Laugh RIDING THE ALPS 2012 : Supermoto epic RoadTrip ! France to Croatia !

EDIT THE 01/30/2014





Hey guys what's up ?!

First of all excuse me if my english is not perfect.

My name is Cyrille, French motorcycle lover of 21 years old.

This summer me and 3 stupid friends of mine (yes you have to be a lil' stupid for following me) went from France to Croatia with our supermoto's.

But we only passed by the mountains.


So this is the Road book of this adventure.




Link of the Road Book here (click).

As I think that a video is better than a long explication if you wanna know more about this crazy Roadtrip we did in a short time it's really simple, watch the PROLOGUE (EPISODE 1) video and it will explain everything.
Don't be shy it's ferry funny by the way!





Don't worry it's fully translated in English.
And it's not me speaking in the video, but my homie Nico !!! ( He did the blog, the road book etc.)

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _______


Report Videos of the Road Trip are coming as soon as possible (As we are all students it's hard to find some time to edit the videos, and you know it it takes a lot of time...).

-After the watching the video you can also give an eye to our blog : (articles translated)

-And the Facebook page !

I thought that some pictures could interest you (Most of them are on the blog or on Facebook).





"INTERLAKEN" which means "between the lakes", in Switzerland, beautiful place.





"Furka" and "GRIMSEL" Pass in switzerland, the road looks like a race track (and it is) but it's a little bit to quick for a supermotard, anyway we just drop every bikes we saw behind us.



"Killing the Stelvio Pass in Italy before it kills you !" That's what my friend Nico said after, cause he crashed in this pass and the bike was totally destructed hopefully he was alright, we were in troube for the rest of the adventure but went in Slovenia to buy an other bike for him, a cheap 660 SMC but damn it works way better than his old XTX !!! :arsenal



"Let's stop to put the GoPro's on !"



Stelvio again



Galvia Pass Italy



Maxime's a hard braker !!!



Me doing it sideways.



Chillin' somewhere near Kranskja Gora (Slovenia)



Look at the rider in front of me.
BTW do you say hello to other bikers in the USA ???



Nico getting the best of his new bike !



Visiting the Plitvice lakes in Croatia, if you go in this country you have to see this !!!






Enjoying the Adriatic coast near Pulla, Croatia







"Magnifique" isn't it ?


Hope you liked it and if you have some questions, ASK ME !!!

Awesome! I wish Supermotards were not a luxury item over here, they are super fun.

Is it because our bikes don't have knobbies?
Or maybe because we don't go in the dirt that much that nobody is interested about this thread?
