Re: Anyone into motorcycle riding?

[quote=Michael_B;80218]Hi All,

For many years I've been a keen motorcyclist (currently a KTM Adventure 950), often up for a ride-out at weekends, either solo or with my better half as pillion. In the past few years we've done quite a few trips down to SoF/Spain on the bike. A couple of weeks ago, with a visiting English friend, we rode from Geneva to Nice (Route des Grandes Alpes) on the Saturday, and then back up from Cannes to home (Route Napoléone N85)... 1'100 kms in two days (including a dozen big cols on the way down) was a little tiring but great fun and it was sunny all the way bar the final hour and a bit. My friend's Multistrada even managed to keep up with the KTM on occasions .
Here we are at the top of the Col de la Bonnette (2802m) at around 1900 on the Saturday:

Wow what a picture. My husband was dying to get over to Switzerland to bike this summer. He was supposed to take a bunch of other bike riders with him, but couldn't find time. He has a BMW K 1200R
