After spending the last 6 weeks working in Tunisia, I'm ready for a moto trip. I flew back to my home in Italy early this morning (Tuesday, 29 June) and will hit the road on Friday, 2 July. I have some work to do around Grafenwohr, Germany from 5-17 July but am making time to do some moto riding on the way to and from Grafenwohr. Will likely return home around 24 July. Most of Europe is open to tourism in some way. I have a residency permit, am vaccinated and will be traveling with a German translation of my Covid certificate. First up was taking is taking a look at the Mosko Moto Backcountry 35 bags I ordered (I feel like I won the lottery by being able to order them, lol). I decided to go back to soft bags instead of the OEM Hepco Becker hard bags on my Buell Uly XT. The HB bags are not completely waterproof and are a PITA to open/close due to an odd latch design. I'm also removing the OEM top rack to fit a MM BC 50L duffle. That should be plenty of room for my work stuff and the camping gear I'll use. My wife lugged the bags from the garage and remarked about how sturdy they felt...and heavy. Alpine weather can be fickle and I think the weather forecaster (guessers) default to a rainy scenario. We camp a lot and have good gear. Two different weather apps have different forecasts for next weekend in the area I'll be camping: https://camping-dachstein.at/ The stock Android weather app has a forecast that's not so dire as a few days ago; still it looks to be a fair amount of rain: I have better luck with the app "Ventusky". Looks like a slightly more moto favorable forecast: I'm in a bit of a tear around the house to get my business clothes washed and repacked, get my camping gear sorted and get the Uly back on the road from it's 6 week slumber (reinstall the battery, install MM racks, check TP, test ride, etc.). For POI's, I'm using an Open Street Map database that I've curated from this thread (map link in first post): https://advrider.com/f/threads/europe-roads-and-routes-off-the-beaten-path.1441071/ For navigation, I'm using a Kyocera Duraforce Pro 2 and a Tight Squeeze mount...should be plenty up to the task. It's going to be a great trip!
