Thumbs up Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Montenegro

Hello, I´m gonna give a walk around balkans this summer and I´ve rent a KLR 650 with these guys, do know them? Home
They are from Montenegro, then my wife and I will go near the coast of Croatia and then Slovenia, Bosnia and south again.
Any advice or recommendation?
Thanks in advance

We have been in BiH, Montenegro, Croatia and Albania the last 3 years. With backpacks and motorbike. All countries are great for travel especially with the motorbike.

I would recommend to go to the Durmitor National Park it is beautiful and not a lot of people are going there. Do not only stay at the coast as you would miss the best streets for riding.

Just get some taste:



Also along the Skadar Lake you have plenty nice spots on both sides. In Albania go to takea trip lake Koman, take the ferry or take the street to Puke and Fierze...simply amazing. I am happy togive some more Information...

We used a trailer to get the bikes from Germany to BiH. So I don't have any experiences with renting a bike down there.

I have a question, If you don´t mind:

- About gas stations, is there any singularity like french g.s. or you just pay with cash and thats it. Do you make it by yourself or there is someone in charge of it?

gas stations

Cash is a "way to go" . Most of petrol stations are modern type and they do accept credit cards, all accept money (but you had to have local currency or you might have problems or they will overcharge you) . "Automatic" (without personal) are rare.

Quite a lot of petrol stations I visited on my trip had someone to put the fuel in for you, if busy though I sometimes did it myself. I paid cash all the time rather than use the card, I could keep an eye on what i was spending and I never got overcharged as you can see the price on the pump

Hi Gepetin:

All of the former Yugoslavian countries are well along the path to 'modernization'. Hence in all of them you will be able to find big gas stations that look exactly like the new stations in Spain - heck, even the Red Bull and the chocolate bars are in the same place on the shelves as in Spain.

At these newer stations, you can 'pay at the pump' with a credit card, and you can fill your own moto.

Of course, you can still find much older stations where someone will want to operate the pump for you (because it is very old, perhaps lacks an automatic shut-off), cash is preferred, etc. Just avoid stopping at those ones.

Michael
