Often the ride reports just sort of fade out because of this, though I do not mean to blame others. The lure of home is strong. But I was happy to read your report all the way to the end because it really did not end until you walked into your house again. Bravo!

Looking forward to more reports from you in the future!
Thanx. When i started doing this report i just wanted to give somthing back to ADV, but now i see the value in having the report here. Already memorys are fading but i have my report to read if i want to. But now i notice all my spelling mistaked and other mistakes :)

Excellent stuff Johnny. Can't get over the amount of miles you did in a relatively short time. You've given me and Juliet some ideas for our next trip

All the best,

Dickyb

Just finished reading your super fine report and great pictures. Thanks so much for the time and work to share these countries that I'll never see except though ride reports such as your.

English Breakfast

Hey thanks for doing this RR. I got onto the RR just to review the Romania part and ended up reading the whole thing. It's great. I never would have thought of going to Turkey, but it looks really nice and not nearly as crowded as I had thought. Montenegro was on my list, but it has now moved up a few places. If you are ever in Idaho stop by for a Euro breakfast (Red Bull and IKEA Sweedish meatballs, right?). Nothing worse than an English breakfast.

Turkey is not crowded at all. Many places you can ride for hours and only see a few houses.
Thanx for the invite. You should be carefull inviting me like that. I might stop by some time

Hi Johnny,
I'm not sure of the answer, but I have also noticed what you speak of. I think there is perhaps an archive section but I don't really see one on any menus. Good question for the "Ask Ralph, blame Baldy" forum?
