Tail end Charlie finally posts on the blog. The tour was so good that we want to come back next year. Our group made the trip extra special. The tour guides allowed us to enjoy the riding, scenery, food and accommodations. They were the best GPS ever. Raymon and David gave advice, guidance and history that added to the experience. Thanks again to all.

I can only echo what Pam and Mel have said. An absolutely amazing tour, which ran like clockwork and provided the best motorcycling experience possible, bar none.
The incredible food and lavish accomodation was merely the icing on the cake.
Many, many thanks to David and Ramon

What a week...the Grossglockner Pass, the Stelvio, the Gavia, the Albula, the Bernina and many others. Switchbacks and sweepers. Unparalleled alpine vistas. Great food and friendship. The best seven days I've spent on two wheels!
