That’s it folks, time to wash that damned Stella Alpina dust off the bike. A happy reminder of a great trip. Thanks for all your comments they inspire me to keep pluggin at the reports

Ride safe

I read your entire report in one sitting. I was fascinated and entertained all the way through. I haven't been tempted to leave my beloved States and go to Europe but those photos could make me change my mind.
We also have some elevation here in Colorado:

Thanks for that MrBob. I would love to see Pikes peak when the hillclimb is on. My wife goes to Denver for work conference once a year in the winter though. Might tag along sometime

It was raining when I rode down the Grimsel, this guy got better weather for his "unusual" mode of transport. A great clip

Great ride report Terry, some wonderful photo's too. I had a great time at the Stella, don't know if it was the roads, scenery, weather! or just the great company. Andy. (Buckles)
