Behind Motoride Transylvania guided motorcycle tours are Ferry and Mihaela, a young Romanian couple living in London, trying to juggle busy work schedules with a passion for riding. Motoride was born out of the constant home sickness we feel and the desire to offer tourists an amazing riding experience in our native land. It is the perfect combination of passion for riding, travelling, culture and promoting Transylvania.
Ferry has always had a passion for anything with an engine and doesn’t back off from any opportunity to get his hands dirty. Just don’t ask him to change a light bulb inside the house!
Always in search of adventure, after settling in London his passion for riding came back stronger than before. He bought a Yamaha Fz6 Fazer initially, and soon realised that he needed something more powerful. Ferry’s 31st birthday saw him buying a Suzuki GSX1250FA, the bike we absolutely loved for our long rides together. It coped perfectly with carrying luggage and a pillion. Fast forward a few years and he is now joyfully riding a BMW 1250 GS, his dream motorcycle.
We spend every summer holiday riding in Romania covering Transylvania from one side to the other and enjoying amazing sun bathed landscapes.
Mihaela is a Marketing professional working in digital operations and content management at a London advertising agency. She manages the operations, planning and marketing for Motoride Transylvania. She absolutely loves the pillion seat and the long rides with Ferry. She has not set her mind on riding her own bike yet, but as they say, never say never. Mihaela is also a photography enthusiast and loves carrying her camera wherever she goes. Just take a look at the photo gallery and you’ll see that the pillion seat is a great spot for action shots.
