Re: Motorcycle Ride No 18

Long forecast is always a bit suspect.

I will miss this one as we have fixed plans.

All other runs so far have been really great.

Thanks all

Re: Motorcycle Ride No 18

Hi guys,

Weather permitting, I'm keen to head out. open to options, I'm between Zurich & Winterthur.

One of the passes would be nice and a 9am start is fine for me. I've just got myself a black GSX-R 750, and need to freshen up my skills. Haven't riden for a few years.

Shame you won't be able to join Chris.
Cheers,
Barry

Ok Barry, watch this space for details of meeting point and time.

And if your surname is Sheen, you're barred :-)

Re: Motorcycle Ride No 18

Saturday is good Chris.

Where should we meet and at what time? I'll be coming from Airport direction and am happy with whatever time.

Cheers, Barry

P.S. You're safe... I ride more like Manilow or White than Sheen.

Re: Motorcycle Ride No 18

The guys still seem to be discussing when and where, but a suggestion has been put forward for BLack Forest. As soon as a decision is made, I'll inform on here and facebook.

I'm not going myself, damn work :-)

Re: Motorcycle Ride No 18

I've suggested the following, meet at Waldshut-tiergarten, just over the border in DE, big car park on right.

Meet Waldshut 1000-1030 and do ride 9, and ammend as you go. Short route
Waldshut - Gurtweil - Witznau - Berau - Brenden - Staufen - Seebrugg - Schluchsee - Titisee - St. Märgen - St. Peter - Eschbach - Stegen - Kirchzarten - Hofsgrund - Obermünstertal - Wieden - Utzefeld - Todtnau-Präg - Todtmoos - Wehrhalden - Giersbach - Hottingen - Hänner - Laufenburg - Albbruck - Waldshut - Kadelburg - Reckingen - Lienheim - Kaiserstuhl - Weiach - ZRH

Only around 200km, plenty of scope for ammending on the fly.

Chris

Re: Motorcycle Ride No 18

I don't think an organised ride is happened, as no responses here or FB .... and I have just woken up!
