THOSE DINER AND MOTORCYCLE GUYS
The Haunting World of Bram Stoker on the Back of a BMW Motorcycle Listen to Garrison’s interview with Claudia Palfi of Adventure Motorcycle Tours and Rentals, the most important motorcycle tours organizer in Eastern Europe:
When you hear the word “Transylvania,” what do you think about? Do you envision creaking doors, helpless maidens, howling wolves and flapping bats, caped noblemen with vicious fangs, thunder and lightning booming down on a desolate castle? Do you envision werewolves? Vampires? Bram Stoker? Dracula? Bela Lugosi? Vlad the Impaler?
The real Transylvania is a daylight fantasy filled with high altitude roads, lost-in-time villages and sun-drenched plains dotted with ancient churches and castle ruins.

wat moet je in Moldavie en Transnistrie Wat een uithoek. De Roemeense havenstad Galați beantwoordt helemaal aan het clichébeeld van een postcommunistische industriestad, die als een postapocalyptisch filmdecor fungeert.
Zwarte pijpleidingen, zwarte schoorstenen, zwarte wolken, zwarte plassen modder en gemorste olie op kasseien en spoorrails We zijn op weg naar de grensovergang met de Republiek Moldavië.

Roemenië is gemaakt voor motorrijders.
Het Balkanland staat op nummer één in Europa als het om avontuurlijke offroad- en enduroritten gaat.
Toerrijders rijden likkebaardend over de Transfăgărăşan. Maar ook de Transalpina en Transbucegi ontsluiten huiveringwekkend prachtige hooggebergten.
En dan zijn er nog de streken Banat, Maramures en Bukovina, waar tussen de bossen en bergen oeroude tradities worden gekoesterd.

Roemenië heeft geen beste reputatie. Vampiers, een stalinistische dictator en milieuverwoestende industrie Ën bepalen het beeld, dat recent nog werd aangevuld door skimmende en kunstrovende
Op reis met de motor door Maramures¸ ontdek je echter een ander beeld.

Many people say that adventure travel isn’t something that can be experienced on an organized tour, but I beg to differ, because everything is relative.

Transfagarasan Highway: Just when you think that things can’t get any better, they do. It’s like riding into a photograph that you recognize.
Hairpin bend after hairpin bend, climbing into the snow and clouds. The sight lines are perfect and all of the road is there to use. T
he sight lines are perfect and all of the road is there to be used. You don’t need to ride quickly and it doesn’t really matter what bike your riding, it’s all just spectacularly good.

The trip was exotic, humorous, sobering, wild, breathtaking, and visually spectacular.
To say this is one of the greatest things I’ve done on a motorcycle is a major understatement.
It’s hard to describe the region’s beauty but there’s many areas in Australia just as beautiful. I found the culture and the way of life of the Romanian people the special part of the trip.

There were, you see, a ruck of 650GS BMWs and one 1200GS. We were to draw lots for who rode which bike and muggins here got the last number to be drawn so I, basically, had to wait until the others’d picked their bikes and then take what was left.
We all assumed the 1200 was Alin’s and so they all picked a 650 and, when it was my turn, I was about to too when Alin walked across the remaining 650 and got on it.
That meant I got the 1200 – result!

Schon seit vielen Jahren fahren die Abenteurer mit ihren grobstolligen Enduros nach Rumanien und teilen dort urwuchsiges Gelande mit Baren und Wolfen.
Ein Geheimtipp, den auch Fahrer von Strasenmotorradern ins Kalkul ziehen sollten.
Riding Transylvania BMW ON Motorcycles Owners of America
by Court Fisher
With apologies to Bram Stocker’s Dracula and the contemporary vampire craze, riding in Romania’s Transylvania region is more exciting than a bite on the neck or learning how to kill the living dead.
Transylvania’s mix of cultural histories and conflict, medieval to baroque to modern architecture, horse-drawn carts clopping along European Union signage highways, the residue of Nicolae Ceausescu’s Soviet – era dictatorship, and riding the spectacular Transfagarasan Pass make for a very heady motorcycle jaunt.
Transylvania is not just about Vlad the Impaler (aka Dracula).
It happens to have some of the best motorcycle roads the world does n’t know about yet.
Any minute now, everyone else is going to discover Romania’s spectacular scenic roads, winding mountain passes and legend-rich medieval villages and castles, and you may miss the opportunity to have a mapful of breathtaking rides almost to yourself.
When you start dreaming about a riding.

Today we would have a weblog. But late 19th century, when the Dracula book appeared, there were diaries. Bram Stoker’s novel is therefore composed of diary entries from the fictional protagonists.
Cycle Torque from Australia

In 2010 Cycle Torque toured Transylvania with the Transylvania Live tour company. Simply put it was a fantastic trip, with fantastic guides, scenery, local people etc. One of the exciting parts of the trip was riding the Transfagarasan Road which was mind blowing. In the Top Gear program Jeremy Clarkson described it as possibly the best in the world.
