Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

Next one I can actually make. Lets make this a good one, as I already have 10 available on Doodle.

Where shall we go, ideas for a large outing ?

Re: Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

Hi Tony

With 18 rides under our belts this year, can't remember where we've been, just that it's always been fun.

Not sure where we are going, maybe a collection of passes, or maybe Robert will have something suitable for a large group of us. Keep any on here for more details :-)

Re: Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

Doodle shows the following available for this run
Me, Lance McGrath(if in CH), Tom O'Hara, Robert, Bob Ellis, Ricardo Hernandez Sierra, Zoran Stojanovic, Matthew Baker, Emese Sugar, Will, Tony, Colin King.
Plus some from EF not on FB, possibly.
where shall we go, shall we be kind to Lance and do a combination of passes in CH, or leave him and go outside CH. Suggestions welcome.
Suggest a meeting time of 0900 wherever we decide. Weather should be good accord long forecast, let's make a day of it.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

As this would be the first time ill come along, id like to ask if you guys usually take the freeway to the region where you wanna ride or the highway?

I thought about that today so i took the freeway to winterthur and back to practice. I realize i dont like the freeway too much :). Id cruise at 100kmph but over 110 is quite unconfy on my bike.

Cheers
tony

Re: Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

There are some nice passes around Davos .... not that I will be there but we haven't gone over in that direction. Or you could to a Robert "Mile Muncher Special" by doing Stelvio and back

We are having a party that day (August 20th) at Stein am Rhein. You could join us there. See the social events calendar.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

Another idea:
Meet at roundabout Pfäffikon/Schwyz, proceed to Sattelegg - Ibergeregg - Schwyz - Altdorf - Klausen - Linthal - Mollis Airfield, those who like have a look at US cars & bikes, those who don't head for home. Three passes and some fun.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

THanks Robert, that sounds interesting. May just do that, passes and old cars, nice combination. Will see what the boys say. Will give you a call if we drop in :-)

Sounds good to me. Think I'm doing the Klausenpass Thu after work but you can never be on it too often in my view

Re: Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

OK, seems we have plan coming together.

Route as suggested to Mollis, lunch at Mollis, then return home. Can route from Mollis back north off autobahn and do some more scenic roads, letting people drop off for places like Thalwil etc, eventually picking up autobahn where A3 and A4 meet for the rest to split off and autobahn home to Basel, Wettingen and Buchs. Probably around 250 km all told.

If we go for a meet at the resturant for 0930, then that means I'm meeting Ric at Würenlos Movenpick services southbound at 0830, plus probably Will and Emese from Basel, to get us to Pfaffikon by 0930. Is everyone ok with this, or do you want it moved 30mins.

Matt, that would put us at your place 0900, or 0930 if we delay 30min.

Route HERE

Chris

Re: Motorcycle ride No 20 - 21 Aug

Tony, PM sent.

We usually cruise at 120 on Autobahn, but once we get to Pfaffikon resturant, then we are down to slower speeds. Don't worry, we always wait at junctions for any stragglers :-)

thanks for the nr. as stated in the PM, i'll take my time and meet you guys in pfäffikon SZ.

from then on i might be a little slower than you guys since that route is new to me

is there anything you guys usually bring along to such a ride (besides cash and a water bottle)?

We do prefer if the new guy brings along his good-looking wife, generally. Otherwise, no requirements.

Most of us bring motorcycles .

Anyhoo, don't worry about the speed - I'll have my daughter on the back so will also be taking it easy.
