Winter Motorcycle Tour
Taking a break from the cold days.
It’s always warmer in the south
The winter temperatures that keep us away from our two-wheeled pets always last to long.
Scrolling our last year photos and polishing the chrome isn’t enough of a comfort for a real adventurer.
We just had to hit the road.
Motosomnia team decided to stop the winter drought, when it comes to driving ,and went to the Island of Vis.
Reason: visit our biker friends from motorcycle club MK Furija Vis ,regarding their winter motorcycle party and catching a couple of sunny days on a bike.
The south of Croatian coast is a perfect part of the country for cheating on winter.
If you are lucky with the weather forecast the roads tend to be dry and good to ride through the whole year.
Off we go!
The bikes were transported with a van to the city of Split ,where we boarded the ferry.
Our destination is 45 km away from the mainland.
The two and a half hour ferry ride provides you with a stunning view of the local archipelago and the Adriatic coast.
With that site in front of your eyes you slowly begin to forget about the real world and all its downsides.
The feeling of the temperature rising as you go farther from the land has a healing impact on the mind and body of a poor frozen biker.
An island with a history
The island of Vis is a real Adriatic diamond.The unique phenomena of the Blue Cave on the island of Biševo which is visited every year by thousands of tourists and the legacy of old forgotten regime with the army bases for submarines are just a part of the island’s incredible story. Beautiful weather and the hospitality of our hosts were more than enough for us to be satisfied with our decision. Driving through the island’s olive groves, vineyards, fields of lemon and mandarin, with a view from the serpentine road to Komiža , accompanied by scents of local cuisine coming from taverns. These are just some of the things that get you thinking about never leaving this place.
We were followed by a pleasant temperature of 15 ° C (excellent for February) and dry roads, which we used to visit the southernmost city of Croatia, Komiža and the top of the island of Vis Hum, with 587m above sea level.The view from the top of the island is just breathtaking.
When we decided to take a break from driving, we enjoyed the gastronomic specialties specific to the island of Vis, such as salty Vis cake ( Viška pogaća ) and grilled fresh fish.
Unanimous decision of our small but merry group reads: “This will happen again!”
Thanks and greetings to our brothers and sisters from MK Furija Vis.
