you can check out the planing so far at my personal website/blog: buebo.de prÃ¤sentiert: Projekt Balkan | buebo.de
For all those who can't read German the basic idea would be to catch a ride in a van for me and my bike to the Enduromania in Romania. After that ride around in Romania some more. Maybe go to Moldawia and Transnistrianiwitsch (or whatever it's called again) as well.
After that ride on to Odessa, spend a couple of days there and then catch the ferry to Istanbul, meet the Girlfriend there, spend some more time.
Next step would be to ride on eastwards through Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, maybe Kosovo, then northwards through Croatia.
From Austria I'd probably take the Autotrain or just carry on home to Germany.
Mind you, so far that's just the rough Idea and I haven't even calculated the distance and done any further planing.
As for the bike I don't have one so far but I'm looking at either a Yamaha TT600R (more fun offroad but a sore behind for sure) or a Honda Transalp (more fun on pavement but to fat for the enduromania).
So what about you spooky?
Edit: I wouldn't mind riding together for some time, at least if you won't mind having your picture taken when you're dirty, drunk or mad
And as for camping: I'll be bringing a small tent and a sleeping bag along, mainly just to have a fallback option when nothing else is available. My general feeling of security permitting I would also camp more often, however if decent lodging is available for a good price (should be that way at least in Romania) I'd prefer that.
