When: 25-27 July
Who: communist bike owners (Soviet, Eastern European brands, a Chinese CJ750 was present once also), sidecar machines (our kind or new hacks), classic/vintage motorcycles (more than 25 years since the type manufacture stop)
Where: Central/Eastern Europe- Romania, Cuca mountain lodge in the Carpathians, near old town Campulung Muscel, (http://www.romaniapi....ro/cabana-cuca)
Google Earth coordinates 45o 28' 30.10"N , 25o 2' 47.19" E , or GPS Lat.:45.4750839867; Long.:25.046115614528
it is reachable via an 18km good asphalt road and 4 kms moutain earth trail.
Cuca is basically an old school mountain lodge that is there for no real profit, to support mountain goers in the old Alpine style, wood heating, army barracks interior,2 outside toilets, a pipe drawing water from the river,only hot water in the kitchen and some electricity from a solar panel, then there's guitars and the sort of people that like to sit back.
There is the option to camp by the lodge courtyard, by a clear river at 1200m altitude.
Travelers needing better lodging will be happy at Voina Cabin which is 4km downstream and equipped with most modern facilities, still retaining some old school mountain charm, but it will also house all sorts of tourists - no .
So: Any RIMC member seeking to travel to Romania either living in a neighboring state (like Charlie23) or just passing by on a Ural/Dnepr adventure is more than welcome to join our gang which I estimate to reach around 50 such bikes.
We've got some nice wild mountains, some old stuff to visit in the town and a new to open ARO/IMS museum - the defunct 4x4 jeep cars that beat the Land Rover and Defender in the 60'ties.
Most of us know good English, you'll feel OK, If interested please contact me with a private message and I can arrange lodging and directions.
A look into past editions of this rallye one can find on Charlie23's site goodkarmaproductions.com under rides&rallyes, one was like this http://www.fleshandr...ff7dec4ddb8b4f6
