Belgium-Slovenia 2014 20days of honda cs50 fun

Last year i made a trip with my old moped. I had this plan for about ten years with some friends. But last year I said to myself: screw it! I'm going alone or I will become a wanker when I hit the age of 70

This is my trip in a very short picture report. Sorry for the small and sometimes bad pictures. I have written the whole trip but it's in Flemish/Dutch and that was a whole day of work. English would take me two days. This is the link if you want to see more pictures : http://6volt.blogspot.be/search/labe...0Sloveni%C3%AB

I prepared the engine allready a little bit some year's ago because with modern traffic standards it's safer to ride it every day. The exterior is standard 50 but on the inside I planted an other crank and a 47mm cylinder. The outcome of the equasion makes it 90cc. "Lot's of torque" from 3000rpm till 8000rm ( dynotest in 2013 ) 6,0 Nm and 6,4Hp. It's cheating but with al the weight the moped was carrying in combination with some 18% hills it was very neaded.

Started on the 9th of July in Gullegem, Belgium what would become the best trip in my life so far. Extra sprocket was SOS. Just in case I couldn't go up some of the passes


Just crossed the boarder ( the Rijn) of France to Germany and heading toward the E500, better known as the Schwartswaldstrasse.


In Sigmaringen, Germany I fixed the clutchnut that came a little bit loose. This was at 700-800km. In France my stearingplate broke allready


Woohoow. Fernzpass, Austria: check!



This is in Italy heading towards the passes that would guide me into Slovenia





Allright! I made made it, allmost! Just a fraction from the boarder Italy-Slovenia now! Best day ever! After 4 days and 1300km! My cheeks hurted form smyling!



Or was it crying



This is why you should visit Slovenia! The mighty Triglav mountains! What a view.



Some of the problems I came across. This is allready taken care of on this moment. I made it better than Honda did. Much stronger for the abuse I do to this bike year in year out. I rode whith that goofy steeringplate for about 3000km. Still took the hairpins like a pro at "high" speeds


Sometimes it was nice to leave all the equipment alone in the tent and going out for some joyriding.




On of the best pics whith the go pro personally



This was heavy for both. 1611m , 25 hairpins up, 25 hairpins down : the Vrsic ( vrisjik) pass. People had a laugh when I reached the top in first gear.



Enjoying a beer in a very nice village with the local postman and his friend near the lake of Bled



Visiting one of the four musea. The second time i was there in Vransko. Amazing collection! You didn't visit Slovenia if you left this behind! Other musea was the speedwaymuseum, national technical museum and the Zundapp museum in Germany



Fixing the rack that broke on 4 places. To much weight. I came with a solution of a piece of wood, and everything I could use to hold it together and it worked!



I can wake up like this every day



Croatia was fucking hot. The day after it rained...



I had at least 1000km of rain but I made the best of it



Got in touch with a local in Otocec and after my return of Croatia I returned and he made this typical Slovenian dish. Man that was tasty



Happy Bram



This is when I was retuning home. Going for the second time towards the fun of the well known Brennerpass



Flat tyre after 3300km. 30minutes of work and then quickly heading to catch the ferry



Back home. 3907km in 20 days. I made it! Love to go again etc. At 3850km a car nearly crashed on me but only hit my reserve gastank. The last 50km's I was a little scared for every crossing car. But nontheless this was the best trip ever. No regrets!



As I mentioned before , for more pictures go to the blog written above.

The Honda is still in daily use for the sixt year now and is still heavily used.
This is a pic from February. 3 day's fun with 8 oldtimer moped/motorcycle mates. Flandria 50cc from the seventies( belgian brand) and bsa bantam '68 and my Honda also from '68.



Hope you enjoyed this short report.

Greetings

Bram

Just goes to show you can have just as much fun on 50cc as you would on any larger bike

Congrats

That's the "Adventure" attitude - what's the best bike for a trip like this? The one you have in the garage.
Keep riding and posting.
