Montenegro 2019 Day 9 – Dubrovnik to Split

Montenegro Flag

The day started off exactly how it was planned. A lazy start, a late breakfast and a few hours relaxing around the pool. We had a nice lunch and then finished off getting ready to go. Having checked out, the group was underway. Our first stop would be in 50 miles or so to fuel […]

Montenegro 2019 Day 8 – Dubrovnik to Montenegro

Montenegro Flag

As planned we were up early for breakfast and the aim was to be away at 0700am. That was the previous evening’s plan and we were soon under way. It wasn’t long before we got to the border to enter Montenegro, but on the way there was a stark reminder of the dangers of motorcycling […]

Montenegro 2019 Day 7 – Karlobag to Dubrovnik

Montenegro Flag

Today’s route is an easy one, straight to Dubrovnik. Yes it was that simple, if you can’t see the sea on the right hand side, you are not going the right way! The day started early for me, a 00.30am start from Trieste in Italy, through Slovenia and onto Karlobag in Croatia. A very direct […]

Montenegro 2019 Day 6 – Kranjska Gora to Karlobag

Montenegro Flag

Today’s journey took us from the beautiful setting of Kanjska Gora and away from the higher mountain passes. The guys unanimously decided that we were not going to ride the Trenta Pass but head down to Lake Bled instead which was a planned alternative route. This is because they’d had enough of the passes and […]

Montenegro 2019 Day 5 log – Bormio to Kranjska Gora

Wow, what a thunderstorm, the best I’ve ever experienced. It seemed to go on all night, it was overhead at times but rattled around the mountains. You could hear it slowly moving away until it was a distant rumble miles away causing chaos somewhere else. Truly amazing and a great experience. Today we were travelling […]

I woke up early, I felt refreshed and relaxed. The bed was cozy and Ginge had not woken me up but I did wear earplugs so that I couldn’t hear him anyway. I looked up at the curtains and the sun was shining, I hoped this was going to continue for the rest of the […]

Today was Ginge’s Birthday.  Throughout the day he enjoyed at least 2 pieces of cake, so we’ve decided it’s going to be someones birthday everyday!

It was going to be a long day from Trier down into Switzerland. We were all up and having breakfast early, it was a good German style breakfast with a great selection. It would really set us up for the day. The ride started at 09.00am after we had loaded up bikes and checked out. […]

Montenegro 2019 Day 1 – Folkestone to Trier

Montenegro Flag

An early start, but I was awake and up before the alarm clock had gone off. In fact I was in the shower when the alarm clock went off, so I must have pissed off next door while it was going off to wake the dead. After getting sorted out I packed the little I’d […]
