I have a friend coming over to stay for a few days next week and we're planing a ride out next Friday. We intend to do a full days riding (weather permitting) to try and fit in a couple of mountain passes and see a bit of Switzerland. I've looked at a couple of routes and think it would be about 350km so with stops for lunch etc. looking at a full day.

Anyone is more than welcome to join us, and bike, any ability, 2up. I ride a GS BMW and my friend is renting a Triumph Tiger so the pace is definitely not going to be too fast!

So if anyone fancies it (apologies for it being a week day) get in touch and we will arrange to meet up.

Cheers, Matt.

Re: Motorcycle ride out

Hello Matt,

I probably will not be able to make your ride on Friday, however I have attached a map (in 2 parts) of the best motorcycle passes in Switzerland (you should easily be able to do around 3 - 5 :I would suggest Sustenpass, Grimselpass and Furkapass ... stopping along the way, and depending on your timing you could add in Klausen and Pregelpass on your way back).

I ride a R1200S and try to go out every weekend (even winter), let me know if you plan any other rides.
