Too much rides and barbecues, last two days couldn’t update anything.
We went for a ride around on the island, roads are almost empty, no tourists so nice sporty ride out.
Generally very good tarmac, when dry, nice fast, long corners for speeds 80, 90 miles/hr.
Perfect weather 20 to 25 degrease Celsius.

Went to southern tip of the island called Baska

Up on return, barbecue preparation and execution,

Spent a happy couple of months down the road a bit in Split standing by a new build in Brodosplit yard. August and September, lots of wine not too much work. Winner.
Back in the blue. No bikes.....

Still good weather very pleasant 25 degrees, dry no rain, today went to Istria, coastal road called by local bikers plominka as per local village that going to. Very nice road, good surface, lot of corners, fast and slow, very technical. No speed cameras no police and more important no tourists.

Quick update, no bikes last night as we went for beer tasting, not that I am responsible adult who don’t drink and drive :D (Croatians are better driver when drunk anyway), but we were barely able to walk away.
8 full beer glasses just 70 kuna (local money), it’s around 10 €, 8£.......

It’s real hedonistic trip, barbecues, peka, wine, beer, I will have to consider serious diet up on return.
My riding gear is getting tide, fortunately tomorrow I am on the way back to UK.

Yes it does have a strange effect on our directions, I think we are planning a trip to Croatia next year, just your standard tourist type but I will be contacting you for advice.
