i think 10 days for the western balkan trails is a little bit too ambitious? :P but i can't tell, since i haven't been riding these tracks yet. clearly depends on what parts you are going to ride, where you are starting and where is your personal finish line. :handgestures-thumbup: we are starting in the last days of may and the ferry back to triest leaves on the 10th of june from durres :)

It is doable for sure :) we are planning two weeks for eventual extra trails, cool campsites and such things that you can do besides riding the tet :)

7 days. Buttttt, he is riding in rally mode from dawn till dusk. Also, track is 90% offroad. After few days of riding tarmac sections are a welcome relief.

My trip was complete adventure traveling mode. No racing at all, dont be mistaken. I stopped a lot, more than if I would be in a group and I made lots of video and pictures. My progress was good because I like to ride 12-14 hours a day, every day, for a week. It was possible to do it since I went on this trip in a time of year when days are the longest with almost 17 hours of daylight. Also I rode through these places many many times before so I did not stop this time for some classic siteseeing which I highly recommend to anyone cruising through balkans.

This report is GOLDEN. Thanks Roman, I'm planing to ride the Albanian TET this June. Now at least I know what to expect. One thing that scares me is the bears report.. Are they so common in Albania? Thanks again.
