The road to Borsa (no. 18) is catastrophic. It is full with holes, so unless you really need to travel, choose another direction. For a distance of 25 km, you can go at the maximum of 20 km/hour. Also, with motorcycles you really need to choose another direction.

If there are Cities and Other destinations listed, they may not all be at usable status or there may not be a valid regional structure and a "Get in" section describing all of the typical ways to get here.
