If you start in Huedin, you'll climb from around 550m altitude up to 1200m near Poiana Horea and back to 900m at the end in Albac. During this climb you'll be mostly sorounded by evergreen forests but there are some beautifull views. The road surface is mixed:
- from Huedin to Poiana Horea are many bumpy sections but also some very good ones
- from Poiana Horea to Horea the road surface is overall good, but you need to pay attention to some potholes and and 2 or 3 corners with gravel
- from Horea to Albac the road surface is very poor and on some sections the asphalt is almost destroid.
Overall you can go on this road with almost every kind of motorcycle, except sporty ones.
Nice rural/mountain route and one of the main acces roads to Maramures region. The scenery is pleasent and near Moisei is spectacular(the spread villages all over the mountain and in the south you can see Pietrosul Rodnei Peak).
The road surface is various from good quality aspahlt to some unpleasant undulation in the highest part(but only a few kilometers. It's a good choice insted of DN18 Moisei-Iacobeni(it's horrible, full of potholes, and undulation - accessible only for adventure bikes).
One of the best routes in Romania. Unfortunately the road works are stopped for now and the aspahlt is full of pothholes and undulations. I'll post a new review after it's finished.
A magnificent mountainous, until Vatra Dornei the road condition is perfect giving high speeds with lots of open corners enjoying the same time the great scenery. From Vatra Dornei towards Borsa (45km appr) the road is really terrible with lots of holes and dangerous spots, be vigiland, but the scenery is amazing (altitude appr 1400m, Tihuta pass). The Maramures region is a UNESCO protected region due to the traditional wooden churches which can be found mainly after Borsa towards Sighetu Marmatiei.
A nice rural route through the northern end of Apuseni Mountains. Between Ciucea and Cizer is the most interesting part of the road with some nice corners to ride. The rest of it is a pleasent ride for views.
