Re: Motorcycle rides out No 5 (24 Apr)

We have a wide mixture of bikes in the group, KTM 690, KTM Duke, my Fireblade or Pan European, Guzzi V7, Triumph Bonneville and Thunderbird, BMW GS by the bucketload, Kawa KLR and a couple HDs that I can recall. Although with those apehanger bars, it must be fun on tight twisty roads :-)

Re: Motorcycle rides out No 5 (24 Apr)

They all look good. Really like tour 19, but are we ready for 400km :-) That one also takes in alot of Bobs route.
How numb do you want to get :-)

You got it ! Some people find this apehanger not comfortable but it suits me perfectly well. I really like it.

It's great you guys organize such rides. I'm a bit far from where you are but if sometime you come to Fribourg area, let me know !

Distance is not a problem, we have people coming from far and wide. Just last weekend, David rode 2.5 hours just to get to the meeting point, rode with us, then went home, another 2 odd hours :-) We are spaced out, mostly in Zurich area, but some in Bern, Brienz, Neuchatel.
