20/E49 : Tasovice - Becov nad Teplou

Western Czech > Czech Republic > Europe
September 21, 2008 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

A truly great route, with sweepers and twisties. It follows a valley up from Karlovy Vary, at one point it crosses over a dam (just too bad one cant stop midway over for a photoshoot). If you do this one, you really should also do the one Westwards on road 230. If there are more roads like this in the Western Czech republic, then someone ought to share them with the rest of us. Personally, I would gladly go back and look for more. Top ratings from me.

Lots of fun corners to keep you on your toes, then some good straights. It follows a valley (that goes all the way up from Karlovy Vary). If you do this one, you really should also do the one Eastwards on road 20/E49. If there are more roads like this in the Western Czech republic, then someone ought to share them with the rest of us.

Another bike-hike in Ukrainian mountains, Karpaty. Heavily loaded bike is not always suitable for ride in mountains after heavy rain - mud, stones and deep ruts will show you things... Anyway, riding the meadows on the top of these mountains worth spending many hours by pushing the bike to the hill.

Mountain hike on meadows with motorcycle. Stones, mud, grass, blueberries, peak at 1600m, stones and mud again, and finally - vodka. Samogon. A lot of...

Rust and dust of Aral Sea

Uzbekistan > Uzbekistan > Asia
April 12, 2015 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Uhm... Definitely nothing for supersports. This is pure adventure - rusty ships in the ´desert´ of Aral Sea, ´wading´ of dry river Amy Darya, missing roads in the sand and finally searching for the civilisation. Welcome to Uzbekistan! Riden by: XTZ750

3000m passes: Kazarman - Balykchy

Kyrgyzstan > Kyrgyzstan > Asia
April 12, 2015 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This route runs across two passes at 3000m level. Surface: dirt, mud, gravel, stones. Tarmac exceptionally (last 80km to Balykchy). Traffic during two days: some Audi 80s, Ladas, marshruts and myriads of cows, horses and childs. Not recommended in or after heavy rain either. Great enduro! Ridden by: XTZ750

M34: Khojand - Dushanbe

Tajikistan > Tajikistan > Asia
April 12, 2015 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Amazing route across mountains in Tajikistan from north to capital city. Mostly good tarmac with nice turns, wonderful sceneries, huge mountain peaks above and river somewhere deep below. Watch out for sheeps, goats and wasted SHACKMAN trucks benind turns. Also rainy weather could prepare some hot moments. But the most interesting, unbelieveble, dangerous, ... [whatever] thing of all: Anzob tunnel. (Google it!) 5,5km long hell in dark, smoke, water and noise. Definitely worth it!
