Motorcycle ride No 12

Hi all

There is interest in a ride out on saturday 2nd. I'll be away in Austria for an airshow, but I'm sure you guys can organise another blindingly good ride.

I will be coming down hills on a MTB, with friends from the UK, so I won't be around ...

Yes - fit some knobbly tyres and they handle really well. Single track can be a little challenging

Ok, none of the usual crowd available and the work chapter of the executive motorcyclists fraternity are all on vacation.

Bonnie is due a service anyway so i'll knock this one on the head and gave a weekend in the garden.

Next availability for me is July 30th

I you want to do some Alps, we could meet midway at Andermatt, for example, then cruise around the central passes.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 12

Hi Robert, sounds good to me.

What time at Realp (or Hospental)?

Assuming I take the slow roads, I figure 1 1/2 hr to Hospental.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 12

That looks good.

If anyone from Basel region is coming they better take the motorway to Lucerne - Altorf - exit at Göschenen and climb to Andermatt - Hospental where we can meet them at Furkastrasse/Bahnhofstrasse in Realp where Tom will be waiting at 10.30.
