the outset a pretty crazy idea and I already know no longer what jolly mood has driven us to deny this long way.

Anyway, I can vividly remember me of the days after that memorable evening when Sabine, Helga, Lutz and I decided this trip had to tackle.


There was, for example, the first estimate of the route through the mountains to the Black Sea, which made ​​me play formidable 6.800km a powerful sinking feeling in my stomach.

On top of that, the trip would take at least 3 weeks. Just the usual quantities of equipment and clothing would make a service truck needed.


But it was still good 9-10 months away and secretly catch yourself doing, how to make a plan rightly considered how to get out of the number by a socially responsible way . But the girls knew no mercy and so the project slowly took forms or better deformities on.

With the focus of the age of my faithful 650s SLR (see sardines) and the expected amounts of baggage, the journey has been deallocatedfor the four-cylinder bikes .

But two months before the departure date, shortly after my off-road Alpentour) scored two degenerated intervertebral discs, a torn Achilles tendon and a torn shoulder tendon is plenty of trouble.






In my case that meant that a 300kg motorcycle was out of the question. Sabine sensed the chance finally to lead their new 250cc enduro on a long trip and then as the Honda CRF was in sale for 4,000 € , in me grew a downright audacious plan.


No two days later there were two CRF 250L in the garage and the question in the space, how in the world do I get there luggage for three weeks on it and how we should tell Helga and Lutz that longer motorway sections are dead.



Day 0
Stage: Livingroom –Garage- Garden (RLP) 0,1 km
Losses: ca. 20 kg Baggage, which must remain at home
Tour description: Balanced tour with short but very steep climbs (basement stairs)

Now, as are the remaining bundle of belongings that just barely fit into the stuff sack that also the thermal lining of jackets and trousers can be stuffed to do so. Because that should be necessary, because in Romania it is hot and until mid-September, there is a severe drought period.



So the plan ..........

and I can and would like it ever anticipate, the lining were rather rare in the pocket. Even more rarely, only the wetness protection membrane was packed.

It was approaching the big moment of the CRF Erstbepackung and it worked much better than expected.









Mit ca. 12kg noch recht ziviel ausgefallen, machte sich das Gewicht auf dem Heck hoch thronend während der Fahrt deutlich weniger negativ bemerkbar als erwartet und auch der kleine Tankrucksack trübte allenfalls im Stehen auf den Rasten das Fahrvergnügen etwas.
Für eine 25oer ist es eben doch ein sehr erwachsenes Motorrad.


Tag 1
Stage: Löf-Franzensbad (CZ) 483 km
Losses: Speedo Spiral Zephyr, starting problems


Tour description:Long and fairly unspectacular road section by known regionsdie selbst im WesterWald bereits ein Mensch gesehen hat.


So then it was for the three of us (Sabine, Volker and the Mutbär)





on 17.08.2013 even without breakfast from the sunny Untermosel up in the cool Westerwald .

A good time to introduce our new Topinvestment (NAVI) to undergo extensive testing.








Aber ich wills gleich vorwegnehmen, es sollte das teuerste aber auch wenns lecker war das zweitschlechteste Frühstück dieser Reise werden. Und somit ist es schon fast ein Qualitätsprädikat für das, wass wir noch vor uns hatten.


Nachdem Michaele (sie wollte uns nur ein kleines Stück begleiten), Helga und Lutz eingetroffen waren gings dann quer durch den Vogelsberg in und an der Rhön vorbei in den Thüringer Wald. Pünktlich vor HiBu trennte sich Helgas 100 000 km Zephyr dann zwanglos von ihrer Tachowelle, was einen Besuch bei Bruno (befreundeter KAWA-Händler und stets hilfsbereiter Genosse) notwendig erscheinen ließ. Und wieder passte das Timing perfekt, denn Gabi und Bruno waren obwohl erst Samstagnachmittag war nicht mehr in Ihrem Laden. Servicewüste sag ich nur. :-)

Den Wunsch der Mädels, zum Kuchen ins http://www.cafe-otto.de/ (beste Konditorei im ganzen wilden Osten) zu fahren fand ich ebenso verlockend wie von den zusätzlichen km her gänzlich abwegig. Man muss auch mal nein sagen können. Und so erreichten wir nach einem kulinarischen Stopp in Sonneberg unsere Unterkünfte im zarten rot der langsam versinkenden Sonne.


Vorher hatte ich noch reichlich Spaß mit dem Tschechischen Geldautomaten, der nach der in bestem Deutsch formulierten Frage nach der gewünschten Sprache ohne Umschweife meine linguistischen Wünsche ignorierte und lustig wilde für mich unverständliche tschechiche Auswahlmenüs anbot. Nach 4 Versuchen (try and error, wobei jedes Mal die Karte wieder ausgeworfen wurde) hatte ich es dann bis zur PIN geschafft und zwischen mir und meinen ersten Kronen stand eigentlich nur noch der Polizeiwagen, der mittlerweile hinter mir Platz gefunden hatte.
Es zeigte sich, dass die Beiden etwas barsch auftretenden Ordnungshüter vom Schlage -ich hab dank der Uniform endlich mal was zu melden- aber nur an unseren falsch parkenden Motorrädern interessiert waren, denn schließlich sind wir in einer Kurstadt, da kann mann nicht eben mal auf dem Bürgersteig anhalten, auch wenn der 20 Meter breit ist. Nachdem wir den Beiden ein wenig Beachtung geschenkt hatten, war dann auch alles wieder gut und wir durften endlich zum Essen.


Zu Franzensbad muss ich noch ein paar Worte loswerden.
Der alte Kurort ist wirklich eine Augenweide. Er ist leicht und schnell zu erreichen und ein idealer Eingang zum deutsch-tschechichen Grenzgebirge. Das Essen ist gut und Unterkünfte gibt es in verschiedenen Preisklas ab 30€ aufwärts reichlich. Leider ist er aber auch ein etwas altbackener Urlaubsort und man ist mit 39 Lenzen (oder en wenig mehr), von einigen mitgeschleppten Enkeln und Urenkeln abgesehen, der Jüngste in der Disco. Gut das störte uns nach rund 500km Landstraße nun weniger, aber an sommerlichen Wochenenden ist eine Zimmerreservierung absolut ratsam, da der Ort schnell ausgebucht ist.

I understood it perfectly. You had a motorcycle, a friend and you went riding. Ate well and had a good time. Makes perfect sense to me.

Day 2 Motobike cave Hotel roof on fire

Day 2
Stage: Franzensbad-Jablonne(CZ) 326 km
Lossses: crumbeled numberplate , Hotelroof
Description: beautiful trip along the border with plenty of views and some of the travel planned but unplanned surprises





The morning started with bright sunshine and a hearty breakfast, and the first free choice of route through the German-Czech border region.


So it goes to the border , which we already knew quite well from our holiday in the Erzgebirge. Nevertheless, the speed with which this region has developed was amazing. There was nothing more with lonely roads. Everything changes ..... no not all ..... the only way is to orient here are the bike path markings.


I must once again adapt the route, because we are running late (a condition that should be in the next 20 days normal state) and we absolutely want to visit even caves from the Moto Club "Pekelné Doly", which would be closed on the following day. After a much too brisk ride through the canyons of this exciting area and after a break in Napoleon's Pet


and the obligatory Pancakes with huge portion of ice


(sorry was hypoglycaemic,'ve eaten ddas image)

we can make it actually shortly after six to break into the caves.

We spend in and around the caves an hour and I have to say that the holed rock was already a little highlight.








We leave the valley that leads to the caves and keep on Jablonne because we hope to find accommodation there. My GPS found a Hotel in the middel of the town. I let the group returned briefly unattended and find an old hotel on the market.


A somewhat younger woman with part-Iro (right normal left bald) is aware of me. I ask and she gives us three huge rooms.


he Iro-mouse is super helpful and we are allowed to park the bikes in the courtyard. Where we find that the top floor of the hotel is freshly burned. All the same, this huge room with bath and Jacuzzi are top class

and the best in terms of the menu was to come.


Has anyone ever ordered fried Hermelin without getting into a serious conflict with the Humane Society??
We can. And the diabolical masses in the potato pancakes have recently come on top of my "what I want to eat again soon" list.

Conclusion Day 2:
The Tschechich-German-Polish border area with its beautiful scenery the low prices and good eating and drinking is one of the tastiest alternatives to my beloved Vosges Mountains or the Black Forest.

Day 6 The sea is still far........ even further away than yesterday

Tag 6

Stage: Satu Mare – Morisei 210 km
Losses: 40 million brain cells randomly distributed over the participants of yesterday evening. Beast of Bourbon
Description: Short and pleasant wellness tour along the Ukrainian border by the drought finally reached.





You see it in the daily output, according to the cozy rioting over the roofs of SatuMare, we have it the next morning not quite so urgent as on the preceding days.


The KTM Ibuprophen (I have described in my blog), otherwise praised for their hard response, do not want quite diffuse into the thick blood.
We cruise through the country and are impressed by the good roads (no kidding), the many new buildings, the endless wedding parties and the miraculous ..... beautiful costumes.






At first I thought it would be a holiday or custom to marry this Thursday, but it was much easier because the wedding celebrations simply take from Thursday to Sunday.
The product of road conditions and scenic beauty remained mostly constant, and culminated in a Kilomter long cobblestone strip, which was set up by the Romans through the beautiful fields of sunflowers.









Very striking (significant?) are the magnificent buildings of the Orthodox Church, which shoot out of the ground everywhere..






and know how to impress powerful from inside and outside








In addition, the begging gypsy children who live with their parents in the woods and live off the sale of berries and mushrooms , seems to be almost spat out from a parallel universe.

In general I have ever visited a country, in which the gap between rich and poor is so obvious gaping wide apart as here. But for what I write more in the conclusion.

Slowly, it was later afternoon and we treated ourselves to a break on a mountain monastery.



Surprised, I was on the great barbecue places before the monastery church. Could almost be a Ursaarländische invention.

A barbecue was an unfamiliar word inscribed on the other was "MORTI"


Well, sometime's it became clear to me that these covered things , unfortunately, serve a different purpose.

The monastery was next to the two small church buildings also from a kind of open gallery, which included an open-roofed altar. The freely accessible building was richly decorated and worked in unfiltered sunlight almost surreal.









In perfect weather we visit the merry cemetery in Sapanta. That you should just googling (do you say googling?), because this location has already been ninimum 100 times described and min. 100 times certainly better than I could.








The day ripples (saying) so to himself, and then in the evening announces the splashing of the rain by the end of the shortest period of drought in Romania.

Unfortunately, the possible accommodations were all a little off, were occupied because of the many wedding guests






or were temporarily indisposed









And we have to move to some different places, until we finally find a hotel in Morisei on the main street. The landlord was rather a bit grumpy, but he gave us two rooms.

One of them, namely mine, was still decorated with pizza residues and wine bottles. So we waited another 20 minutes. The benefit of that the action was, that we were allowed to park in the dugout and our cycles were no longer seen of the road,and we received two Welcome Desperados.

You know in Romania, so we were even reports that the boxes are stolen immediately.
What has annoyed me the whole trip was that we had always pay the room in advance . Maybe we saw just not trustworthy enough of. But the rooms were great value price, super clean and the food was plentiful and delicious, which significantly differentiates itself from palatable.





So I must now to bed and collect engergy. Tomorrow after breakfest we went in heavy terrain for the first time and crossing the Prislop pass.


Sorry for the lousy translation
