Bike porn at it's best


Road by the Savinja river.


Another mill before the third pass


And up again. Peca mountain in the distance.


Slovenia is not densely populated and that works for me


If I remember correctly more than 60% of all area are woods
And here we are on the third pass.


Till next time

Im in the early stages of planning a ride around europe next june/july and looking at these photos has certainly put Slovenia on the must see list. Thanks for posting.

It is Hyosung GT125 from South Korea. It's my sons bike since he has the A1 licence (up to 125ccm).
One of rare full sized 125ccm, not 3/4 like many others. We modified it a little of course

Hell, the planned two-day trip fell into the water and flushed away. Sometimes things do not go according to our plans and wishes. That means no more seaside pics this year cos autumn is rapidly approaching.

I will try to do some trips to mountain shepherd settlements instead, unfortunately one of the last residues of archaic way of living in this areas.

With little luck, good weather and autumn colors I should get some nice pics along the way.

At my barn: rear tire needs replacement. Maybe it's time for the winter setup - knobbies?.


Yes my dear wife, I'll mow the grass ... as soon as I find the time

Like I said I switched my tyre and from now on we are in offroad mode, ok gravel mode. I tested new tyres few kilometres and they are decent on the tarmac and excelent on the loose terrain, better than I expected. Front is Conti TCX 80 and back is Sava MT60.

I did some testing


Somewhere along the way I was struggling through the mud, as shown on the back tyre


And came out just fine. Nice job knobbies

The Last Warm Days

With new tires on I was looking for some short trips before the cold closes the curtain. Therefore I went on a trip to the nearby Alpine foothills.



Soon I came across an idyllic cottage that could be a perfect hideout from everyday problems



And another one

The road slowly climbed over the lowland mist



Until I reached a plateau called Menina planina. This is a close neighbor of the other more famous and even more beautiful plateau, which I will present you another time.

Even small lakes can be found up there, water reservoirs for livestock



And Alpine peaks can be seen in the distance



But time to leave usually comes too soon
