Postby cbx4evr » Mon Dec 07, 2015 10:02 am



Thought I would pass this info along as I received it at a local level.

Dear Goldwing friends,
with this mail we want to give you the information, that we start with our Goldwing rental in spring 2016 .
We offer our Wings for experienced motorcycle drivers.

You can find our offer under http://www.wings-for-wingers.com/english/

It would be a great pleasure for us, if you spread out this homepage adress to all your Goldwing- and motorcycle friends

Best regards
Arno and Margit

Thanks! Me & the Mrs. are heading to Bavaria & Austria this summer. Going 4 days prior to hopping on a river cruise. I can't think of a better way to see the Alps!!!

Don't know anything about the rental company! But if you ever get the chance to go to Europe and rent a bike and ride, DO IT!

The wife and I had the opportunity back in 2004 and it was great. We were part of a tour that started in London, Ace Café, and on to France, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Italy. We rode a number of passes to include the famous Stelvio, but the real highlight was the small towns we visited and stayed in. We met some great people, ate some absolutely fantastic food, and rode some great roads. I think the highlight for me was the day and riding laps at Nuremburg Ring where some of greats have raced. I had watched tv clips of the races, movies that featured the track and even ridden in on video machines and never expected to do it for real.

We even ate lunch at a Mcdonalds one day to see what was different---not much. We stayed at one hotel that had its own trout fishery and you could have what you caught served for dinner. Most dinners were outside and in fact at that hotel we ate dinner with a gentleman named Franz who was born raised and lived all of his live in Germany except that period during WWII when he was interned at Auschwitz. He had some horrible memories.

If you can find a way to take such a trip do it, right now the euro and Dollar are looking pretty good so next summer might be a great time.
Our tour was put together by a group belonging to a website like this and a suggestion one year led to a trip the next year.

Believe me, Alps are the most beautifull ride which you can do in EU.
Here there are some usefull links for info. I am sure you are going to be busy overnight now :mrgreen: :

For hotel booking in EU, the most popular is www.booking.com site. Just hit the place and a lot of opportunities pop up, can be sorted by price, distance etc. A lot of photos and reviews is available as well. All working with credit cards. No cash needed.
Riding through the Alps is the best on end of June & July. Have to carefully check forecast (www.yr.no) because it is very often foggy and raining. But if you hit a nice sunny day...be ready for the drive of yr life !! You can find a lot of You Tube clips from Alps (hit : Stelvio, Alps, Grossglockner....), even with Goldwings. Also, there are a web cameras installed on the most of the popular passes, so you can see a part of yr next trip online as well.

Welcome to EU, wish you an unforgettable holiday & drive
