Bike trip to Slovenia 2021

Bike trip to Slovenia 2021

My first motorcycle trip abroad!

Had been to Slovenia many many times since I moved to the UK aback in 2007 but mostly flying and mostly with easyJet. Drove here and back once in those years and that was only to do the inital move and then drive the car back as it was a Slovenian reg and a LH drive which didn’t make sense plus made the insurance a bit tricky. Due to all the COVID issues I decided to try my first biking trip to it.

My KTM in Wales in May 2021 - Click to enlarge I finally decided to replace my Honda NC750x DCT. The Honda was a great bike, very easy to use, never stalled due to its DCT gearbox but it was very underpowered. It was a bit of a job trying to keep up with my fellow IAM riders out on our Sunday rides. Plus it didn’t help seeing this video from Yammie Noob about the top 7 dorkiest bikes .
