You're pretty brave if you want to ride a bike on the BG roads mate.
One of my fondest memories of Bulgaria is of the two men on a motorbike near Velingrad one autumn day. The front one was driving the bike, the pillion riding passenger was holding on to the two scythes. These were arranged Boadica fashion, with the blades sweeping out on either side. The whole thing took up about three meters of road space. THAT is the way to ride a bike here!
Something like a nice KTM or Enduro style I would say is fine, high riding position and long visibility. I actually ride a YZ250 Supermoto here. But then, I have ridden in Johannesburg and India so have learnt to expect the unexpected. Here there is very little motorbike culture so car drivers are not atuned to bikes in the least and they do come at you from all angles. WIDE berths all the time. I certainly wouldn't ride a sports bike here.
I have taken a few wing mirrors off in the past in retaliation.
I'm looking forward to getting on my GS 650 Dakar once the weather is warmer and drier, but I still have to get it to Sofia first if I want the dealer stamp in the service book.
