Day 5

 

Kosice to Bratislava. These are easy roads but we were knackered by now due to lack of sleep and too many miles. Bratislava is a very smart town indeed. We seemed to have picked a quiet night for going out so were tucked up in bed by 5am thankfully. I like Bratislava - which pretty much means I reckon Slovakia is a great destination!!

Day 6

 

Bratislava to Munich. This is a long ride but the roads are perfect. But as I was riding an Enduro style bike it means a realistic top speed of 130kph and a sore arse.

Personally I think we pretty much screwed up on this trip. We had no GPS so maybe overcooked how far we could/should go in a day. We did not leave enough free time to walk the towns, or catch up on sleep. A more sensible route in a week would have been to skip the Ukraine, and go direct from Krakow to Slovakia. Also my bike is NOT prepared for long hauls like this, so I need to make some upgrades. But...it's always nice to see new places and burn some tread on the bikes.

Am just ordering a touring windshield and awaiting bigger tanks from a supplier in Australia - so hopefully will crack the issues that make the bike suck on this type of trip. Plus change of seat.

JE's new TV series: Long Way with a Hangover ?

I'm impressed at the sheer distance in those conditions.

As one of TT's longstanding members and a capable motorcyclists with local know-how, I would suggest Jeeves as an ideal candidate to organize such a rideout <_<

So having come back to Munich after a 4 year break (and having searched the forum this time (I am the OP of this thread but with a more apropos username), I can't seem to find any info on rideouts for this year. The last posts seem to be from last year..

 

So whats' going down in Motorcycle town... ?

 

This weekends weather is looking top hole, anyone going anywhere interesting and if not what's a good spot to head for (and saying 'The Alps' is a bit ambiguous) :)

Any recent activity going on here in the motorcycle riding thread? I've been riding around on my own for a bit already, then I thought of checking TT for some ideas or fellow riders?

 

Any suggestions welcome!

Sam, I replied to your other message too. I'm keen to do some ride-outs, so message me. Cheers, Scott.

Hi

Also looking to join any ride outs, no mad fast stuff and prefer some twists and views.

Have a ZZR600 in Munich.

Hey guys,

 

As many here, I've been also riding alone for some time, working on my skills, as i am still a squid. However, it seems i am becoming less of a menace on the road, so will happily join some ride outs. I ride sv650s, love twisties, hate highways. This week end I explored some nice curvy roads around Bayrischzell. Not many cagers, fair number of riders. Basically, I usually ride to a place with twisties and do laps there. Total trip is 300-500 km on average.

Leonid, e2vdavidb, orangaman,

 

Let me know when you're going for a ride! As soon as the weather gets more consistent, I'll be riding again.

Anyone out there that fancies a ride-out, after work or at the weekend? I had a bike accident last year, so am just getting back into the swing of things again. I´m definitely no "Kurvenfresser", but my Duc would be pleased to have some company:-)

as an Old Guy,    I sold my Honda Goldwing after 34 years..   Absolutely nothing went wrong with it... ,   Well,  the  Dutch (Phillips)  tail light bulb did burn out,...     Now I have a 250 Yamaha and it is wonderful...   light,   responsive,   and faster than a 74 year old guy wants to go.   I love it.   I can keep up with all of my buddies, and hardly ever put gas in it.   ( Yamaha xt-250)   It's better than Viagra...       Dave the Barbarian

Yeah, definitely. What kind of ride are we talking? Have to pick the right weapon from the armory. I'm hoping you ride quickly (not recklessly) so would bring the CBR600RR. Drop me a PM to organise something.
