EBK15TG - Edelweiss Modultour is over :-(

Montag, 20. April 2015 | Thomas Ritt | News

The very first Edelweiss Tour Guide Training Tour is over. We all agree that it was a big success, the well trained rookies can't wait to go on their first tours. We tought them how to deal with problems that can arise on tour, most of which were fake situations, but not all of them...

After 6 days full of technical breakdowns, lost tour members, faulty GPS systems, and fake policemen everybody is about to head home or continue on the next quest, the EBT Office Staff & Senior Tour Guide Meeting. We have to break in the new Harleys, so stay tuned!

Good bye, Arrivederci, Auf Wiedersehen, Au Revoir, Tot Ziens and Haere Ra from Lago di Levico, Italy. See you soon!!!!

Beautiful view from our picnic place down to the valley!!


Today we were riding from Bozen to Levico, but on a different route than at day one. Beautiful Lago delle Piazze near Bedollo.

Rainer and Markus with tourguide Oliver at the Planetarium Südtirol in the Eggental.

Picnic was served at Truden again.

Pablo serving coffee after the delicious picnic.

The group was welcomed at the hotel with a boot beer served right next to Lago Levico.

Rainer telling Albert and Stephan that he almost got lost when riding alone but luckily found the way to the hotel with the help of Björn. Well done!


Under a clear blue sky and an already rising temperature the group took off from our hotel in Levico al Terme in South Tirol. This time under the lead of tourguides Björn and Pablo. The morning tourguide Björn took us to Castel Toblino, which was built in the 12th century and beautifully situated at a peninsula.

After the coffee stop, we went on to Lago Molveno, which again turns out to be a hidden treasure. Of course the tourguides had to face several "incidents" which were dealt very well by both leaders.

The picnic , which was this time prepared by Ted and someone from Downing Street 10, who insisted to stay incognito on this tour.

The afternoon ride was very exciting , also due to the challenging "incidents". After this , the group headed for Bolzano again for a nice dinner and the evening program

First Riding day


7 a.m. - breakfast - tiny little eyes and crinkled faces. Yesterday was really an exhausting day and today seems to be at least that hard. While most of the new (and experienced) TG's were listening to Ted's daily briefing, Claudia & Manu collected all the luggage in the lobby to carry it to the van. After the pre-riders and the group left the hotel in Bolzano the picnic-crew rushed to the next supermarket.

shopping-queen Claudia and sherpa Manuel


Heading out from Bolzano with a clear blue sky, the hole group was eager to hit the hairpins and the mountain curves. After having a numerous amount of curves and nice roads we found the hidden treasure of a medieval little chappel where we also had a coffee-break and a stunning mountain-view


Our hidden treasure "St.Helena"

While the boys were burning fuel on Italian roads the picnic crew exhausted thereselfes with preparing a legendary lunch right in the middle of nowhere.

the most critical (vegetarian) picnic-jury of the world

the hungry herd


One by one the whole crew arrived in our hotel in Levico. After every "costumer" was instructed (when, what, where) we had a little break before Björn and Pablo performed an entertaining welcome briefing. The de-briefing took place while we had dinner. After the dessert all the people gathered in the lobby for a chill-out, some together - some digital...

Stephan's combining "work" with pleasure

the end of the day

Welcome, Bienvenuti, Willkommen, Bienvenue, Velkom and Kia Ora from South Tyrol! Seven new and semi-new tour guides from a variety of countries embarked on a one-week training tour to prepare them for the hard life out on the road. Follow this blog and see what they're doing!

Instructors Tom (left) and Markus (right) with the Van&Trailer Class of '15: Manuel, Claudia, Oliver and Martin.

Loading bikes on a 11 meter flatbed trailer is not as easy as it looks...

Unloading is easier, but Claudia is still nervous. No wonder, it's a 20,000 Euro bike...

Positioning the ramps is essential!

Oliver and Manuel, dutifully rolling up the tie-downs. Unrolled tie-downs make Workshop-Jens very grumpy, and who would want that???

Spectacular South Tyrolean scenery

Meanwhile, the Guiding&Scouting Group was practising the bike handover procedure in Bolzano

Oliver and Björn doing paperwork

Stephan, Ted and Björn. The beer in the background is actually not a beer, right, Stephan???

Group picture...

Poor Ted had to give the welcome briefing. The group gave him a hard time and had fun doing it.

Die beschriebene Tour hört sich echt super an! Südtirol eignet sich auch einfach perfekt für eine Motorradtour. Ich bin bisher häufig in der Nähe von Bozen unterwegs gewesen. Das Motorradhotel Eggental war immer ein guter Anlaufpunkt.

Back in the office again, after a great and informative training week. Again thanks to Markus, Albert and Stephan for the perfect preparation and all the planned and faked situations, which you devised.

The impressions going to settle now, brain is in reprocessing modus.
Und lieber Rainer, für unsere österreichische Firma und unsere deutschsprachigen Kunden mit ihren nicht immer ganz einfachen Multistrade:
Die Eindrücke sickern langsam, das Hirn ist im Verarbeitungsmodus.
Geniesst Eure gemeinsamen Tage!

Looks and reads like it was a very good time!!..... break in the new Harleys? You know, I know a guy that is going to be in Europe very soon... he can help you with that.

Ah mais c'est quoi là-bas? Un Alberto en Multistrada-euh...
Hello everyone! Now that looks like some serious, proper training! And thanks a lot for the pictures of all those familiar wonderful places: rainy grey Belgium feels only more dull now...
Few things though:
- that vegetarian really looks scary! Must have been living on horseradish alone for weeks... Try and feed him some Fleisch, see what happens
- and if you think that picturestop from Alberto is strange, wait until you've seen him do a smelfie...
Take care all, ride safe, and looking forward to being on the road with you guys!

Awesome blog writting from the guys, but, as with every adventure, there are good times and better times, but also hard and stressful moments... Certainly not riding behind!!! XD

Hi guys
I got the feeling you will be perfectly prepared, maybe even better than the "old" ones.
And yes - rolling up the tie-downs properly is very important
Can't wait to be on tour with one of you, seems like it could be relaxed so well trained you all will be after this week.
Maybe we will meet on saturday!
Have fun
