Samstag, 22. September 2018 | James Ashton / Jens Ruprecht | Europa

Sadly our fantastic tour has come to an end. But we are left with great memories of incredible riding shared with some wonderful new friends. Thank you to all for such a magnificent week on the road!

Day 6 - Ratsberg to Mieming

One last incredible day of riding took us over the Erbe Pass and then onto the Jaufen Pass followed by the dizzying Timmelsjoch. A short visit to the world's highest motorcycle museum and then onto Mieming to celebrate a great week on the road!
