It was the beginning of June 2016 when I sat on a motorcycle for the first time. Back then I didn't even know exactly how the gearshift worked. I was faced with the difficult decision of whether to start playing golf or start motorcycling. Today I am convinced that I made the right decision. It's my third season and I don't regret a single second.

The region where I can usually be found when I finish my rounds at the end of the day is the Rhine Valley around St. Gallen. For a motorcyclist it is the perfect area to live in. After only a few kilometres, the first bends are driven and the road starts to climb. No matter if you are in Switzerland or on the other side of the Rhine, in Vorarlberg.

After 2.8 km you will leave Canton St. Gallen for Canton Appenzell Innerroden. After two bends there is already the next canton: Appenzell Ausserroden.

My route leads me further towards Oberegg to Heiden. Continuing in the direction of Trogen, a really cool route comes after the village of Wald: four kilometres with really beautiful curves and a very wide road (segment is saved on RISER). On the way to Altstatten we cross the Ruppenpass with a great view over the Rhine Valley. From here it goes 8 km downhill with many very narrow curves (segment is saved on RISER). Afterwards you reach a 9 km long and very well-known motorcycle route via the village of Stoss (segment is saved on RISER).

After that we go to Gais and through the beautiful Appenzellerland. Wolfhalden is worth a short stopover to enjoy the view of Lake Constance. My tour continues in the direction of Walzenhausen and then downhill to Berneck in the Rhine Valley.

The same route can also be driven on the other side of Lake Constance, giving a completely different perspective of the area. But what I like most about this region is that at every intersection you can decide where you want to go each time. You will be thrilled!

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOTORBIKE TOURS IN SARDINIA

Published by ANDREAS SOMMER at October 10, 2018 in Tours
I arrived with the ferry from Livorno. The crossing takes about 6 hours and I arrive on the island at about 18 o'clock. I had underestimated the journey from Olbia to the small village Bitti, for the 90 kilometers I am on the motorcycle for more than two hours. Since I'm already late, I enjoy the ride and the wind...

I AM THE DANGER! IMPRESSION OF A MOPED TRIP ON BALI

Published by MAX BRUSTBAUER at August 29, 2018 in Tours
'It's dangerous you say? ... I AM THE DANGER!' But the understanding laugh does not come and also my girlfriend does not find me funny. 'Excuse me. I am tedesco.' No, I can't save anything with that either, I'd better shut up. To ride a moped in Bali you don't need a driving license and obviously no humour...

CRUISIN’ AROUND AUSTRALIA: FROM WOLLONGONG TO MELBOURNE

Published by MOGI at July 20, 2018 in Tours
Heading from Wollongong, down the Princess Highway, all the way to Eden. Sounds like a long way but, there are heaps of stops on the way. It could take 8 to 12 hours to do it, if you really wanted to. But for me, I’ll cruise, I didn’t need to stop until Batemans Bay for fuel, already been there so I pushed on, through to Bega and a stop at the Yellow Peach Dam Rest Area, was awesome...

THE COUNTRY-, BLUES & WHISKEY MOTORCYCLE TOUR. GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.2

Published by GINA DREWES at July 13, 2018 in Tours
I don't listen to country, rarely blues - and whiskey is not necessarily the drink of my choice. But how could I have said no to a route that has the same title and leads through the country where my Harley was born! Although I had not yet had the urge to explore America, this motorcycle route through the southern states aroused my curiosity.

A 3-DAY TRIP ON THE NORTH COAST 500 IN THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS

Published by JOHN ADAM at July 05, 2018 in Tours
For anyone who doesn’t know, the North Coast 500 is a circular route circumnavigating mostly coastal roads around the northern tip of the Scottish Highlands. It is generally accepted that the start point is Inverness, and from there what awaits you is just over 800 kilometers of sweeping bends, single track back whacks and what is arguably the most incredible scenery in the UK...
