I will upload gpx tracks of these rides to my web site ADV Tracks | Gps Tracks Sharing Community as soon as I finish testing the website.
It is a project for my Web programming class, but I decided to put it online, to see what will happen

just recently back

Seeing you photos makes me want to go back now !
Was in HR / BiH a couple of weeks ago. Fab place loved it all. You look as if you were off track a bit, I decided to stay on tracks well worn by locals only, just in case of load bangs, they can spoil a trip.

Glad you like it. I know where the load bangs hide, so I avoid them

Hello Marcm, great If you come, I buy

Yesterday we had a little ride. 250 km total. We started from Split, and followed river Cetina upstream to its spring. Then we took Napoleons road through Krčić canyon to Krčić fall. Great views. From Knin to Drniš accros Promina mountain. We did not make it home by offroad because of the dark
Map and track:
Trilj – Knin - ADV Tracks

Great ride, a bit hard for heavier bikes.

I ended up at Knin after getting slightly lost trying to get back towards coast,had came down centre of Croatia,turned down by the big lake with the pipe after the tunnel through top of mountain,then end up ervenik sort of area?...that probably is not a very good description but you may get the idea.
Didnt get any pics that as camera went flat,I had a night in a hotel down towards sinj on the left as by time I had got back to anywhere on map it was very late and very dark..
Headed off into Bosnia on the following day,then ended up at Dubrovnik a couple later..

Great pics. That is Tjentište in Bosnia

The lake with pipe could be Velebit power plant (the pipe pumps water back in a lake when power consumption is low).
Ervenik area is between Knin and the coast.

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. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
