Greg & Michelle's Euro Tour v.2 the 2012 edition

The Prologue

Since last year was so much fun (Euro Tour 2011) we decided it was time to go back. So Euro-Tour 2012, Greg & Michelle's Alps tour v.2 was born.

we have a rough plan:



We fly in to Zurich on September 11th, take the train to Aarau, and collect our rental bikes from Moto Mader. Another BMW F-800 R for Michelle (she loved it last time), and an F 800 GS for me. I would have taken an F 800 R as well, but they only have one full power model plus a 25 kw model... (that would have been no fun).

The plan is rough. Some French Alps this time.... famous "Cols" from watching Le Tour! Ideas from inmate Cooltours incorporated. Also some areas of northwest Italy, with ideas gathered from inmate Tagesk, and his excellent "90 curves in six minutes" along with ideas from the Rosetta stone of Tuscan riding "riding in Tuscany"

We would like to visit the area around Verona.. and have glass or two of Amarone. On the way to Verona, do we pay homage to the Ducati & Ferrari factories? Do we revisit Stelvio, or head back west instead to the area around Schilpario? All very special places from the last trip.

We had hoped last year to make it to Pisa, but it was too ambitious a plan. This year however, it is on the route!

Of course, it is just an idea at this time, and we are flexible based on weather, roads & which way the wind blows. So for now, the countdown is on..... Roll on September!
