I just thought that I would share a few photos from my most recent ride through the German-Austrian Alps. I compared my “chicken strips” to the example in the Keith Code - Tread Envy article (see Code Break HERE) and I think I didn’t do too bad. You have to consider that I rode on public mountain roads, on an unknown motorcycle, with a group of riders with widely varying abilities. It was great fun and I look forward to more tours in the future.
If you would like me to write a short article about the trip let me know. It was the last Edelweiss – “Alps and Lakes” motorcycle tour in 2013.
Prior to the trip I was considering a F800 GS as a replacement for my aging K model flying brick. Not any more. That would be the topic of my article; the why not.
On a prior Edelweiss motorcycle tour – High Alps Extreme, I had ridden a F800 ST. That motorcycle was very close to ideal, needing a few minor changes to suit me better. (BMW appears to have addressed my concerns with the new GT model of this bike).
