Sunday morning was time for me to say goodbye to another incredible group of CouchSurfers.

Last breakfast

The famous one is leaving

Getting dressed
So I left. Since my Garmin Oregon 550 was a little confused, because I turned off motorways and so he kept on calculating I decided to ride for a while to the South. After some time of easy cruising I saw this sign.

That's not Germany anymore! Now I just realised how close to France we were all the time, and now I know, that I entered mainland France at their most eastern point in Lauterbourg, Alsace. It was time to turn on the motorways on my Garmin, and soon I was riding east. In Ulm I decided to return to preferred direction, South, towards TyrolAustria. I was already tired of long highways and riding without a mirror didn't help either. In Austria I rode on side roads and I passed two roads with more than 1500 meters altitude, Gerlos pass and Felbertauernstrasse with Felbertauerntunnel.

Price was 4.40€ for me, because they didn't accept Maestro card and I was out of cash

Slovenia was closer and closer and after 860 kilometres and 12 hours and a half of riding I was finally home. My back wouldn't bend even for a soup in a prison floor anymore.

3 days, 1900 kilometres

And here it is, finally. Video from our CouchSurfing Invasion to Germany 2011.


Morning came soon and also the time for breakfast with our big family.

Markus and Wilhelm joined us in the morning
It was time for our tour, that Rudi planed over the night.

After some riding I tried to overtake Marc's Ducati. I was successful, but only till the first corner, where I slided into the grass. I had a big luck and my stupidity was not punished as it could be, only some dirty clothes, broken mirror and bent clutch lever. Lesson learned, never overtake a Ducati.

Today I had a very short day at work, because my evening destination was Germany, Frankenthal, RUUUDIII's place, also known as Casa Imperfectus. My plan was to attend 3rd Germany Invasion, which is a CouchSurfing event for motorbikers.

CouchSurfing is great
So I started at 10 o'clock and there was more than 700 kilometres of roads ahead of me. I rode over Ljubelj to Austria, where I decided not to use motorways. Near Salzburg it started to rain, but I waited too long to put my rain clothes on, so I was already wet a little. Nevertheless I put my yellow clothes on and after 15 minutes the rain stopped. It's nice to see Murphy in action, especially if you are a little bit in a hurry and you can almost smell  food from barbecue, which is still more than 400 kilometres away. So I removed the clothes and soon I was in Germany, on their highway towards Munich. My friend Murphy decided to have some traffic jams there, but I was still quite on schedule, since if you are with motorbike, you just ignore standing vehicles. And the same story was also near Augsburg, Ulm, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe and in the end I finally arrived to Rudi's place in Frankenthal and I immediately saw my welcome drink was ready. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeer.

764 kilometers to get a beer?
Soon, I met some very nice people, saw some nice motorbikes, drank some beers, ate some food. It was a great evening. You all rock boys and girl.

Rudi, our host, the boss, the organizer, ... You're the man!

Wednesday, August 17, 2011


Today, my Yamaha FZ6 S2 Fazer got new shoes after only 7000km. I guess if I am riding alone, the tyres are more under pressure.

Dunlop Roadsmart 120/70/17 and 180/55/17


Order is for idiots, genius can handle chaos.


Going back is always the hardest thing, but we managed it. On our way back we stopped at Gostilna Ankele, where we ate and then we all went home, where we arrived safe and sound.
Total costs per person were 160€ (65€ ticket, 35€ hostel, 60€ for the van, gas, vignettes and sandwiches) + what each of us drank and ate in those 3 days.

Thank you


Race day in Masaryk Circuit. Driving with trams 2 and 1 and bus 400 to the circuit can quite long sometimes, but we were not late.
