Turkey – Amasra, 01 – 02 September 2018

Sinop to Amasra along the coast, D010 a route that I was told not to take hahaha and I can see why, in a car it would have been hell. Twisting and winding through the mountains and along the coast, rough and narrow, on an adventure bike it was fun, only 323 km and it took 5:50 hrs. Very little traffic upto Cide and then cars, trucks and even a few tour busses, not fun anymore, that was the last hour and a half. The closer I get to Istanbul the busier it gets. Anyway a great ride, reminiscent of the E65 along the Dalmatian coast in Croatia.

Amasra – its been around since BC, the Greeks and Romans were here, small seaside town, very quiet, this is the weekend so there are a few local tourists.
