    If there’s a thread of the year competition, this is a definite contender.

    Brilliant trip and pictures. Thanks for sharing.

    The engine is not even cold yet mate! :joy:

    But I think a trip to Germany next year is on the cards.

    If not I'm contemplating a trip to the Austrian, Italian and Swiss Alps, possibly with a bit of Slovenia thrown in...

    That´s very nice of you to say mate, glad you enjoyed it.
    I find that as I travel alone, it gives me something to do in the evenings, as well as reliving the day, as it were.

    Glad you had a great trip, and for all the brilliant pictures and ride reports too.
    Put your feet up now and have a nice cold beer. y18.gif

    Cheers Steve, it's been a pleasure doing the reports. Glad you enjoyed it.
    Mrs V and I will have our first little ride-out this Sunday - that'll be fun!

    Let's hope Germany is a go next year!

    Brilliant trip man! Haven't been able to follow as closely as I would have liked as I'm currently on tour as well. Will give it a more thorough read through next week. Stunning pictures, will have to get some alp action in the future :cool:

    Would love to! And will at some point. Can't say when though, with all this covid shite, tests, certificates etc. But its definitely one for the (hopefully near) future ;)

    Great platters :heart_eyes: late to start your journey, but loving it @Vulpes.
    Being a foody I’d love to know what the bacon/mushroom/crepe entree was :eek:

    @Dartplayer you've got most of the ingredients, but the mushrooms were actually snails. Delicious!

    Some poor bugger’s roof will spring a leak in the next storm…

    @Vulpes thanks for the write up of your ride and photos.

    You should write a book called “Bike Tours of the Alps - on a Budget”. A big budget…

    Amazing hotels and restaurants!

    It would be nice to follow your route as it looks great.

    After all the great food, did you find the bike settled lower on the suspension towards the end of the trip?
