Turkey Motorcycle Tour Days 49 to 51 – Aussies in Eceabat

16 September 2011 I’d expected to meet Aussies here. Probably three out of every four tourists staying in Eceabat are Aussies or Kiwis. Must be Oz/Kiwi overload on 25 April. I’d decided to stay at Hotel Crowded House. Seemed the right thing to do. Was a good place too and highly recommended. No sooner had […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Days 49 & 50 – I Made It!

14 September 2011 I’d always wanted to come here. Many Australian’s and Kiwi’s do. It’s almost like a pilgrimage. It was one of the main reasons for doing the Turkey motorcycle tour and I’d gotten there via the scenic route. At about 17:58 on Wednesday, the 14th of September I finally made it, after about […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Day 48 – Çeşme

13 September 2011 The ride to Çeşme was a pleasant motorway blast of about 100km due west of İzmir with nice coastal views. İzmir is a big city, shrouded in a haze of pollution and humidity. As I escaped the city limits clear blue skies once again emerged, creating the perfect backdrop for the ocean and coastline. Çeşme is […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Day 48 – New Brake Pads

13 September 2011 It wasn’t far from Selçuk to Izmir. I’d estimated it would take about an hour. And happy days. Today I went through a radar and didn’t get a fine. They were everywhere around Selçuk. I’d seen several while on the bus the last couple of days so was on alert. Just as well. […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Day 48 – Selçuk Part 3

13 September 2011 I had a quick wander around Selçuk this morning prior to breakfast, repacking and loading the Family Truckster. This is a nice town with remains of a Roman Aqueduct, Basilica of St John and hilltop fort/castle all within a short walking distance of the Wallabies Hotel. Unfortunately I’d explored less of this […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Day 47 – Pamukkale (Selçuk Part 2)

September 12, 2011 Day 47 of my Turkey motorcycle tour and another day off the Family Truckster while I let someone else do the driving again.  J and Al were on this tour to Pamukkale and Hierapolis with me today. Al would leave us at Pamukkale and take another bus overnight to Cappadocia. The bus ride […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Day 46 – Selçuk (Part 1)

11 September 2011 It was only 113 miles from Bodrum to Selçuk. A nice ride too and an early finish to the 45th day of my Turkey motorcycle tour. And no speeding fines, thankfully. I had originally intended to use Kuşadası as my base for exploring the area but decided at the turn off to give the coastal […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Day 45 – Datça to Bodrum

10 Septemeber, 2011 By road, this would have been 150 miles, but this morning the Family Truckster and I had a 150 miles off. We would let someone else do the work while we sat back and relaxed for a change on day 45 of my Turkey motorcycle tour. But first Datça. I arrived about […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Day 44 – The Road to Marmaris

9 September, 2011 I hate it when something unexpected comes up. Sometimes I can take it in my stride, almost like I was expecting it. Other times unexpected events, particularly those that don’t go my way, can take me to a dark place. Once there it can take hours to days to re-emerge from that […]

Turkey Motorcycle Tour Day 44 – Patara

September 9, 2011 Time to hit the road and continue my Turkey motorcycle tour. The journey out of Antalya was enjoyable. Good roads mostly following the coast and scenic. A smog like haze hung around for longer than I would have liked. Antalya and much of the Mediteranian coast is protected by mountain ranges making […]
