    @Sandi T;
    Thanks Sandi. Today it was unbelievable. No wind, warm temperatures, regardless of the altitude and an incredible landscape.

    Day 9:
    Today we left Cuneo at 0815 in the direction of Vicenza with a detour to Lake Garda. There we have successfully cooled down and enjoyed the view. After another hour of riding we arrived in Vincenza. From there it goes then tomorrow quite early in a turn over more than 600 kilometers to home. We will leave around 0600, as we can then successfully escape the bad weather that is forecast.
    To be continued.

    Our todays tour from Cuneo to Vincenza:

    Day 10: "The big final"

    We made it!
    Today we left Vincenza in Italy at 0600 for our last leg home. Up to the area of Udine it went quite well. Hardly past Udine, a torrential rain has caught us and unfortunately accompanied us through the whole Canal Valley across the state border to Carinthia in Austria. But after about 70 km it was finally over and we dried again on the remaining 250 km.
    After just under 6.5 hours of riding we then arrived home.

    Our tour was incredible. Beautiful landscapes, wonderful areas and great experiences have marked our last 10 days (9 of them on the bikes).

    A few facts about the tour:
    Countries visited/traveled: 4
    Kilometers traveled: 3.436 km
    Hours on the bikes: 43:58
    Tolls: €147.5
    Italy: €133.9
    France: €13.6
    Fuel costs (TIGER 1200): €328.3
    My wife's TIGER 900 was a little cheaper.
    Fuel prices: €1.95-2.32/liter
    Highest gas price seen on the tour: €2.51/liter (but we didn't fill up there!)

    Our TIGERs did very well and we enjoyed every kilometer with them! Next week they will get a 20.000 km and a 32.000 km service and also new tyres.

    I hope you enjoyed my daily reports and the photos.

    Our final day

    @Sandi T: Thanks. It has given me a lot of pleasure and I like it that after a "strenuous" day on the bike, you make yourself aware of the experiences and impressions once again when you write these postings.
