Hi all, I just thought I would share with you a trip that my wife and I have just returned from along with two friends. 6000kms long. We are from Australia and hired some motorbikes in Bournemouth UK then met our tour at Folkstone. Our tour was operated by Magellan Motorcycle tours and called the Balkans tour. Felix Billington is the owner and how his tours work basically are you receive a very comprehensive set of GSP co ordinates with all waypoints etc etc. Prior to you arriving you load all of this information into your GPS. If you cant Felix is there to assist. All accommodation is booked at great places and the majority of evening meals and breakfast is included. Each morning you get a briefing and if you wish you can head off at your own pace or join up in small groups, you end up meeting the majority of riders at lunchtime and of course in the evenings at the hotels to talk about your days riding. Felix is always around to assist where necessary and believe you me he is on the ball. We went through France , through Germany ( B500) Austria (Gross Glockner) Slovenia, and all of Croatia. The sights were fantastic and everywhere we went the people were great and were always willing to help. We had 10 British people on the tour mostly with GS1200's as well Six Aussies For the people that live close to these areas you are very spoilt with the beautiful scenery and high quality roads. It was a trip I will never forget. When I work out how to put photos on I will add a couple. Cheers to all Rod.
