Riding your motorcycle on these amazing alpine roads in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy makes it easy for you to leave your daily business back home! During the past six days of the Alps Extreme tour, our group of 19 riders did nothing but take in the breathtaking landscape of the Alpen and the Dolomiten and manouver their bikes through roads that seemed to be just put there to ride a motorbike!
Have a look at the pictures below and you'll understand the many "wow's" and jodeling-like "yahoo's" that you could hear during the past days
Dave, Nancy and Bill on top of the Hahntenjoch
Oh, and Dave is one of the toughest fellow riders I've met so far! With the Alps Extreme he did his third Tour in a row!! (Italy, Spain, Alps)
At the end of the first riding day, the toughest guys made it all up to the glacier in the Kauner valley.
After a warm riding day, Nancy and Bill enjoy the fresh and cool air at the top of the glacier.
