bonsoir Macadam. Je vis maintenant à Budapest et suis à ta disposition pour tout problème /entretien /aide / hébergement dans la région... de fin juin à mi aout je ne serai pas sur budapest mais vers le lac balaton... N'hésite pas à faire le détour, ca vaut le coup ... On a même le wifi perdus dans la fôrte, grâce un répeteur et tesco est ouvert 24/24 pour les collations :)

d('ici là j'aurai fait un trip roumanie /bulgarie /turquie et aurait sans doute quelques bons tuyaux... (mais ne compte pas sur moi pour les lieux touristiques, je préfère les rencontres dans des endroits plus authentiques :)

Bonjour Fabrice,
Merci beaucoup pour ton message. Je passerai près de Budapest aux alentours de la mi-juillet. Toujours preneur de bons tuyaux, je ne cherche pas spécialement les sites touristiques : c'est la route qui me plait par-dessus tout, réseau secondaire, voire même tertiaire, loin de la foule.

Great trip planned there sir.

Keep a note of our details and if you need any help if and when you are passing through our area feel free to give us a call. Cold beers always in the fridge, Biker garage has most of the tools you may need and in the event of a more serious problem, we can get your bike in our minibus.

I'm really jealous. The most I am going to squeeze in is a 4 day trip to Croatia.

I dropped mine was and manages to get it up by myself pretty fast.
That was on a paved (be it slippery and muddy) road though.

So. Come back here to give some news. Less than ten days before departure, I think I'm almost ready.
Fist of all, the bike had to be prepared. My brother did it. And as a preparation, I didn't ask him to put pretty special things on it. No, just complete revision, just change what has to be done, nothing more.

My brother was not very happy, because he had first to clean the bike, because he hates to work upon a dirty one, and as I almost never wash my bikes, he always has to do it !















The complete report is to read on my web site.

But, sorry, It's all in french language, perhaps not so bad with on line translaters !

There was also some work to stengthen the topcase's support, which was really ready to break. I've a nephew who is iron's man in the family.
He made it really robust.





But I keep the old ugly top case, it will be enough for "Serparti".



Perhaps some explanation about the name I gave to my small bike.
"Serparti" is a wordplay.
The pronunciation of "Serparti", in french, corresponds exactly to the words "c'est reparti", which means "here we go again"...
It's just because I had a two years break in my motorbike's life, and then I buyed this one after that pause !

So, now, you'll understand me when I'll speak about Serparti.

Last week, I received a great gift at home.
Bering, a french motorbike clothings specialist and well renowned by us in France, decided to participate in my Europa 2014 tour. They sent me motorcycle jacket, jean and gloves of top quality, and I want to thank them a lot for that !









Unfortunately, the Jean is too small.

Or perhaps am I too fat ?...

I hope to receive the good one very soon.

The complete report, in french, on the usual website.

About the red tape (paper work ?), the things are now ready.

I received the famous russian Visa. Gret !




I received the international driving license. It was painful to get it, because of our french really and totally ugly administration, but... ok, in the pocket !



And everything is clear with insurance, assistance, european health insurance card, and so on.

The whole report in french, as usual.

I wrote a special page to honor people who participate to my Europa 2014 tour. So, only some of them want to be there, because they want to remain anonymous contributors, what I must respect, of course.
Nevertheless, slowly but surely, I receive more photos and presentation texts to add.
Then, if you want to see them, you'll have to go and visit that page, and regularly, because it will grow and I add others as soon as they arrive !

Here my brother, who prepared Serparti.





Contributors will receive daily reports with texts and photos, and a lot of other gifts, look there.

I broke the windscreen last year in Spain, as the bike fall down when I put it on the kickstand. Repair was not very nice.
Then, I had the idea to hide it with that :



So, it will be easy to recognize Serparti, now, which was so happy to receive such a nice propaganda!

So, by for now !

Greetings from Brazil! Have had a YS 250 (also known as Fazer 250) and has ran over 75,000 kilometers. She can handle the trip with praise . I just put engine protector with extra footrests to stretch my legs on long paths and center stand for maintenance. With an iron man in the family should be simple to make this change which greatly improves comfort! Pirelli sport demon tires lasted on average 20 000 kilometers. In good highways ran 500 kilometers before refueling. Your trip will be fantastic and I'm watching! Have great miles! Sorry for the bad English, google is doing its best!

Macadom, my friend! First of all, hope you have a great and safe ride! And, of course, congrats on your 60th anniversary. Hope I'll be lucky enough to get there and still riding!

As Hugo mentioned, I also have had a Yamaha YBR 250 (here in Brazil the name for this bike is Fazer 250). Such a good bike! It wont be a problem for you in this adventure for sure!

I'll be watching this thread!

Thanks for posting it!
