Re: Motorcycle Ride Out V:

Winter riding sucks here, too cold as others have said, and by the time I'm wrapped up warm enough, I can't move.
Country riding and those little gifts from the horses are just one of the pleasures we look forward to next season :-)
Will probably get the odd day out during winter when it's dry.

Re: Motorcycle Ride Out V:

Beating the cold is one thing - how about the tons of salt on the roads? Any bike will be ruined by it. Unless you wash your bike thoroughly after every outing.

Always god to talk bikes, sunny day plans and track time...

Cheers...

Mark.

Re: Motorcycle Ride Out V:

Welcome Mark, you've found at least one group of riders who you are welcome to join.
There will be drinks at some point, once we can get a date and time when we can all make, and decide on somewhere to go, as we are spread around somewhat.
You can also join us on FB if you use that as well, just look for Swiss Bikers group.

Robert, I always thought washing the bike was part of the fun of it :-)

Re: Motorcycle Ride Out V:

I'm going to try for another attempt at this...

Drink!

A day this coming week? Let's say Thursday 2 Dec. Who is up for a pint? Sorry, half litre.

Somewhere central in Zurich we can all get to easily. After work.

On a related note, a Swiss Bikers Christmas party might be fun...

Yeah, it is! But not with frozen fingers. Just got the battery out for warm winter storage. No fun fiddling with ice cold screwdrivers.

Re: Motorcycle Ride Out V:

Matt

Yes, we definately need to sort a date for a drinks get together. I am not available thursday, only tue and wed this week. I'll send a doodle list to the email list to see when everyone is available in the next two weeks. If you all are up for this thursday, go ahead without me, no point in spoiling it for all just for my crazy shifts :-)

RPF, agree, working in the cold is no fun.

Re: Motorcycle Ride Out V:

Hey there,

We moved over to facebook - International Motorbike Crew Switzerland. Ask the great chief (Chris) if you can join. There are ride outs nearly every weekend plus track days.
