I don't recognice Europa at all fro your description.
Alps? The Appeninni? Karawanken? The Julian Alps? Massif Centrale? Black Forest?
Check out this thread
Perhaps my view is not incorrect but limited for the type of riding I was doing while living in Madrid, basically commuting and riding on the twisties during the weekends. The traffic was insane and I can't imagine riding through it with a huge bike.
Here in NYC, I never commute with the bike. I use it for long trips and dual sport rides
Is there any good dual sport rides in Europe?
Do you take the bike out off pavement often?
