A SCOOTER IN TURKEY
John, who writes the A SCOOTER IN TURKEY blog called in today, we are in the early planning stages of a bike trip to Syria together. John rode his Suzuki 125 scooter from Kas to Dalaman then on to Dalyan and koycegiz, then home again. A round trip of over 300km, on a 125 scooter that is no mean feat on these roads, Linda prepared lunch then we rode off to Dalyan.
The roads in our area were much quieter today, just how we like it.
We arrived in Dalyan where parking in the shade was at a premium today.
We wandered around Dalyan and then rode up to Muf’s bar again as we did yesterday, John asked how far away Koycegiz was from here, I told him it was 30 minutes along the old road or 20 minutes on the highway, John choose the old road, so off we rode to Koycegiz lake.
The old road, as the name suggests, has some particularly treacherous bends, very bumpy with large potholes lying in wait around tight blind bends, jaws wide open ready to devour the unwary, a difficult road on a scooter.
After lounging around we all wandered in to Koycegiz town to see if Ray was in his office at Pegasus Emlak, Ray rides bikes also, so we chatted about our trip and also asked him if he new where we could obtain a Carnet in Turkey, but he didn’t know either. After tea (Chai) at Ray’s we rode back to Dalaman, and John back to Kas.
