If your route took you a bit closer to Basel I might join you... Have you thought about a Jura run? maybe Doubs river and down towards Geneva?

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

We have been to the Jura this spring. Why didn't you join then?

... towards Geneva? This is 300 - 400 km just to get to the region and back, for us lads from Zürich region. And you're not even sure to join us, you only commit yourself to "I might"

I can think of a trip to the Ballons in the Vosges, meeting at the border of St. Louis. However, I doubt many find the time for a 400 km day trip next Saturday.

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

@Bexie - you're always welcome to join us no matter where we ride. Emese joined us on the last one, and she came from Basel.

@Robert, any suggestions for saturday. Shall we stay in Switzerland or venture out again.

I'll be away on course thursday and friday, so won't have access to EF until friday night.

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

What do others think?
Day-trip or afternoon? Distance?

Not done so far: Rheinfall-Schaffhausen region (afternoon); Appenzell

On my to do list 2011: Automuseum Fritz B. Busch/Donautal, 350 km, www.pfeffer.ch/buschmuseum.htm; Vosges/F, 400 km

Going south may not be a good idea with next week's long weekend. Traffic will be dense to and fro.

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

There are some nice roads in the Appenzell region. I'd like to be back by about 5ish Saturday so 350-400km may be pushing it but if that is what people want to do then I will go with the flow. I agree we should do those sometime

This is of course assuming my bike is done this week as currently expected...

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

Hi

I'm easy, as have the full weekend off. We have one of the others who is coming who is still on the L plate, so if we can keep it in CH then he can make it. Other than that, I'm up for a full day 0900 - 1700 and 300km :-)

Also agree that we should do those routes on your to-do list Robert, they sound like fun.

I assume that's me. ;-) Don't change the route just for me - I'm pretty sure I can come, but the girlfriend's got final say since I'm travelling all week.

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

Hi Lance

Actually, no, not you, but Will. He's same as you, riding on the L plate at present. He's also got the girlfriends permission already :-)
Plus we seem to alternate between in and outside CH, and last one was outside.

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

Chris, are you off on Monday as well?

Weather forecasts for Saturday are not promising. Monday seems to be far sunnier. I'd go for a lazy afternoon ride on Saturday (if it's dry) and something "real" on Monday.

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

Unfortunately I'm working 0600 - 1400 on monday. As far as weather goes for saturday, and sunday as a reserve day, I'm watching it. Have chatted to the met office downstairs from us, and the next front is due to go through here friday night, early sat morning, so maybe it will be okay. Will know better closer to the time.
But as I'm away thur and friday, I'll go with whatever the group decides and will check mails friday night to see what's happening.

Won't monday be even busier with all the holiday traffic.

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

Only input so far is a few maybe's, waiting to check if wives and girlfriends give them a pass for the day. And Will has his pass stamped from the girlfriend for saturday, if we go sunday, she will also come. But he is still on the L plate. Matt should have his bike fixed on wednesday, and intends to go get it thursday or friday, so all being well he'll be there saturday. The rest are pending.

What delights can you come up with for in CH on sat, with sunday as reserve day.

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

Well, we may have more passes from wives/girlfriends for a Saturday afternoon ride than for a day-trip. Shopping can still be done in the morning.

Afternoon: 13.30 at Tamoil Eglisau, Rheinfall, Züri-Unterland, SH, approx. 100-150 km

Day-trip: 10.00 at Wattswil train station, Appenzell/SG, 200+ km

Re: Motorbike ride out No 10 - 11th June

Meanwhile, I'm heading up to Voralberg on either Friday or Saturday (depending on weather) for a bike meet near Dornbirn, and will head home on Sunday.

As the weather should be nice on Sunday, I'll probably take a longer ride home, either through Appenzell/Schwyz, etc., or through Engiadina.

Anyone around on Sunday?
