The Haunting World of Bram Stoker on the Back of a BMW Motorcycle Listen to Garrison’s interview with Claudia Palfi of AdventureMotorcycle 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.

The Thrillseekers Guide, a program transmitted on Travel Channel filmed Adventure Motorcycle Motorcycles Tours in Transylvania.

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. 

Halleluja in Bucovina in 

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.

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.

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.

by Nik Simson

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!

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.
