David is it too hot, or is David hot

10. Riding Day - Livingo to Bolzano

The highlight of the should actually be the Stelvio Pass in the morning, but it should be something different first thing in the morning

Even a GS doesn't like diesel, and the taste in your mouth...  no snogging for Rod today

Our guests look so happy when they arrive on the Stelvio

Bruno's sausages so delicious


11. day Restday

although we have a rest day today , some can not get enough of the curves .  So get off your bike and play catch with the clouds.  who will win?

who eats so many apple strudel?

next stop, there was ice cream for everyone

after 200 km over Renon, Meran, Gampen Pass and Mendel Pass, a drop seemed to touch us.  another great day

12. Riding Day - Bozen to Kaprun

Today we have an absolute highlight - the Großglockner - but before that we want to enjoy a wonderful ride through the Dolomites.  The weather is much better than predicted - the loss of power much nicer

Wolfgang once again served us an excellent picnic.  not only looks mega, it was mega.  And that against the backdrop of the "Three Peaks"

it doesn't get any nicer than that

13. Riding Day - Kaprun to Mieming /Seefeld

Today is the last day of riding - and the mountain peaks got snow overnight - but that shouldn't stop us from having another great day.  We start comfortably and actually snowed on the GerolsPass - we really deserved the coffee stop to warm ourselves up.

A very special highlight surprised us in the Zillertal - the Almantrieb - right in the middle

the third cake for Karl today

Gord enjoys a huge portion of Kaiserschmarren
