DN7C / Transfagarasan Pass : Cârtisoara - Curtea de Arges

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
September 1, 2010 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

The Transfăgărăşan (trans (over, across) + Făgăraş) or DN7C is the highest (~2200m) and most dramatic paved road in Romania. Built as a strategic military route by Nicolae Ceauşescu, the 110 km of twists and turns run North to South across the tallest sections of the Carpathian Mountains, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu. The road connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia, and the cities of Sibiu and Piteşti.

DN67C : Transalpina ( Novaci - Ranca - Obarsia Lotrului - Sugag - Sebes )

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
July 17, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.4

DN67C is No. 2 Romanian biking road in terms of both scenery and turns (Transfagarasan (DN7C) is still number one). Spectacular high alpine view ("trans" = crossing the). Newly asphalted road, about 5 km. are still waiting to be asphalted in summer of 2011, but no problem even now, as the road is already prepared. Check for availability, it should be opened from June 1. You may find accommodation in Ranca (relatively new ski resort). There is an alternative, from Sugag - Dobra - Jina - Saliste - Sibiu, which is more atractive from scenery point of view and it will be more attractive also for corners, once the road is finished (curently prepared to be asphalted). Near Novaci you may want to visit "Polovragi" cave - in the village with the same name or "Muierii" (that is Women's) cave.

DN66 : Petrosani - Târgu Jiu

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
November 9, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

A mixed road that is very enjoyable. It starts off a bit patchy but then becomes an excellent forest road in beautiful surroundings with some nice corners. It was raining when I rode it on my GS but it was still fun as there are no junctions to speak of so hazards are quite low.

Swakopmund to Windhoek on gravel

Namibia > Namibia > Africa
April 21, 2015 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

320km gravel ride. Starts in desert on sandy/gravel road then heads into hills for an amazing twisty-turkey rollercoaster. Requires an adventure or dirtbike with decent off-Tarmac tyres.
