Alps Adventure part one
« on: August 15, 2015, 03:14:53 PM »
Still high from our recent trip through the Alps. It was certainly a trip of a lifetime. The roads and scenery are nothing that compares to anything you can experience State side. We spent 10 sunshine filled days on a rented Beemer traveling the passes of Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
We have lots of pictures and thought we'll show them sometime this winter at a little get together. Here's a teaser preview.
First pic shows us on top of the famous Stelvio Pass with its 142 switchbacks! We wore our "Brenna" shirts as we call them to honor and think
about her.
Also on top of Stelvio we ran into Rob and Gretchen Beach from Beach's Motorcycle Adventure while buying a brat. They are first class guys and
Rob sent us on a couple wonderful out of the way passes with almost no fraffic on the way to Lake Garda.

One of Brenna's "dream rides" were Stelvio.
Thanks you two! Really awesome.
Who are the grateful dead? And why do they keep following me?

Awesome! We can certainly plan a winter gathering that you can show off your pics, just say the word :)
79' Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special "The Daytona"
74' Yamaha RD350 "The Little Hot Rod"...currently under the knife.
02' Aprilia Capo Nord "The Mighty Ape"

Have a good and Godly day, for what lasting value is a good day if it is not also a Godly day?
