Sam Vesty scored 20 points as Bath ended their European away day drought with a 40-17 bonus point win over Bucharest Wolves in the Amlin Challenge Cup.
The 2008 winners had not won on the continent in European competition for almost two years, but they halted this miserable run in emphatic fashion with a five-try triumph at Arcul de Triumf.
Lock Will Spencer and hooker Ross Batty scored first-half tries as Bath opened up a commanding 23-7 advantage at the break.
The visitors remained on top in the second-half and Vesty, Ollie Devoto and Kane Palma-Newport all crossed to seal maximum points for Gary Gold's side.
Vesty also kicked three conversions and a trio of penalties to increase the winning margin.
Florin Surugiu and Christian Munteanu scored tries for Bucharest, but Bath's impressive display applied pressure on Pool 4 rivals Calvisano and Agen.
