Thumb European Ride Report Index

Welcome to the European Ride Report Index

To be included, a report must be both interesting to read, and sufficient detailed to be useful for others. Ordered by country. When needed, I'll add a
comment to clarify the title.

If you see a nice report, please send me a PM and I'll check it out.

Preference will, obviously, be given to Ride Report published here on ADVrider, but exceptions will probably be made.


Your humble servant,

[TaSK]

PS: Do not add messages to this thread, but instead send me a PM with a link to your RR.

Thumb Bump

Sorry to do this, but the ERRI had now fallen onto page 2. If it is to be useful at all, it need to be on the first page where it can be found by people stopping by.

Or, if you like: poor man's sticky.

Wouldn't that include a detailed location of each photo?

Sort of like this...


June 22, 2008 - Burgruine Griffen, Griffen, Austria.

Taken from the B70 in the town of Griffen. The Burg (castle) Griffen lies directly above the town of Griffen.

GPS:
N46° 42.160' E014° 43.664'


Or even more detail by including maps...



June 20, 2008 - near Gasen, Austria.

GPS:
N47° 22.055' E015° 33.957'

As it is no longer sticky, this thread will fall into oblivion.
Thus it will no longer be useful and updates serves no purpose.

Too bad, because I had the ride of my life again, even after sixteen straight years of touring there. My friends who joined me thought so as well...

I'm hoping the latter.

I love my beer and when I came across that field, I thought it might be hops.
