At times when I was driving in total solitude, thinking if I was living a dream and realizing that I was that dream my heart would fill up with joy so I would let go of the grip from the handle-bar and with my arms wide open to the sky I would scream like a madman, oh yes ! because in order to do what I am doing I must be mad , mad like Van Gogh...

I believe that you need 3 fundamental things in order to travel long distances by motorbike:
two wheels with an engine , some petrol along the way and the desire to go places and to Me that one, sure does not lack…

We are a family business offering guided motorcycle tours in Southern Spain through white villages, national parks and glorious mountain passes in rural Andalucia.
We are just about ready to depart from Yorkshire in United Kingdom on charitable motorcycle trip to Nezhin in Ukraine. The MotoFest in Nezhin is an annual gathering of bikers from Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. The charity we support is called British Humanitarian Aid, based in Canterbury, Kent. We would like to attract some sponsorship; all the funds raised will be used by BHA to provide aid in or around Chernihiv region of Ukraine. We are going to be able to place on this blog a selection of photographs/videos from that trip , which on outgoing leg will take us through Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungry, Romania and Moldovia. While in Romania we plan to ride on Transalpine and Transfagarasan routes. The blog also contains a link to our tracking page, where our actual position will be available during the trip.
Please feel free to comment on the site.
