Hi,

I'm new memeber of this forum and also new owner of FJR from Slovenia.

If anyone is interested in visiting our country either organised as Tour riding or private visit, please drop a line into this thread.

For those who don't know where Slovenia is:
Our position is:
South of Austira
East from Italy
West from Hungary
North from Croatia.

It is ideal center for bike tours to Italian or Austrian Dolomites as well as visiting Croatian Adriatic coast.

Not to mention some beautiful roads/tours in Slovenia itself.

Some tourist info can be found here.

Best regards
gody

Nice to hear.
There is plenty nice roads to ride in Slovenia. It's speccial that You can ride all over a country in a day and also reutr
To expand a range, we do lots of riding in Austira and Northern Italy (Dolomites) which are in the days range to travel to.
If You'll visit Slovenia some time in the future let me know.

Hi, haven't read this foruim for a while.
I have GSM number in profile under location, so You can contact me with ring or SMS when You find a place in Piran. I'm about 4 hours from Piran with bike (not highway) or 2,5 hours on highway ...

Ha Ha I like the positioning. We're usually in England. That's East of Ireland, South of Scotland, North of just about everything that counts in Europe and according to the press, about 5 miles off the coast of USA. 8)

Very good choice.
Piran is not very interesting for motorcyclist anyhow, unles You are into swimming and laying around :)
When You arrive to Slovenia, I recomend to YOu that You get broshure called Next Exit in turist info office or perhapes even on Petrol station.
You have a lot of eful info in those papers as well as interesting maps with info on them.
