And it definitely was, thanks man!

Minimal highway use and lots of amazing routes and destinations linked together is the golden rule of moto touring

I will post Google maps parts of the route in a couple of days

Maps of the trip with riding highlights, trip duration one week and 3100+ kilometers

Entering Montenegro from Kosovo through the mountain road at Bjeshket National Park



And the route through the canyon:



Day two, Tara Canyon - Savnik - Kotor + ride through Durmitor Park. The National Heroes route starts...at the doorstep of Motel Tara along with the riding pleasure!



And continues through Savnik



Until the final part of NH Road near Kotor...



...immediately followed by the awesome route around the gulf of Kotor

A nice route through Bosnia on the way to Mostar on day three:



The first part of the Sveti Jure climb inside the Biokovo National Park just outside Makarska



And the final part of the highest paved road in Croatia



The final part before arriving at the Plitvice Lakes is also very scenic and pleasant:



And finally Bistro Vučnica, a very nice restaurant with amazing food and prices, totally recommended and you are going to need it for dinner if you stay at private apartments for the night

Excellent presentation!

Your photographs are amazing and really transfer you to all those pretty places

Many want to do what you do but only few can...I can't imagine how you feel after one week on the road.

Bravo!

Thank YOU for your kind words, feedback like this is really motivating and encouraging

I don't have sponsors or fancy equipment, I just strap my bags on my bike and go!

And then sharing whatever I can with my online friends, of course
