In Bursa I got hosted by a great Kurdish fellow that goes by the name of Ibrahim and respond to; iiii! He was also planning to go for a motorcycletrip, so we decided to ride the coastline together.
While waiting for our shared departure, I decided to take the bike out for an evening ride. Then I saw a little dirt road that I just had to take. At some point it got a bit too dark to see the road and my wheel got caught in a ditch. Perry tumbled down and decided to lay down on the ground, where I could only laugh and enjoy the beautiful sunset at the horizon. After a few minutes of enjoying the sight I slowly dragged the front wheel out of the ditch, pushed Perry in his usual vertical position and rode of again.
Packing up the bikes
Around the evening we found a nice campsite near Erdek. There I also learned that my bike does not like sandy beaches alot and tend to dig itself in
After setting up our tents we decided to take a nice dip in the water while enjoying the beautiful sunset. It feels so great to take a dive into the fresh salty water after a long day of riding!
Ofcourse at the campsite we easily made more friends. I love the open and hospitality nature of the Turksih people.
On our second drivingday we drove towards Assos.

Dragging our bodies towards the sea early in the morning to witness the sunrise.
It was such a serene and relaxing sight to behold
A quick shot from outside of Troy. From the outside the area looked more like an amusementpark and the entry was actually priced as such. Hence we decided to take a quick snapshot and ride of toward Canakkale

Riding towards the sun!
Dont worry, we also have our rainy riding days.
I saw this muddy road and thought of giving it a shot.
The result of the road was my tires completly covered with a thick layer of the slimmy mud, destroying every piece traction
