Re: Motorcycle ride sunday 10th Jun

Can you tell me more about the group you usually ride with? Lots of people? Aggressive or take it easy? We're kinda slow and steady riders and wouldn't want to hold the group up. We're not on Facebook...

Re: Motorcycle ride sunday 10th Jun

It's mostly old men (from the perspective of this 33 year old, anyway) so no worries...

Kidding aside, we take it pretty easy for the most part. When we get to a good bit of twisties, a couple of people usually go ahead more aggressively while a couple of people hang back and enjoy the scenery. The first group waits for the second before the next street change, but there's not usually more than a minute or two difference - nobody in the group is trying to pretend its a track day or anything, and the most common reason for the delay is simply that people in back didn't manage to pass some cages that the people in front did.

And sometimes people bring pillions, too, so they take it easier than they otherwise might. Come along, you'll be fine and we'd love to have you along.

Re: Motorcycle ride sunday 10th Jun

Yes, agree with Junior above me. We are not out to race, we do enjoy the scenery. As Lance mentions, on the twisty bits, the group can string out as people do the speed they are happy with, then bunch back together at the next junction. We try our best not to lose anyone on the way. We have riders of all abilities, some just starting out, some riding for longer than Junior has been around We do it to enjoy the riding, and the company of like minded people, so feel free to come along and see what you think. Try it once and I'm sure you'll stay

The group has 64 members, but the most we have ever had is 17 bikes out at once. Usually it's between 4 and 10. It depends where we ride, as people come from all over.

Re: Motorcycle ride sunday 10th Jun

ok all

Sunday is sorted, so long as weather plays nice.

Meet at Waldshut in Germany, just over the border in car park on right.
http://goo.gl/maps/hsfY
Be there 1000 and we are riding up to Tittersee for lunch, then continue on anti-clockwise to come full circle back to Waldshut. We have to route back after lunch depending on weather. Tomtom itn files are on fb.

Re: Motorcycle ride sunday 10th Jun

Thanks for the info (and the PM) and for organizing, you guys seem very friendly and welcoming which I really appreciate. We are hoping to get out with you guys one of these times, though the weather is looking rather foul. Instead we're heading via moto to watch the criterium dauphine (cycling) in eastern france tomorrow. You know, since it will be sunny If anyone would like to meet up there, send a pm and we can try to organize.

OK, hope to see you out soon. I'm not a cycling fan myself, but you never know, some of the others maybe.

Re: Motorcycle ride sunday 10th Jun

No idea, I didn't have a pink letter on my bike. Think they said they would receive an official warning.

Sorry we lost you, took ages to come around, and then we couldn't find you.

It is not a fine. It is a friendly warning letter from the tourist police.

I got this ONCE (ok twice now) for parking at the same place. I drove there and parked there like 10 times in the last 10 years...

Today, we were too many bikes, so someone called to complain....2 weeks ago, nothing happened, and we actually parked nearer the restaurant.
