Riding off the beaten tourist path in the Balkans


Adriatic Tours, in collaboration with one very satisfied customer, have offered a special insight into Adriatic’s Southeast Europe Tour.


This will come out in edition 62 (hitting newsagents around 21st March) but for now, an excerpt:


I rode a new BMW F750 GS, which matched the weight and size of the 1989 Honda Transalp I ride at home.


Of course, the BMW had almost double the horsepower of my 30-year-old Honda, and included modern safety features such as ABS and traction control — which, I confess, were deployed a handful of times on the tour!


AMT sells all their bikes at the end of each riding season, and so all tours are outfitted with new or practically new machines, including BMWs, Hondas, Suzukis, and Yamahas. All are equipped with ample storage cases and a pre-programmed, handlebar-mounted GPS showing each day’s route.


Our riding skills in curves were tested on our very first day when we rode alongside the wandering Danube River separating Serbia and Romania and through the foothills of the Serbian Carpathian Mountains.


Riding in the foothills only whetted our appetite for eventually riding up into higher elevations. Those mountain twisties would come soon enough, Tomaž said, and there would be plenty of them. Yay, mountains!
