    Hi all.
    Do you know the heroes of the movie "Wild Hogs"? So 4-in-1 it is about me :)) Well, almost.
    Frankfurt - Prague, ca. 6-7 hours.
    Motorcycle vignettes are not required in the Czech Republic. Prague and dark beer are great. Spent the night with my son, he is student in Prague University . Temp. is +38C (100F) Trophy is fine, fans sometimes hum)) I'm hot.

    I will be writing a travel diary here. If you are interested, write questions in private, I will try to answer.

    Hi Alex
    I am so envious of your being only a days ride from central Europe and all it's touring possibilities.
    And I see you bought one of the "faster" silver Trophies - good choice.  :152:
    Have a great trip to the Caucasus (sounds intriguing - maybe the Transvagarasan?) and I hope it cools down a bit for you.
    Life isn't a dress rehearsal so enjoy it.

    It will be a pleasure to follow that trip, yes, post a daily photo so that we can follow that trip more closely...

    OK)
    Next days:
    I reached Vienna (Austria) and spent the night at a campsite on the shore of a beautiful Neusiedler lake.
    My trip is impromptu. I don't have a plan. I love mountains, old fortresses and the sea. The morning is wiser than the evening:)
    I thought that the detour ( "hook":)) through Transalpina and Transfagarashan isn't so big already ...
    and the next day I rushed to Romania))
    The first town in front of the Transalpina - Alba Lulia and castles around.

    Good size of local wine:


    Alba Lulia - history of the Rome Empire:


    Hunedoara Castle:

    Vignettes are needed for motorcycles in Austria and Hungary. In Austria is the sticker on the windshield, in Hungary, just an electronic registration. You should  buy it right at the border. Roads that are fast are toll roads. Minimum 10 days - 5 euros.
