At morning we started early to reach the beginning of the Transfagarasan Road...60km to go!





The sun is shining....the engine runs well...so lets ride





Up to the carpathian mountains....









it starts to become interesting....




































O yeah ...it becomes good now!















Thats it baby!











a good road to wake me up in the morning....

















at the top we found a nice lake with an motel....






















We had a coffee...and a idea. We asked for aroom and they had one...so lets stay here for tonight...i love this place

We brought the luggage into the room...and then back on the road...we ride the transfagarasan till the end and back








no traffic....Ok ...some cars sometimes...thats not traffic











We arrived the Barajul Vidraru (Vidra barrier lake)



















Flash Gordon?










2 hours later we found a nice restaurant at the end of the transfagarasan....a good thing because we where really hungry at that moment


The restaurant was accidentally below the one and only real Dracula castle!





But we where not in the mood to climb the 1200 stairs to the castle

The wold is not as big as we sometimes think....we sit on our table and behind us a group of bikers. A man come to us and asked if my shirt has something to do with the ADV forum!?
i said "yes" and the he told me that his name is "minusone" from ADV forum and he comes from australia for a ride in romania

Here we are....minusone and myself in front of my beamer






We had anice time together





after the ADV meeting...we headed back to our motel...it started to become cold and dark in the carpathian mountains...and i was little afraid to meet Mr Dracula somewhere in the dark......so lets go
















































and again one of those days you will not really arrive somewhere...just ride and enyoj....but it is like it is...we arrived at the motel.
the beds where a little bit tiny and small....but outside it was dark and cold now....so we had a paradise for tonight










Light off and good night!

When I visited Croatia I discovered Karlovacko and must say this is one of the best beers I have ever tasted. They actually sell Karlovacko in the United States. My sister lives near Cincinnatti, Ohio and Jungle Jim's sells it. Thanks for making a smile appear on my face.

Well Done

Very nice ride report with very true facts about Dracula Castle and Vlad the Impaler ( Dracu) . Romanian HISTORY is know very little and most of the time is presented way too wrong . Thank You

Slept like ababy! Today is Sibiu (Herrmannsstadt) on our plan!






But first we will have a look outside....looks foggy...i love it








A gang of sheeps at the breakfast ...they look satisfied....





the shepherd and his dog....












It felt and looked very wet...we decided to wear our rainsuits...10 min later we pulled them out



















A pig gang...









one hour later we where back in the valley and on our way to Sibiu...



Awesome Transfagarasan
