Montenegro - Albania - Macedonia - Kosovo - Montenegro 24. 10. 2010.

Last weekend we have decided to go for a ride… After shortly discussion we all agreed that south would be great idea because of the lower temperatures… Ohrid in Macedonia was pretty nice idea.
Ok, lets go… It was a little bit chilly but the will for riding was bigger …

Route was: Montenegro –Albania – Macedonia –Kosovo - Montenegro
Montenegro
Niksic – Podgorica – Bar – Ulcinj – Sukobin
Albania
Shkoder - Tirana – Elbasan – Prenjas
Macedonia
Ohrid - Gostivar – Tetovo
Kosovo
Doganovic – Brezovica – Prizren – Djakovica – Pec – Jablanica
And Montenegro
Rozaje – Berane – Kolasin – Podgorica - Niksic

Meeting at the gas station in Podgorica



Crew :
Dragan – Yamaha TDM900,
Slowhand - Honda Cb1000 Big One,
Slowrider - Bmw f650,
Big1 – Honda CBR 600 F
DrMracni – Yamaha Fz6n



(don’t take Slow… for serious)


Coffee is over and we were on the road. After few traffic light I was shocked when I saw the Dragan’s tire…






We are not giving up… let’s go to the first tire service!
Noup… no tires for his bike…
Next town is Bar, there must be a tire in service…



Noup again…


There was only one town left before Albania… Let give It a shot! And off course we were lucky this time






There was nothing else to spoil happiness



Giving up is not part of our spirit…


Last chance to fill up gas in Montenegro



Sukobin border crossing







There we met couple from Switzerland on their way across Balkans on bicycles

We entered Albania. Road is ok, but the traffic… It was like in video game… Avoid everything you can avoid big mess











Entry in Tirana was 9th circle of hell J there was 3 or 4 lane, but in reality it was completely deferent…





Trg of Skenderbeg in Tirana











We were the only one who respected the traffic signs

With help of one friend we found an excellent place to take a break … Prince Park













Tirana beer – I must say, excellent beer



We move on. Plain is to go to Elbasan over the mountain… Recommendation for the road, it was full of curves… Beautiful…

In small place huge differences...



Time to leave Ohrid, and go to Kosovo





Road from Ohrid to Gostivar is just perfect for a riding...

Road is agan excellent for a ride... Full of curves in thick yellow wood...




Looping, let's see someone with Bmw to do this… Yamaha rules!
















Doganovic - Prizren over the Sar mountain (Brezovica ski resort)
Before that, some similarity with Honda










And it begins





















Mountain is under the snow already

Ski resort





Prizren – Djakovica



Police patrols were common thing







Luckily for us they forgive us



Temperature is lower and lower, so we had to put some more equipment

control on Kosovo border was fast, and we were again in our country...
But border patrol warned us about ICE in some part of road... And it really was ice on some part... Fortunately we had no problem... but it was very slippery

Gas station







And some hot soup before coming home...





And that was it



1015km in two days, and most important excellent company...
