together with Frend Harri and hes Daytona, perfect wetter for such a trip...

nice winding roads they are....

but we where not allone on the roads...

same level then the Glaciers
and the result on the counter:
482 Km, five ( 5 ) Alp passages, ( Susten, Grimsel, Nufenen, Lukmanier and Oberalp ) and the " Old Mill " was running perfectly !!

hope you Gents can enjoy your BSA as I can do mine....
beat :grin: :grin: :cool:

Beat,

Good to see that you're running smooth and I liked your photos.
That's a great set of curves and twistys!

Amazing beat!

I wonder how many of us would consider a 7am to 7pm ride a 'short' day?

Beat,
What a dash board, more information that in my car. Bet you never look at it with great roads like those to play on. :shock: :mrgreen:

Ian, you and I both did longer days 3 times a year (subject to not getting cut short by mobile bbq's!! ) and don't let those mega roads of Beat's make you forget what we have....cold, wet, muddy lanes in Devon on a dark January morning. :( ;-) ;-) Are you doing the Edinburgh this year ?

Hi Richard

Only a true LDT fan could write that!

Yep, I'm already entered for the Edinburgh. 1st October. Be even colder and wetter than it is now!

wrong I say, - the truth is, 1+1/2 eye is watching the Instruments, - and the left over 1/2 is looking ad the road. :oops:
( this makes me realising the curves always a bit late :mrgreen: :mrgreen: )
but how ever, it is lovely to get the thing around al this bends.... <216
