    Hi all and FYYFF.
    after some years without writing here - selling my KTM 950 - and get a 1200 GSA - i decided to place the next rr now and here.

    The first trip with the Gummikuh took us to Sardinia an Corsica.

    [​IMG]

    Every tour we do starts with an "at home - pic" (belive me or check my other reports).

    [​IMG]

    First stop at famos Umbrail pass in Switzerland.

    [​IMG]

    The way down to Genova we passed Lago D'Iseo

    [​IMG]

    and reached Genova

    [​IMG]

    The rest of the day we spent around Genova and than entered the overnight ferry to Sardinia.


    The next morning we left the boat and started our tour around the beautyful island.
