speaking of astral road quality of Kalotina - Dragoman, just after you pass Kalotina and enter into that small canyon, there are two big curves that are widened by additional asphalt surface, in order to soften curves if really needed. That's a good idea, but there's constantly some sand and tiny stones on the edges with the road itself, as this additional asphalted surfaces aren't well leveled with a current road. It makes it extremely (!!) dangerous for us motorbike riders.

But anyway, this is my favorite part of the road until Sofia, especially after a short summer rain or in the mornings, when somehow there's always this temporary mist over nice forests there, combined with great road and nice curves makes it dream-like 10km of road.

you're absolutely right there. The road is very very good, looks great and feels great and the landscape is also really nice and wild.

Perfect road, perfect black asphalt and very mediterranian atmosphere in the Kresna gorge and before Sandanski. Very very beautiful!

I am wondering how the kilometer numbering will look like after the finishing of that section of Hemus motorway! Currently the km 0+000 sign stands on the beginning of A2 at Yana interchange at 13:06 on the video. If all the km signs will be changed?

The same situatuation is on the both motorway sections in Transylvania, Romania: Sibiu ring (A1) and Cluj-Campia Turzii (A3). They got their own km numbering starting from 0+000.
