Re: Motorcycle ride No 29 - Oct 23rd

Weather permitting, how does Black Forest sound ?
Maybe a 10:00 meet time to allow things to warm up a little

Re: Motorcycle ride No 29 - Oct 23rd

Looking at something along these lines.

what about something like waldshut - bonndorf - blumberg and then back to ch via eglisau (i am guessing ~1.5h. or wadshut-tingen - schulsee - bonndorf - blumberg (probably 2h riding)

I'm thinking a little longer.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 29 - Oct 23rd

Hi all

Here is a link to a google map of sundays route, as proposed by Robert. Think I got all the points correct.

Length is 135km, ride time around 02:40, so for us at least 03:30 taking in breaks and coffee stops :-)

http://g.co/maps/j45yy

Meeting point, our petrol station just on the edge of Eglisau, Tamoil station.

Meeting time not quite decided yet, my suggestion would be somewhere between 1000 - 1100, let the weather warm up first.

Thoughts ?

Chris

Re: Motorcycle ride No 29 - Oct 23rd

I did some of this route last saturday, setting off from home at 2 pm. Gorgeous sunshine and empty roads.

The chap in the picture let it really fly, probably well over the speed limit depite the "tombstone" board on the far right.

Will do my best to take part.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 29 - Oct 23rd

Hi all

Meeting time 1100 at Tamoil, Eglisau. This should let the weather warm a bit first, and the early morning mist to disappear.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 29 - Oct 23rd

Just had a chat with our met office downstairs, and the layer of low cloud we should get tomorrow, will only be upto about 900m, so once we start climbing, we should come out into the blue sky :-)

Re: Motorcycle ride No 29 - Oct 23rd

Hi Chris, I am new to motorbiking but just passed manoevre test and will do second test in early new year. I am Basel based and would be interested in joining trips in 2012. Is it OK with L until I pass test and do I need to put winter tyres on bike? Cheers Brendan

With L plate you can only ride in CH, when its icy or snow on the ground pack the bike away, otherwise you are asking for trouble.

As for joining with the L, no problem. In fact, the only times I've ridden with these guys, I had an L on the back.

Re: Motorcycle ride No 29 - Oct 23rd

Hi

As Mr Corbets has siad, joining us with the L plate is not a problem, just be aware that sometimes we will do rides outside CH, which means that you'd have to miss those ones. Best get that test passed :-)

Winter tyres on the bike, no. Even those of us who keep the bikes on the road all year round tend to reserve riding for the occasional nice day.

As you are Basel based, there are a couple of other members of the group based up there with you as well, so they may well give you a shout if they are just organising an evening ride etc.

We will be pretty quiet from now until probably sometime in March, although I will be riding if the weather plays nice between now and then.

We also try and organise other things to keep the group occupied over winter, so watch for those as well. Sometime after xmas I think we are trying to organise some indoor motorbiking :-) We also have xmas drinks organised on 14 Dec in Rapperswil, and you are welcome to come along and meet some of us.

Also, if you have the dreaded Facebook, we are also on there, look for EFswissbikers group and join us on there. Thats where we share most of the pictures, and event dates etc.

Regards Chris
