2.nd riding day from Kals to Klobenstein

What a day! Riding over 5 passes and passing the border to Italy.


Imaging going up a mountain with practicly no straight road on it. Only curves, switchbacks and swings. Welcome to the Dolomites. As we step over to Italy, the first road we encounter is so small, some of us were thinking it´s not even meant for traffic. After the first coffee break in Italy, we went on to see two more passes, before we entered our lunch place at Passo Pordoi. The lunch was already typical italian with some Pasta and Tiramisu. We also stopped by the Harley-Davidson Dealer in Bozen and enjoyed the last beautiful ride up to Klobenstein. Swinging through the wine yards with a view that is priceless.
