Europe 2012 Maritime Alps ans Vosges

Well another adventure in the books. Two+ weeks playing in the Maritime Alps, the Vosges, with a little of the Black forest thrown in for good Measure. This year we were back on a tour with Beach’s Motorcycle Adventures http://www.beachs-mca.com/ , on their Alpine West tour.


We arrived in Zurich a couple days early, and spent some time wandering around town, We were going to get some early riding in, but persistent rain would have taken some of the fun out of the corners, so we laid low, and spent some time wandering around the old town.

We stayed in the old town, so lots of shops and variety of restaurants to keep us occupied.


View from our room.









Saturday Night on the square





Weekends saw a lot of partying, and as almost no hotels have AC, windows stay open, so earplugs were handy for a good night’s sleep.

Altstadt (Old Town) Zurich, like many of the European Old town is just amazing, building that were built before Columbus sailed to America! And churches with Majestic clock towers everywhere.

















A 2 wheel culture for sure, it is great because most drivers started on 2 wheels so they have a respect for them, that you don’t get in North America.
