In the last episode we started the offroad trails…
One of them was cut short because of the KTM’s feaver
122 C? It got hotter standing still?
The second trail didn’t go that well either
How’s the road?
Ok, how should we go about it?
Grab hold of it and back it off
And on the second trail we missed all the objectives
Let’s have a closer look, we just went past the objective
All in all it was a wonderful day
We leave Jajce. Today’s track, just like every other day
is yet to be decided.
All we know is we wanted to get to a pyramid on a hilltop
The roads are awesome
free as they can get
curves, potholes, wind, gravel
We find our way to what seemed like a ski resort
We named it “Ranca” (like a Romanian ski resort)
and we stop for the morning coffee
There’s an illycaffè!
That’s a 5, no, 7 starts joint!
From the beginning of this journey, and till the end
All 6 have been cold, each at a time
Now is Mihai’s turn, he’s not feeling to well today
Wait, wait, wait for it…
Chher up everyone, the other bike too…
This place looks just like Ranca
Ddid you enjoy the road here?
It was awesome!
We should rent a horse
Take it for a spin offroad
Misu, should we get a horse?
That must be a GS!
The GS is coming!
Those are just as wide!
We leave Ranca for the famous pyramid
My friends learn this is the Visoko Pyramid of the Sun
its origins have been quite controversial among researchers
It starts raining and it’s freezing cold
I’ll also put the rain pants on
..so I don’t get my balls wet
Where is that, over there?
We past some villages,
and we end up in “cosmos”
… at the “Cosmos” terrace in Visoko, what did you think?
Move a bit forward please
Wow, the guys are taking us to the VIP lounge
The guys find a cozy spot on the couches
and we all wait for the dark clouds to pass by
Meanwhile, they manage to catch a quick power nap
…snoring and everything included
For more details (not about the snoring part) and pictures go to the motorcyclingTO Facebook page
We should also fuel up
All done here..
The sun is up again, no sign of the rain so we head towards the pyramid
I think that’s the way
Should we turn right?
The track goes forward…
Vlad, what is your take?
Easy does it…
Here’s a bunch of tourists
We finally get there and admire it from afar
like all common mortals
Pyramid of the sun my ass…
Guys, let’s dress up, that cloud is heading this way
We’ll have to stop in 10 minuts anyway…
Have a look
Should we dress up?
At least put the pants on
The rain jacket goes on easier
It already started raining
Look over there, it is already pouring!
Yea, and it’s heading our way…
We soon leave and it looks like the clouds want to join the group too
Fortunately we soon manage to outrun them
Guys, in winter does it snow around here?
I wonder how locals manage to drive around these streets in winter
Just look at these slopes
I’ll just turn around here in front at this gate
High fives all around!
Come on kids!
You should have seen their smiles!
I think this is the spot
That seemed to be it, go in there guys
The GPS points to that sideroad
The guys also manage to find a camping
but it doesn’t seem to be the one we’ve been sent to
The one the girl sent us to seems to be a bit off
Tomorrow you’ll feel better!
Luci will fix a shot for you
Yeah, an aspirin shot!
Ask him whether there’s another camping around
Well, he’s the owner of this palce…
In the end my friends decide this camping is way too quiet
…not something they’re accustomed to
they decide to continue ahead for a few more kilometers
and if they don’t find a more suitable place to return here
Yeah, what did you expect?
That place seems to be very close.. when we turned the bike around,
in that curve, there’s another entrance with some little flags
I think that’s the place.. let’s check it out anyway
That’s it, near the flags where the grey car is parked.
Looks like there’s another one up in front.. “rent a boat”…
Oh, this is the second entrance…
My GPS indicates it’s just that way
Check out that little house in the middle of the lake!
…and here we are
We ended up in a camping near the lake
The sign at the entry read “Welcome bikers”
What more could we ask for?
We have been, for a night,
part of that special family
they weocomed us wholeheartedly, they caught fish for us
and cooked amazing food
They made us feel incredible!
In the next episode we go on one of the most challenging offroad trails of the trip
…and the weather.. does not seem to be on our side.
…or is it?
I am Motokoto.
