Thanks for the praise Martin, yes it was a good trip made all the better by great company.
We shot from Calais to Cochem on the first day mainly by motorway with a few twistys at the end around Cochem area.
Stayed at a very nice place called Weinhaus Grafen that had a secure lockup for the bikes which was great.
A total of 320 miles.
Day 2 we headed for Pension Williams in the Black Forest witch started with an unexpected detour because of road works,:w00t: we found some great twistys and scenery that I made note of so that was handy.
This is where Martin had his misfortune and dropped his bike,:w00t::w00t::w00t: for first and last part of this journey was fantastic but the middle bit needs looking at.:unsure:
A total of 220 miles.
Day 3 was a biggy as day trips go, Vorarlberg, Austria.:w00t: The route was planned to get onto the A8 and pick up the 31 down the German side of lake Konstanz and into the Vorarlberg.
This turned out to be the best route because I had been down the Swiss side and it’s town after town with 25 mph speed limits.
Now the reason we did this trip was to try a bikers gold award road. This is my personal opinion of that road.
I Would never give this road a gold award for 2 reasons, the first is it costs 10.50€:w00t: because it’s a toll, second is the lead up to it is passing through several towns with speed limits of 31mph,:w00t: now it could have been just the fact that I knew it was going to be a long day and wanted to keep the ride progressing, I don’t know.
Apart from that it was a great road and some spectacular scenery.
A total of 455 miles.:w00t::w00t::w00t:
Day 4, a great run home.:Whistling:
A total of 450 miles:w00t:
So 4 days and 1445 miles later it turned out to be a good one.:):):)
