Title: The Alps...(Erzberg Rodeo)...
Post by: croatia on September 26, 2009, 12:40:48 pm
The Alps...
 
Erzberg Rodeo is only something that we went to see quickly. The main point was the Alps. Not the fancy passes. We wanted to do some off road there.
 
It was four days of everything:
 
Beautiful scenery...

and not so beautiful,...
(http://i39.tinypic.com/2ni0ef6.jpg)
 
 
nice off road,...
(http://i41.tinypic.com/wv1vt3.jpg)
 
 
and very nice road parts.
(http://i42.tinypic.com/rkpxeq.jpg)
 
 
There were some crossing problems,...
(http://i39.tinypic.com/1zm18xk.jpg)
 
....

There was also a bit of Erzberg,...

some friends from Africa,...

night adventures,....

and something white.

This is our trip on the map:
(http://i42.tinypic.com/j5ku1l.jpg)
 
Legend:
- red: all the roads
- blue: all the off road
- black: sleeping points

 
 
So, lets start from begining...
 
Julian Alps - Day 1
 
Thursday, start at 5AM. Me and my friend Anton. XT & Tenere. Of course, we start at 6. And a half.
Fast to Slovenia: Trogir - Sibenik - Benkovac - Maslenica - Rijeka - Rupe.
In Slovenia we put our friend Zumo to avoid everything except off road.
You can see what happened after that.

After half an hour of trying to find the exit we are on the road again. Lunch in small place called Zaga.
(http://i42.tinypic.com/jae234.jpg)
 
 
Meat for Anton...
(http://i44.tinypic.com/2wqudc6.jpg)
 
 
and fish for me.
(http://i40.tinypic.com/24fldt2.jpg)
 
 
It is time for mountains...
(http://i42.tinypic.com/vxkl5h.jpg)
 
 
Nice weather on the top
(http://i39.tinypic.com/16gk64n.jpg)
 
 
This is what we were looking for - the road through the Alps
(http://i41.tinypic.com/iohx60.jpg)
 
(http://i42.tinypic.com/16kpcg2.jpg)
 
(http://i42.tinypic.com/2u76cmq.jpg)
 
 
Down on the south side

(http://i43.tinypic.com/15ogg49.jpg)
 
(http://i44.tinypic.com/2l1a81.jpg)
 
 
Lets go to Mangart. The most beautiful road in Slovenian Alps.
(http://i44.tinypic.com/21nqhp2.jpg)
 
 
It will be better, maybe...
(http://i39.tinypic.com/28i2ern.jpg)
 
 
...but not this time. Waiting for better weather.
(http://i41.tinypic.com/301oyv9.jpg)
 
 
After half an hour the rain stops. Lets go!
(http://i39.tinypic.com/v83riw.jpg)
 
 
On the way to Mangart.

(http://i41.tinypic.com/259gwo7.jpg)
 
 
And then...
(http://i39.tinypic.com/f351k1.jpg)
 
...problems again. Where is the tunnel?
(http://i39.tinypic.com/2ni0ef6.jpg)
 
 
More bikes are coming.
(http://i41.tinypic.com/alizaa.jpg)
 
(http://i40.tinypic.com/2mwcaq8.jpg)
 
 
What can you do? Go back, nothing else.

(http://i44.tinypic.com/snzyon.jpg)
 
 
Over the Predil pass to Italy...
(http://i39.tinypic.com/2mh6d53.jpg)
 
 
...and in Pontebba on new pass to Paularo.
(http://i44.tinypic.com/apbw9k.jpg)
 
(http://i42.tinypic.com/2625ibq.jpg)
 
 
So we didnt make it.
(http://i40.tinypic.com/wtul2b.jpg)
 
(http://i42.tinypic.com/k96get.jpg)
 
 
After one hour fight with the mud and snow we are on the road again. Thanks to T63 tires.
(http://i39.tinypic.com/2jfln4g.jpg)
 
 
One and the only pansion in Paularo. Thats it for today.

On the mountains again. Nice off road.
(http://i40.tinypic.com/1z6wls4.jpg)
 
 
Ljubljana. Bicycles. Hundreds. We must wait in this heat. Who ride these things any more.
(http://i42.tinypic.com/2n7f9u0.jpg)
 
 
Bicycles, again...
(http://i43.tinypic.com/2hrd6p3.jpg)
 
And again. Runaway from Ljubljana. This is not town for us, today.
 
Somewhere in Slovenia. "Mean Machine"
(http://i43.tinypic.com/eziurs.jpg)
 
(http://i39.tinypic.com/aw43sg.jpg)
 
 
It is hot. Realy hot.

Back to Croatia.

Maybe with the XT...
(http://i43.tinypic.com/oisnpj.jpg)
 
(http://i43.tinypic.com/w2hbpl.jpg)
 
 
...but not with Tenere. The side case must be taken off.
(http://i43.tinypic.com/e0pooo.jpg)
 
(http://i39.tinypic.com/28sopea.jpg)
 
 
Piece of cake.
(http://i41.tinypic.com/2i0pspj.jpg)
 
 
Off road. Thats what we want.
(http://i44.tinypic.com/2i915dv.jpg)

(http://i40.tinypic.com/20fqd14.jpg)
 
(http://i41.tinypic.com/2j2dhs3.jpg)
 
 
...and over the bridge, again.
(http://i43.tinypic.com/2czdm41.jpg)
 
(http://i41.tinypic.com/20iiasz.jpg)
 
 
All the way home on the white roads. We get home at night, very tired but very happy.

How we came to do this ride...
We had heard that there was no off-road riding in Europe.  Being from Africa, I thought the Alps would be
the next best thing to Lesotho, so we decided to investigate.  We were pleasantly surprised at the rides in
the mountains.  Roads were comparable to anywhere else I have ridden.

We want to do it again next year.  From Croatia to Erzberg fitting in all new mountain passes that we have not ridden
and possibly some 2nd world war Alpine roads.  Anyone interested in joining us, let us know. Max 6 people.  Riding tempo
is hectic - from early morning to night fall. Great rides.
 
 
Thats all, folks!

very nice....how did the Tenere handle the tirip
Tenere was great.  Found it to be a little top heavy off road with a full tank.  Quite a bit to handle. Suspension great.  A lot better than the old XT.  1st gear slightly easier to ride through technical stuff.  Standing position better than old XT - quite high. On road a lot better than old XT.

Thank you very uch for sharing. Your pics did the talking.
Question now: which was the nicer bike of the two for the roads?
In the tighter sections I preferred the older XT660-R, but for overall touring with panniers, better wind protection etc. the new Tenere is better.

Great pics! Even better: the off-road trails in Croatia and Italy.

Have you got any GPS tracks from that trip?

Fantastic RR - The Dolomite's have been hailed as one of the best rides in Italy. Erzberg - an event of its own - with none other like it in the world. The passes and scenery are stunningly beautiful. It's on the bucket list. Thanks. :thumleft:

There are so many more beautiful passes between Italy,Austria and Slovenia that are less publicized! The best time to go is before the summer rush or just after. Every year we do a ride, either early spring or Autumn. Come join us one year!!

I have Austrian heritage (2nd generation) - no relation to Hitler  :biggrin:
Thanks for the invite - I may just do take you up on it. Keep the airways open. Currently looking at a Norway trip.  :ricky:

Stunning pics  :thumleft: I was over there in 2005 doing the Transalps MTB race and your photos bring back some great memories. Been wanting to go back ever since.
I'm guessing it would be cost prohibitive to ship our own bikes over. Is it possible to hire bikes over there to do a trip like this? Maybe you could even put a little package together for a few keen WD's?
