Re: Motorcycle ride No 22 - 03 Sept

If anyone is interested, there is an airshow down by Neuchatel, at Val-de-Travers, Motiers.

If no one wants to go riding, I'll pop down to this..

Noted. For me it has to be saturday, as am working sunday. Am waiting to see how many end up going, as there is also an airshow on at Motiers down by Neuchatel that I may go to. One of my other hobbies is photography, airshows in particular.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 22 - 03 Sept

Hello guys,

I was on holidays till yesterday and i would like to go for a ride now and meet all you guys (or some of you) for the first time.
I have been looking at your postings for some time now and always something was coming up and i couldn't join ! I ride a GSX-R 750, I am 37 years old and I am located close to Wil, SG (between Zurich & St. Gallen).
Hope to meet some of you this weekend. Preferably Saturday but Sunday will be fine too!

Regards
Yanni

Re: Motorcycle ride No 22 - 03 Sept

Hi guys

Good to see some more new faces wanting to come along, always welcome.

It looks so far that this weekend is going to be a bust. Seems most have something else arranged, which happens now and again.

Myself, I'm pretty much going to go to the airshow in Motiers as I'm a aircraft nut and am photo happy at these events.

Will see how many can make the following weekend. During the middle of summer, the numbers do drop slightly with holidays and what-not. But we still try for each weekend, just sometimes it doesn't always work out.
We've tried for 21 rides up until now, and made most of them, so our success rate is pretty good.

There are still two of you up for a ride, you could alwys get together this weekend. I can give you some ride ideas and tomtom files if you do.

Chris

Re: Motorcycle ride No 22 - 03 Sept

Thanks Chris!

Barry, are you up for it? We can go the two of us somewhere if you want.
I believe we both ride the same bike too!
We are also close to each other. You said you are between Zurich and Wintertur. I am just after Winterthur towards St. Gallen.
Please let me know if you are interested and maybe Chris can provide a route proposal.

Thank you both!
Yanni

Re: Motorcycle ride No 22 - 03 Sept

Hey Yanni,
Would love to head out, we may be limited by the weather but Saturday looks ok as far as I can see.

I am totally open for suggestions, I don't have a GPS, but I'm sure we can find our way to a pass somewhere. Chris if you have a couple of pass names we could look for that would be great.

Cheers, Barry

Re: Motorcycle ride No 22 - 03 Sept

Hi guys

From where you two are, I'd suggest our Appenzell Saentis run.
Meet either in Pfaffikon, or arrange another point to suit you both.

Route from Pfaffikon is THIS
If link works ok, then it will show route on google maps.
It includes a handy stop in Appenzell for lunch. Total route length is 200km from Pfaffikon. About 5 hours. And bloody good fun.

Hope this helps. Should be afew more of us the weekend after for ride 23.

Chris

Re: Motorcycle ride No 22 - 03 Sept

How was it ??
I missed the airshow, had trouble switching from nights to days, so when the alarm went off at 0700, turned over for another 5 mins, 5 hours later....

Re: Motorcycle ride No 22 - 03 Sept

It was very good Chris. We skipped out some parts of the route and we never reached Appenzeller. Even though we had GPS we managed to get even off road!!! It was a very experience with sport bikes!!! It enchanced the adventure, i can tell you that!!!
I am looking forward for the next ride but i don't know when this is gonna be. This coming weekend is booked from the wife, so no riding!
Enjoy ride 23!!!

Yanni

Glad you enjoyed it. We usually end up stopping at Schwagalp for lunch, very popular with bikers.

Glad you enjoyed it
