    We just arrived in Ulm, Germany, Steve. 400+ miles, uneventful journey. All well!

    @Vulpes: I am missing your new Tiger on your tour. Or is it the "last tour" with your other bike?;)

    @Markus the Tiger's too heavy to haul on the trailer with my mending ribs... :joy: my speed triple is staying, I use that for these kind of holidays and when I'm feeling naughty... :laughing:

    Day two, should have been an easy 250 miles… Well as luck would have it the Brenner Pass into Italy was completely congested, so as opposed to 5 hours it took us nearer 8… Oh well, at least we got there! And how! Fabio (the proprietor) had made it incredibly easy for us - drive straight into the garage, unload the bikes, park the trailer and take the car out again! Fantastic!

    According to our host the farmers will make hay this week. Allways a good sign, as they do know the weather.

    Woke up to a nice morning, so walked the dog and got ready for a nice ride. It being a Sunday, and the first nice day in weeks, we decided to avoid the high passes and the inevitable would-be-Marqueses. We opted for the Passo Lavazè, altitude 5.457 ft. Lovely ride, great weather.

    Looking good. Brilliant scenery, and experiencing it all on a bike, doesn't get much better than that. :):)
