A quick photostory from an 8 Day trip from Germany to Estonia

In preparation for my summer Trans-Russia trip I rode the bike (clapped out nasty looking '87 Transalp) from my folk's house in western Germany to Tallinn in Estonia, riding through Poland, Lithuania and Latvia to Estonia. The sun shone most of the way.


Guess the landmark?


The Wall, East Side Gallery, Berlin


Tree lined lane, NW of Pniewy, Poland


Jean a French HUBBer, near Poznan, Poland and his 35k km Enfield Bullet "Buddha Buddha" (and Karma the Polish mountain dog)


The sidecar that'll get bolted onto Buddha Buddha


New Triumph dealership?!, Vilnius, Lithuania


Monument to Frank Zappa, Vilnius, Lithuania


Trakai Castle, Lithuania


2 dodgy Flyboy Geezers, 10 Litas note, Lithuanian currency


Views en route


Latvia/Estonia border and snow



Menu in Usbeck restaurant, Tallinn, Estonia



Memorial to the late, great Joey Dunlop, King of the Mountain N 59.27.612, E 24.50.227 I went there with the super helpful Nick in his 750 Ural Outfit.

Hope you liked these pictures.
Chris

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
