After forcing our way to Romania for the past 2 days, finally the time has come for the first major point of our trip. We were about to ride to and through ParΓ’ng Mountains Transalpina!
Althought, as it was May, we knew there was still snow laying up there and the road was probably damaged and not yet fixed after the winter, so we wondered how far we can go?
Also we knew that the road will be probably offcially closed, so will we have any problem to enter it above Obarsia?
But no doubts no fun. We were about to check it on our own.

As we got two days of Poland national holidays extra at the beginning of May, we, the avid creatures, decided to ask for some extra leave at work and tried to get 9 work-free days in a row, just for us to go… well, to go somewhere. The decision was so off the cuff we didn’t even have a plan back there. We started to plan just few weeks ahead, like ok, we have our free time, but where should we go now? Where we will get just in 9 days by a motorbike? Austria? Slovenia? Maybe just Slovakia as time is so short…? And then we saw a photo of Transalpina in April and the decision about the travel direction was obvious – we are going to Romania, no matter what.

My poor old TDR was put to sleep for the winter with some long bug list to fix. Steering head bearings, brakes, cabureator, front fork, water pump sealing… The more we were taking TDR into pieces in the garage, the longer the to-do list seemed to grow. At some point I even started to laugh (through tears!) that maybe I will assemble her and bring back to the living in the next spring.
