    Mega Balkan trip

    This trip was planned for last year but due to Covid and the lack of understandable information about the rules and situation as most Balkan countries don't have English pages with the needed information i postponed it until it was clear that i could go without being rejected at the border.
    Last year i went to Sicily as an 4th alternate plan (had to keep changing the plans), also a great trip but in two weeks i will leave for a solo trip of 7300km trip through 16 countries as i had planned for last year.



    At this moment the CT is taken apart for maintenance finishing Sunday as i have to work tomorrow and i had to wait for some parts that where delayed (but that's why i started it last week).
    I will start the trip with new tyres, brake pads, brake fluid, oil and filters (air filter is an K&N but cleaned and oiled). Still had to do the rear braided brake lines from the Hel kit but they are fitted now.
    Just have to clean the calipers and pistons and install the new brake pads before putting the wheels with the fresh set Anakee Adventures back in/on and give him a good wash. Did a quick wash before the maintenance but it's full of fingerprints now  :164:
    This how he's sitting now...



    More about the maintenance and my life around the bikes you can find @ www.ride4life.nl
    The first 5 blogs are in Dutch but then i figured it might be better to do them in English.
    Blogs from my trips come with video as well and the upcoming trip will be covered too.
    You can subscribe to the blogpost to get an email when i post new content if you're interested.

    At this moment the clock showes 97831. On my trip to Sicily last year i took a picture with 80.000 and this trip the 100.000 hopefully comes at a place where i can stop for another picture.
