From Europe to Asia through Turkey

Today we started the day by driving away together with the solar car of the Istanbul Technology University Solar Team. This was followed by a calm ride over the Bosphorus to enter Asia with the motorcycle. Although it was really hot outside (36*C!!!), this was a beautiful ride with clouds rolling over mountains, nice turns for the motorcyclist to enjoy and Turkish flags everywhere we looked.

Especially Amasya, the city where we sleep today was memorable. The city is bussing with activity, has very typical, fairytale-like buildings next to the river and caves build from the rocks towering over the city.

Last but not least: today we showed that our motorcycle can ride almost 300 km at highway speed (~110 km/h)!
