Bike trip through Europe > Turkey & back under 900?(video)

I've been lurking here since the days of the Nathan postie report- but never posted....
I thought you might like to see a recent trip I undertook to Europe and the problems we faced.
There are 09 episodes in total...all with an alternative sense of humour- as I complete the other episodes-.(1/9 & 2/9 out now) they will be posted up. The vids are best watched with copious amounts of beer...or when the weather is too bad to ride!
If you want to subscribe- then you will get the latest videos. Should all be out within 1 week....hope you enjoy them.

Love it.
Just wonder where did you find the barn to stay overnight? Did you just ask the owner or pre-arranged it please?

Here's Ep2 & at the end it goes onto EP 3- which I will post up separately.
Thanks for your comments...keep an eye on what Sniper is buying as it goes through the episodes!

Wot he said. Very entertaining and even educational! Looking at touring the Alps with the missus 2015 so trying to absorb as much info as possible. (Sadly, with a 25kg luggage limit taking my Tiger is probably not an option..) BTW do either of you speak any of the local languages? My wife can mumble a few phrases of schoolgirl French but I will just have to do my Stig impression I think.
