We learned a trick to passing the border with minimal hassle. During a usual border process the passengers go through the immigration and then wait in a separate area while the customs officials inspect the car. This is what we do now, Hyein just follows me back to...

Eastern Europe and the Balkans

Eastern Europe and the Balkans

A common theme for adventure motorcycle photos is a gnarly dirt road, far from civilization with dirty and sunbaked riders posing with their bikes. We are as guilty of doing these photos as the next rider, but, alas, Eastern Europe was about different things for us....

Eastern Europe Border Crossings

GREECE & THE BALKANS WARM UP TOUR

GREECE & THE BALKANS WARM UP TOUR

Like all athletes do before the final race, we felt like it was compulsory for us to head out before our next big overland exhibition and do a warm up. Having limited time we quickly planned a 2-week trip around the Western Balkans, an area that is becoming more and...

So the annual meeting starring the mighty Tay Valley, Edinburgh and Northumbria branches has come around again so it must be September, unbelievable its been a year since the last one. We set off after work on Friday only to be confronted with rain, wind and crazy...

Żurek and Wściekły pies

From Kiev we will make our way east to Poland, but take a few days instead of going on the highway. The first day was 418 km to Rivne, but via Korosten and Sarny. The road surface on the E373 was very smooth. The driving here was civilized and trucks pulled over to...

Ipiales to Popayan

Ipiales to Popayan

It took nine hours to grind 358 km today. That’s pretty much 40 km/h rolling speed in average. Most of the time we were alone on the road, I wouldn’t say that there was much traffic on this route, occasionally a truck or bus, not too many personal...
