Anyone thinking of riding to/through Romania this year, we have lived here for a couple of years now and can offer good info on biking and other general info on the country, the weather is great here in the summer and there's lots to see.
Wife and I will be in Bulgaria/Romania during the last two weeks in April, first week in May. Where in Romania are you?. We hope to see both countries but realise that 3 weeks ain't that long. We are aiming to at least see Brasov and bits of Transylvania. We are primarily property and business opportunity hunting plus of course having a road trip.
Hi, my wife and I will be travelling through Romania this year on our way to Australia. We are not in any hurry and would like to make the most of our visit to Romania. Any suggestions on the 'must see' places would be really appreciated.....Bob
Don't miss Bulgaria in your trip. There are many places to be seen.I will be glad to help you about any questions on Bulgaria.I will meet Diksi and his wife in April when they come to Bulgaria. I hope we will have great time together.
Have fun, Deso.
That must be a very interesting place to live! Whereabouts are you? And what are you doing there?
I am planning to ride to Romania at the end of next month (on an R100GS-PD). I should be travelling with my friend Jim (R1100RS) - but he has just crashed his bike, so it may not be ready in time. We are planning to meet up in Budapest with Jim's wife Mari, who is from Bucharest, and possibly my wife Emma and some others. We'll then go to Cluj and travel around the west of Romania for a few days. May try to avoid Bucharest though, as Jim's mother-in-law lives there!
Any suggestions? Do you ride your GS off road there?
I am ýn Turkey for the moment, but wýll travel through Romanýa (agaýn) on my way back home. I have to be ýn stockholm, Sweden 1 june.

Just returned from a fantastic time 8in Romania. The good feelings started once we left Bulgaria and were welcomed into their country by the Romanian border staff. Fantastic scenery, cracking folk and excellent weather. We can,t wait to go back.
If you are in Transylvania check Chris of TMTours out ( tmtours.freeservers.com ), top bloke who acted as our guide and mentor for three days and showed us some fabulous places.
For people looking for new experiences Romania should definitely be on the list.
Hi People, I hope to be passing through the Romania/Bulgaria highlands in mid Sep - early Oct en route to Turkey - Syria - Jordan - Egypt prior to heading down to Cape Town. Keep up the position reports and we´ll have a in passing. Ride safe, Mike
last year I rode over TransAlps through Urdele pass. This year I am also interesting to spend two-three days in area where there is a lot of gravel roads over the mountains. Maybe you can help me to define proper route? Count that I intend to enter Romania from south Hungary or north Serbia.
