On the picture above I am riding on pure ice! You can barely even walk on it never mind ride on it. So you can imagine how many times we were eating snow and buying land  :biggrin:

Where in Croatia do you live?

We were there in December/New Year - Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Plitvice and New Year in Zagreb. Way too much Tomislav beer. Zivjeli! :peepwall:

I love Croatia and the people are wonderful.  :thumleft:

We live in Split. Next time you are here give us a call, we have a tourism business with motorcycles. The best time to come is summer!  :)

Next time you are here, give us a call! We do motorbike tours as well as cruising! If you are in Split for a day or two I could take you for a ride and show you the inland a bit.

if only i had known... we sat in split for 3 weeks waiting for a charter (in the le meridien lav marina). had weekends off so that would've been awesome!
i did a road trip to go see the waterfalls at skradin, but got badly lost!
i thought it was strange that the entrance to the waterfalls was so heavily guarded and that you needed a passport to enter... until the hottie in police uniform and aviators in the booth politely informed me that i was actually at the bosnian border post!
hahaha  :imaposer:

Hahahahaha Ya, it would seem to me that you got just a little bit lost!  :biggrin: When we first moved here I was riding mountain passes and ended up in Bosnia missing all the border posts! When you come back again don't forget us!

All these snow ride come down to one thing - Snow is soft and rideable, ice is all fall down. Conclusion is a broken collaar bone, damaged shoulder, whiplash and a very annoyed wife! Stuck at home without my bike. What i wouldn't do for a nice warm De wild ride!

New topic coming soon with some warmer ride pictures!! - WATCH THIS SPACE -
