Motorbiking: 2012 Swiss Crazy Run

To all bikers;

I fell upon the following blog organizing a bike trip with 24 mountainpass, some 1400km and a time schedule of 30-36 hours to be held somewhere on a mid-june weekend in 2012 in Switzerland.
It seems to me it is for amateurs of big runs. I think it needs a good physical shape and quite some motorbiking experiences. It is, however, no competition, no race. There is no first, no last. It's just a fun run at a very steady pace, few stops, little sleep,...

Altough it is in principle open to everyone, the organizing committee admits a sectarian point of view in favour of HD's, big twins and choppers and would not admit japanese rockets, sportbikes or touring bikes, but I think everything is negotiable...

The website is in french only, but I'm sure some of the committee understand english, even if it was only for reading their HD manual . If translation is needed, I'm happy to offer some help. Have a look at http://www.swisscrazyrun.ch/

I just thought mentionning it. It's not for me: I humbly confess a lack of experience and probable physical shape and the possession of a non suitable 'flying brick' tourer. Personally, the experience would make sense spread out over 3 or 4 days at a more leisurely pace...

Nice day to all of you.

Re: Motorbiking: 2012 Swiss Crazy Run

Alas, while all of my bikes are big twins, they are all 'sport' bikes (even my Guzzi sidecar), so no chance for me!

Ok, wait, I do have a XV250, but that's perhaps not big enough (but it is a twin, and a cruiser).

Counts me out as well, only a big tourer and a sports bike. Guess we'll have to stick to the rides we organise ourselves on here and FB :-)

It isn't frankly my cup of tea neither...
Maybe I'll wave them off...
