Hi, Frank and DJ, I am in Turkey at the moment heading for SA down the East Coast, head for Syria in three days time, will be ahead of you but may be able to give up to date information, I was in Transylvania a month or so ago, shame we didn't meet up. Stayed at Sighisoara and Sibiu in that region. Cheers Chris and Gill and a 1986 BMW R80G/S. Sorry that this has nothing to do with the original post but hey, we may meet up as you head North and I head South. The bike is white and heavilly overloaded.

Hi Meindert,
I'm flying to SA in late Jan/early Feb '03, I'm buying a bike there and then heading up back to England. Maybe we could meet up on your return route up the east coast? Give me a bell if you like, cheers,

Jasper
