    Albania

    This suggested 1,730 km route, lifted from the pages of Tourenfahrer-Motorrad magazine might be of interest:

    Apologies for being dim, but is it possible to download this route as a Mapsource file..?

    There is a link on the website to downloads. Scroll down a bit. They usually cost a couple of euro. I have never done it. Let us know how well it works, please.

    Well, I paid my £1.85, and downloaded the GPX file, which opens as a single Track in Mapsource.

    The system works!

    Misses the incredible coast road south hugging the cliffs to Saranda and Butrint National Park - a must see! and excellent sea food in Sarande - but if exotic food is too much for biker mates , you can always pop over to Corfu for a full english and fisn n chips !

    Albania

    As with any suggested route, there is always something missed out.

    Sarande to Vlore is a stunning ride on the Albanian Riviera..a definite do. There's a really friendly and chilled little campsite down on the beach beside Himare ( Camping Kranea ) for those who don't always use hotels

    Inland Albania is also stunning but in different ways, from barren to incredible mountain routes and there's the ever present cultural craziness especially when you stay off the main routes and travel the dirt tracks.

    Around Lake Ohrid and also Macedonia..lovely.

    The people are very hard faced but friendly....wave and smile on your way past and see their expressions change

    I'm going back later this year after Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey. Good post, thanks.
