Motorcycle rideouts

Hi,
I have just purchased a roadbike as the Swiss roads are so nice, so looking for people to meet and enjoy them with occasionally

Is there any sort of English riding community here?
I did a search and last post was in 2010

I do hope so!

If anyone fancies it, reply to this post

Hi there!
If you're fine "commuting" a little: Motorbike trips from BL

Cheers!

Re: Motorcycle rideouts

Cool!
Normally I tend to stay away from CH and hop in DE to drive in Black Forest roads. This weekend I'm not around but I'll surely make a post there next time I can drive a little

Re: Motorcycle rideouts

Hey,

nice thread. I'm also waiting for my new bike (2015 BMW R1200R). My first one in Switzerland

Really looking forward to get it, for some summer days and fellow riders

Re: Motorcycle rideouts

Ooh that's nice - another sporty rider to join our ranks. Are you a recent convert, or have you always been into sportbikes? You'll have loads of fun doing twisties - of which there are heaps.

Re: Motorcycle rideouts

Very nice mate, I would have gone for the new R1 but a bit out of budget,
So went for a 2011 blade for now

Let me know when u get it and we'll meet for a ride 👍

Well I did motocross mostly in the UK, but inbetween I've had 3 R1's, an 08 blade and a GSXR 600.

MX is kind of lacking here and as the roads are so good I thought why not!

Re: Motorcycle rideouts

I'm sure I'll partake in a Northern ride out since my Southern days are close to ending....

Re: Motorcycle rideouts

Hello, I am from Zurich (10mn from Enege) and I am also looking for riders to go motorbiking around on evenings or weekends... when I can arrange some free time... I am married with two kids and it is not that often.

I am riding a 1993 BMW K1100LT that I just purchased with little 20K km o'clock. I am a very prudent driver (family man... you know) and would love to meet and ride along with English speaking riders !

I will certainly keep an eye on that thread... I look forward meeting you !
