Hello Bikers around the world,
Our "BEST OF EUROPE" Tour is on the road. We met last thursday in Munich, got our great motorcycles - and left to the North - Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Later on we continued through Heidelberg and yesterday we drove through the beautiful Black Forest before ending up in the Alsace region/France.
Here some impressions:
Eichstätt - great Stop for lunch...
Let´s go to Rothenburg...
BMW R 1200 GS - always a good choice!
Bavarian Biker girl on Honda 125 ccm - not too bad...
Rothenburg ob der Tauber - great medieval town - have a look:
and a little closer...
And after dinner - a walk with the original "Nightwatchman" - great guy!
From Rothenburg we continued further west, a first stop at Schöntal monastery, then a fabulous Picnic made by Harald at the romantic Jagst river. Great riding in this area - the Odenwald/Neckar region is perfect on a bike!
Stop at Castle "Langenburg"
Visiting Schöntal Monastery

and outside also... a lot of weddings take place here.

In the afternoon we had a great ride through the Black forest - it was so beatiful, that we had no time to take any pictures...turn after turn...
Finally we made it into France, here having a nice cold beer in front of our hotel in the Alsace region.
Okay, 2 nights in France - let´s go for a ride!
The roads in the Alsace region are fantastic - and the best - nearly no traffic... just great, have a look:
