Bacons-Trip to Southern-France / Italy

Starting here in Kuentrop at the 23.June 2011 late afternoon (somewhere in the middle of Germany)



Stage 1 (Kuentrop-Salbertrand(Ital(KM 1020) with a overnight stop in the Blackforest
Heading South for Swiss passing lake Léman and Montreux. There was no smoke on the water but the song is still rockin my mind. End of the Swissmotorway was Martigny - Hill up to the Grand Saint Bernard-Pass going down into the Aosta-Valley (Italy). Aosta-End-Valley- Pre-Saint Didier leads on to the next pass- Petit-Saint Bernard which I went down to Bourg Saint Maurice (France).Following the Val de Isere until Lancelebourg-Mont Cenis up to the Col de le Iseran (2770 Meter). Down to Italy again - direction Susa-Valley - Salbertrand (Campegio) was today´s end.

Blackforest-Overnight-Place - MickJogg -Bacon´s last host


Grand Saint Bernard - Lake at the top



Val de Isere



Col de Le Iseran (gusty wind 41 Fahrenheit)



Campegio in Salbertrand

Stage 5 Riding around the area of Guillestre (France)

We stayed our last days at the camping La Rochette in Guillestre



Col du Parpaillion it´s finaly a tunel wich leads straigt under the top of a mountaion to the other valley-side.
Inside the tunnel we found wet - muddy-icy conditions but finally we made it


A Terrot-Side-Car (old French Company)



Open window´s everywhere



Enfield is back



If you ride machines like that - you you need the special look



Downhill



Investigations



Enter the water section



Reaching the icy section - no way to use the sidestand



Very slippery!!!!





Hmm what to to - riding is not possible - we stick into the small ice-river and followed direction end of the tunnel.



Hmm...fresh warm air





And now down for a rest in Barcelonntte





Col de la Lombarde



Col de la Bonette









Take a swim? At Lac du Serre Poccon





Where is Martigo?



Sundowner at Col du Vars



Flying Pig´s



No - just a nap at the air-intake!



Last pics comming soon - way back home and Bacon´s new host "Brummbär"

Good to see the Porker getting about. I went through the Parpaillon tunnel the day after I handed over Bacon to AndyG.
