Europe tour 2011 - 5months

Hello everyone,

I am a final year university student planning my 5 month tour around Europe, June-November 2011, and looking for other adventurous bikers that fancy joining me...

The route is flexible,but the countries I want to see, in a logical clockwise order are...
france, belgium, netherlands, germany, poland, slovakia, hungary, romania, bulgaria, greece, macedonia, Yugoslavia, croatia, slovenia, austria,switz, italy and then home through france for tea....

I have ridden sports bikes for a few years, but now either getting a BMW f800gs, or a Yamaha xt660z tenere for the journey.

All for budgeting and camping in those great locations, but also spending on activities like bungee jumping, sky diving etc....

I am pretty easy going guy, 21, up for an adventure after the slog of university, have a pilots license which I want to use in some of the countries we visit, and obviously a spare seat....
Due to saving up since about 6yrs old for flying training, I havent travelled much, and would like to share the same thrill as someone similar...

"there are people who talk about doing things, and then there are people that just do it"

I'll watch the bikes while you skydive.

May peel off south to Morocco on the way back. Not sure of bike yet - perhaps XT660Z or the new Triumph Tiger Adventure depending on what it's like.

Drop me a PM.
