Riding to Croatia May/June 2022​ 8)

Postby BoxerCup R » Mon Jan 24, 2022 9:53 am

After a non event for the past two years because of a cold :D , It's our annual Yamaha XJR Eurofest, It's being held in Medulin, Croatia this year & will be massive. So I'm riding there at the end of May, staying 5 days and then riding back :)  Carolyn is flying out with her bike gear for the 5 days in Croatia. The site they have organised looks beautiful

Carolyn and I have booked a static for the week. There are 20 bikes going from the UK but only one from Scotland.


I'm heading thru the tunnel to Calais then heading due South to stay overnight with a Mate in Treignac, mid France. Next day over the Alps via the Hannibal Route, Chambèry - Susa and on to a stop over in Northern Italy, haven't decided yet but probably Modena to visit the Ferrari or Lambo factory/museum's. Next day through he rest of Italy and around the coast into Croatia and down to Medulin.


On the way back I'm heading over the Italian/Austrian Alps and into Munich for an overnight. Next day up to an overnight at my Uncles in Dolgesheim then Monday 6th June up to 'The Ring' and an afternoon/evening on track - it's open :bounce:  stay overnight in Adenau then early start next morning to catch my train back to Blighty.


Should be an epic trip, some roads I've done but a lot I haven't which is always exciting, can't wait.

if you cross Ancona to Zadar, skip the ferry breakfast (very poor) and head down the coast road and there's a cafe called Boxer - cracking omelettes for breakfast
