Long time, no see

Some good news to share, we bought a new testing location at the edge of Retezat Mountains ( 2500 alt. the highest peak ), a place with many lakes, glacier lakes, and mountain streams.

The place is still in changes, but we shall have there a small fleet of S1waterbikes for fishing, testing, etc.

The property is 1600 sqm, with a nice house from 1920, 3 rooms, a huge wooden barn; at the edge of Clopotiva village. A place to fish, rest and enjoy life.

The first S1 is in place! ( image from Gura Apei lake, the Ses river entrance )
