More of this please. It's not enough that you write numerous articles on bikes I desire, but will never afford. Now I am forced to read details of trips I dream of as well! It's nice to live vicariously as I sit in my cell-oops cubicle-at work. I just need to reimind myself that the "cell" time will someday allow both the bikes and trips. Nice article and well written. Thanks.

Makes me wish I'd owned a bike when I was stationed in Europe. I'm all jealous and stuff now!



Yeah! Where IS Danielle?

She's back in school. We still moto on weekends, though. So she's around. I'll send her your love. All of you.

Thanks for the great article! To say that I am a little jealous would

be a total understatement. Any chance of getting larger pictures of the trip?

Great story! I did the same thing several times when I was stationed in Germany. If you ever thought about doing it, just get up and go!

Default Friendly French People???

I liked this article. It was a great change in pace.

I just can't help thinking about the comments made concerning the friendliness of the French people. I mean, isn't it our duty - as Americans - to bash the French whenever possible?

I'm doing my part:

Why will France never get the Olympics? Their proposed slogan is: "Play Your Stupid Little Games And Leave Us Alone!"

Great article about one of the best parts of motorcycling.



Just pick a place on the map and go there, carving some curves along the way, and if you see a road (pavement optional) that looks good--ride it.

Really enjoyed the article, primarily as I am fortunate enough to live in the area you describe.



Living in Geneva, Switzerland, the Mt Blanc is a short 45 min sprint from my door. Riding home from work in the evenings, I sometimes find myself taking the "long" way home, and ride up over the Jura mountains. I can't imagine a better way to end a day.



All I could really add to your article is that this area is really a place that must be experienced on a bike. Some small points, you will find the quality of the roads to be better in Switzerland than both France and Italy. As an example, ride the road from Chamonix to Martigny, and as you pass the border, you go from a narrow and very damaged road to a wide and smooth one.



Anyway, it doesn't really matter wich route you choose, as they are all great. I discover a new one every weekend I go riding.



Regards,



Henrik
