Re: Motorcycle ride No 21 - 27 Aug

Sat 27 works best for me, as, as I mentioned, I'm riding with my daughter on the 28th which presents some logistical problems due to time constraints.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 21 - 27 Aug

Accomodating Tom easily results in a 400+ km day-trip. In my younger days we made these trips:
ZHR - Locarno - Centovalli/Val Vigezzo - Domodossola - Simplonpass - Brig - Gletsch - Grimselpass - Meiringen - Brünig - Luzern - ZHR

ZHR - Vira - Alpe die Néggia - Luino - Ponte Tresa - Lugano - Bellinzona - San Bernardino (NOT the tunnel!) - Splügen - Thusis - Chur - ZHR

Both trips include long stretches of motorway. However, enjoying Switzerland's southern charm has its price.

Alternatively a shorter trip with some fun right from the start:
ZHR - Uitikon-Waldegg - Stallikon - Buchenegg - Albis - Hausen - Sihlbrugg - motorway to Sarnen - Glaubenbergpass - Entlebuch - Wohlhusen - Willisau - Sursee -Beromünster - Mosen - Aesch - Schongau - opt. Bettwil (Egli Racing) - Muri - motorway to ZHR

On sunday the Honda 450 meeting has priority for me.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 21 - 27 Aug

Attatched are the tomtom and Garmin files for the route from Stallikon to Muri, including the Bettwil option.
I reckon we should do about 200km. Will find somewhere suitable for lunch.

See you all at 0930 in Stallikon saturday morning.

I did 420km yesterday: San Bernardino, Julier, Albula, Lukmanier, only Autobahn Bellinzona-Lostallo, Thusis-Raezuns, and Biasca-Bellinzona (to avoid town traffic).

Nice turnout for a good cause. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to give blood in CH :-)
