hey lee, i live about 75km west of vienna (as the crow flies). just north of the alps, and around here, there are plenty nice roads to ride around this time of the year. especially the area around the small town of "Mariazell" is by some people descriped as "sportsbike heaven". but you don´t have to be on a sportbike to enjoy it! if you´re interested, i can tell you a route from vienna to this area, all nice roads. cheers josef edit: unfortunatley, my bikes are currently being rebuilt (buell), waiting for service (ducati), unsuitable (husky) or for sale, otherwise i would have offered you one of mine to do the trip much cheaper.
