  • THE MAKING OF EDELWEISS BIKE TRAVEL

    THE MAKING OF EDELWEISS BIKE TRAVEL

    Since more than three decades we take our motorcycle friends from all continents on journeys around the world. Many motorcyclists wonder why a tour with Edelweiss, the world market leader, is so special. As "a picture says more than 1,000 words", we have decided to produce a movie about Edelweiss and its customers.

     

    As we always try to combine necessities and pleasure we did take this movie about motorcycle touring in the world's number one touring regions: the Alps and the Dolomites! For this reason, at the end of June, we did take a small selected group of Edelweiss customers on a ride that shows the rest of the world what Edelweiss Bike Travel is all about.

     

    Besides the tour guides, Christian, Marko and Markus, a professional film team with lots of experience did accompany this group. But no participant had to worry > we did not ask the group to perform daredevil stunt performances nor did we force them to suffer through boring movie shots - the focus was on each participants experience and pleasure!
