    Thanks for the name change

    Here is the road:
    N45.17759, E23.67219
    to
    N45.90539, E23.55670

    It's called TransAlpinna
    The non paved road is Strategica. From the lake (mid itinerary) to the East
    People said that is a very old road (2000+ years) used by the Romans...

    5-6,000ft elevation
    Very quiet and the air si very clean

    Trans-Aplinna is not officially opened, so you go on your own risk, no insurance there
    Road is not done, and no protection on the side.

    Very dangereuse when fog, basically when in clouds, you cannot see the road, and of-course there are stupid guys showing off on their SUV-s
    Lots of accidents during the year.

    Police wanted to close it down, but there were too many foreigners to try it, basically in Romania are 2 famous roads, and this is one of them.
    So, they ended up installing just 2 signs:



    "Closed road for public traffic"

    in between:
    N45.29241, E23.68805
    and
    N45.42641, E23.62024

    (sorry, I hate this stupid new google maps, I cannot attach a link)

    Road is available June - October. And no surprise if you can get snow in August...

    Price is killing too..., I paid for this one $16k. I tested my wife endurance....
    Panniers and top case included, new tires.., basically bike is new at this mileage with an agricutural tractor engine...,

    I might let you try mine
    I got new shocks from Germany (Wilbers), new stands ofcourse and Sargent seat.
    I got the seat now below 31 1/2.

    But, GOD!, I hate the arrogance of BMW. They stopped me to bring my old 1150GSA and I have habd bad experiences in Romania, Sweden and France.
    In Sweden it was pouring cats and more dogs, I stopped by the dealership to get a low beam bulb changed. They saddly said that they have a meeting so in 2 hours they can do it. I left, otherwise I'd lose the ferry
    In France, I had a problem with the fog lights.
    They said is a 30 days line-up. "Okay but i ride 'round the world, try to understand, I need more lights...!!!"
    "Sorry, call the hot-line!"

    On the hot line: "What year is the bike?"
    "Hmmmm??????"
    "What year is your bike??"
    "2003!"
    "Sorry the hot line is for newer bikes!"

    Like here, BMW is building bikes for showing off, is a status, and less and less reliable.., they don't need the reputation no more...

    On the other hand, the 8+ gallon tank I am crazy about, and the telelever suspension that makes to bike run like a dog hit by rabbies on the curves..., made me chose it before Super-Tenere and the KTM (chain transmisson)

    Now I seen that even Michigan police are buying their machines...
    Yeah, very upset on BMW, but for me is the best compromise

    So, we can talk Chris about the GSA's. You need only the green bills,

    See you guys

    Very interesting Cezar... I like how well versed you are in them.

    But for me I'm a one steed garage for a while. Don't have the spare $$$ or garage space.
