Touring İtaly on nc700x

Hello we are one happy couple from Turkey İstanbul,maybe some of you will remember us from nc700x topic,last year we travelled to mongolia with our little nc700x it was hard on my arse :)
some of you knew in person i am a man of fashion i always wear good things on me and be shiny :) ot he oppsite site my wife is yeah just like all ordinary wifes is like a commuter bike dull and unshiny :)
I was thinking how can i change her mind about fashion.Than i found the solution my on my wardrobe,all my fabrics are made in italy.So the adventure begins.


For this trip i installed gps on my bike,
Some camping gear if we can not find hotel(bye the way i did not orginize any hotels before the trip,i always let the wind take me whenever it takes me :)
lots of photography equipment and charges
rain gear and shoes
and underwear :)

Before the adventure begins i want to see how my nc700x looks front my camera so i called my baby and we start shooting ( i want my bike to be shiny in italy :))

After i see the resuts i pulled the trigger and we started Rolling.

ANd here is my wifes style before the adventure :)



The route is we go from İstanbul to edirne which is the border to the greece,we fill our papers and pass on to greece.From there i dont want to see much more around cause i already seen greece couple of times,We only stopped at kavala which is a very fine place i highly recomend you all visit there.

here are some photos of kavala

I'd let my wife wear rags if she would ride with me.

I'm happy that she lets he ride at all.

After some 900 km later we arrived iqumenitsa.While waiting the ferry i took some more photos



I was really tired of days riding near 950kms,for those WHO dont know anything about nc700x seat let me describe it in one Word "pornstar" yeah its like ron jeremy working on my ass all they long,i can not describe you the pain i suffer from this seat :)

At last we are in the ferry to go Brindisi İtaly,we were so tired we falled in to sleep in minutes.





we woke up with the call of ships speakers its breakfast time.
After the breakfest we enjoyed the view over the deck.

We arrived Brindisi i was ready for some italian road action guess what,all that bullshit i heart about italian drives are indeed wrong.They are very kind and obey rules unlike in turkey :) or maybe our standarts are very low even italian drivers are looking good in my eyes :)



After arrivin to brindisi we head to salerno.Salerno is very fasinating place.Its near Napoli.The place is as all italy is very rich with art and history.

We first visisted a pizza restrount than move on to sightsing

we searched for a good and cheap hotel also must be secure for our bike too.You know crime rate is high in Napoli.
hahaha guess what i am coming from fu..ing İstanbul Crime is everyday business for me :) so i just parked my bike outside and put my ulock on just like that.

This is a very interesting report! Thank you very much for posting it. So often the story is told about Turkey by Americans or western Europeans heading farther east, so it is very nice to read a report coming the other way. I am looking forward to the rest of the story! I assume that for fashion you went to Milan?
