Smile Possile Europe Meet ?

I will be in Austria (with my wife) on our ST4s in June and thought it might be an idea to meet a few other European correspondents to the site.

We will be staying at the Tramserhof Hotel in Landeck and can leave Friday
20th free or Saturday 21st for a late morning meet and possible ride (1-200 Mls ?)
Followed by a chat over an early meal.
(This would not be a balls-out thrash jus a pleasant ride through some stunning scenry - Route suggestions can be discussed if we get any responses ...Stelvio ?)

Anyway , if anyone wants to show an interest/make a commitment we can start to fine tune arrangements.

I go to Europe twice a year.
Mainly in the Czech Republic area, Austria, Germany.

But I need to head East and see what else the world offers.

And the UK may be coming soon.
I need to corrupt more people!

LOL

I can get to Landeck in a day if I take interesting roads (ten or so passes along the CH/I border), half a day on boring roads.

My prefered route would be 8-10 hours, depending on stops and road conditions.

Probably Ceneri, SanBernardino, Julier, Bernina, Forcola, Foscagno, Stelvio, Resia.

Alternatively, insert Albula and Fluela after Julier, followed by Fuorn and Umbrail instead of Bernina, Forcola, Foscagno.

Wasn't sure who this was aimed at but if me , yes we will be coming down from Ijmuiden through Germany (3 riding days including down to the ferry port in the UK) so am allowing a few rest days as overall it will be quite a bit of riding fully kitted and two-up but looking forward to a lighter bike for the Alpine roads.............thats why I just love the ST4s !
