New member says hello!
I just subscribed today. I searched for a skidplate for my Yamaha XT600E, when google directed me to this wonderfull site. What a wealth of information! Many thanks to all the people who give so many tips and help. I immediately subscribed.
Short info about myself: I live in the Netherlands and currently drive a Yamaha XT600E 2001. I drive motorcycles for 10 years now on a Honda Magna, Suzuki SP370 and currently the XT. traveling around the world has always been a dream for me. But untill now I don't have the guts to do so.
So I started small. First I went solo to Nortcape in 2005. Almost 13000 beautifull Km's through Sweden, Finland and Norway. This was a test if driving solo for 1 month was something for me. The answer was a big YES!
Then this summer I drove to Island for 1 month. An amazing country! Especcially the highlands are very very impressive. Now I want to travel even more.
Sow for this summer I plan to go to Romania, through Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and back through Bulgaria, Greece and Italia. I allready have found much information about Romania on this site. Thanks! Planning the trip truly is half the fun.
Currently I have Tesch panniers, and a Garmin GPS. For this trip I am planning to by a Acerbis 23L tank, and a skidplate. Every year I upgrade my travel gear somehow.
But enough about me. I continue reading now, through all the wonderfull stories and travel tips.
Best regards, Hans (newby in traveling and on this site)
