Nice Day trip from Targu Mures

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
June 16, 2017 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0
Great day trip starting from Targu Mures (in diection of Reghin). Until Reghin it's boring and full of trafic, but then it opens and clears up. Road is good, but there are general hazards like oil spills, carriages on the road (and reckless drivers - looking at you drivers from Bucharest). After Toplita it becomes fantastic - incredible scenery, great road. Just after Borzont there's a restaurant (Basa restaurant) which serves great food in a rustic'n'authentic atmosphere.

Târgu Mureș - Sovata

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
June 16, 2017 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0
Between Miercurea Nirajului and Sarateni the tarmac is new (about 1-2 years old), very smooth but there's gravel on the side of the road (and the occasional oil spill) - be careful. Apart from that great view and great corners. The Restaurant at the end (Ciuperca Mica) serves great food!

7A : Obarsia - Brezoi

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
April 6, 2016 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0
This street cannot be compared to Transalpina or Tranfagarasan but it is still a nice road with a lovely landscape around. The quality of the street differs: from extraordinary good to gravel to bad. But still you’ll enjoy the trip. I did this in September 2015 with a street bike: Honda CB 1100 EX.

DN17C : Salva - Moisei

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
June 4, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0
Nice rural/mountain route and one of the main acces roads to Maramures region. The scenery is pleasent and near Moisei is spectacular(the spread villages all over the mountain and in the south you can see Pietrosul Rodnei Peak).
The road surface is various from good quality aspahlt to some unpleasant undulation in the highest part(but only a few kilometers. It's a good choice insted of DN18 Moisei-Iacobeni(it's horrible, full of potholes, and undulation - accessible only for adventure bikes).

One of the best routes in Romania. Unfortunately the road works are stopped for now and the aspahlt is full of pothholes and undulations. I'll post a new review after it's finished.

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
May 29, 2014 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0
A nice rural route through the northern end of Apuseni Mountains. Between Ciucea and Cizer is the most interesting part of the road with some nice corners to ride. The rest of it is a pleasent ride for views.

June 24, 2013 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0
pros: Lots of corners, new asphalt from 2012, open plateau on top of the mountain.
cons: Pretty narrow, does not connect to any other roads so you must return.

DN1R Huedin - Belis - Fantanele Lake

Transylvania ... > Romania > Europe
December 16, 2012 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0
The road climbs from Huedin to Apuseni Mountains through some villages(not interesting), the aspahlt quality is medium(a bit
rough for a sport bike) and the scenary and road start to be nice only after Calatele. There might be police at the exit from Huedin.

DJ107P: Gilau & Tarnita Lakes

Transylvania ... > Romania > Europe
January 24, 2012 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0
This is one of my favourite route in Romania. The quality of the road it's good for standard and enduro-touring bikes, but it's pour for speed bikes. Also, until late May some corners are full of sand.

Monumentul Eroilor Road

Transylvania ... > Romania > Europe
November 30, 2011 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0
Note : Google Map coverage does not show this route correctly, the attached films shows it correctly.
Mostly single track rising sharply through the wood with little or no run off and steep drops off the hillside this is actually quite a fun road to experience. bumpy and patchy surface makes it ideal for dualsport or supermotos. There is a monastery at the top to visit.

Gravel and light off road.
lots of nice turns, no one else about, nice forest scenery. Not really suitable for bikes without long travel suspension. Quiet and scenic area.

DN1 / E60 : Predeal - Timisu de Sus

Transylvania ... > Romania > Europe
November 25, 2011 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0
Racetrack wide but with many solid white lines, otherwise this road would deserve a higher rating but there can be a lot of traffic in both directions which makes passing tricky (although better going uphill from north to south as there are more sections of dual carriageway). There are many nice tight corners but it is not that easy to pass the slower vehicles so it is better to ride during a quiet period.

Transylvania ... > Romania > Europe
November 22, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0
Well surfaced, open, flat with great curves and very light traffic, through countryside and some small villages.
One of my favourite Romanian roads, great for the sportier rider.
Has long straight sections and because of the good visibility,
passing other vehicles is easy

DN76 / E79 : Carpinet - Varfurile

Transylvania ... > Romania > Europe
November 22, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5
Starts off with long straight sections with average surface and quite open surface quite rough on straights where it has not been renewed (there was evidence of fairly extensive renovation works that I saw). From about Carpinet south becomes a fun twisty, bumpy mountain section through foret sections. Surface is too rough to really be enjoyed on a stiffly sprung bike but on my GS it was excellent fun. There can the occasional logging truck and debris on the road but I enjoyed it a lot as there was not much traffic and the road has a very nice flow.

Starts off quite dull at the Gheorgheni end with long straight sections through villages. About half way along this road becomes a quiet sweeping forest mountain road which is really nice riding. Combinations on medium speed open corners in the calming forest, surface a bit patchy in places but mostly ok

DJ113 : Targu Seciesc - Bixad

Transylvania ... > Romania > Europe
November 11, 2011 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0
A very nice road that is let down by quite bad surface in places. Fine on a dualsport or adventure bike but not really recommended for anything sportier. The hard tarmac mixed with cobbles and potholes is worse for a stiffly sprung bike than gravel.
Otherwise beautiful environment heading up to the lake with nice corner combinations in forest surroundings.

DJ113A : Balvanyos to St. Anna Lake

Transylvania ... > Romania > Europe
November 11, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0
Turning off the DJ113 to the minor road up to the lake, this is a beautiful road in a scenic tourist area. Road surface on this section is much better than the DJ113, the road flows nicely and some very nice curves. The last section is a toll down to the lake itself. You can walk the last bit if you prefer not to pay, in the attached video I rode the complete route.
Beautiful surroundings take you up to the only volcanic lake in Europe where you can take your own mineral water, lake is very peaceful. You can park at the top of the hill and walk down about 1.5kms to the lake or pay a couple of Euros and drive down to within 100 metres of the lake. Road is very twisty and nice but also (unsurprisingly) popular with tourists so peak times may not be the best time to go.
