Balkans Burn

Found a sequence of three videos about 2 guys riding Soviet era combos around the Balkans. One of the bikes is a 1950s M72.
And the other is a 60s M61.
Interesting films in that they're not slick documentaries, but more like 'handmade' travel videos. Lots of nice scenery from a part of Europe that most people are not familiar with.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

One comment to make is that the narrator is an American, and although he lives in Bulgaria, he still talks about 'peoples' and 'tribes' in a way that makes us Europeans feel slightly uncomfortable.
