Sunday morning: The air and the sky are clear and crisp... So up on the 'TriumphTripleTiger' and after having a cappuccino we go towards the morning and the sun, from the Stubaital towards Kühtai. Wooow - what wonderful fresh air flows into the helmet.

Follow the Stubaital Bundesstraße in the direction of Schönberg and then behind Schönberg onto the B182 in a relaxing, swinging rhythm in the direction of Mutters. The view of the Europa Bridge and the first rays of sunshine ensure a relaxed start into the day.

Behind Mutters there is a magnificent view from Telfs (Oberland) to far behind Innsbruck and the Nordkette. I make a stop to simply let the landscape work its effect on me.

From there, take the L304 towards Götzens, Birgits and Axams to Kematen. There is also the famous blue "Backhaus Ruetz".

At the intersection before Kematen we turn left into the Sellraintal Landesstraße. From there we head for the "Kühtaier mountains" via Sellrain, the mountaineering villages of Gries in the Sellrain valley, St. Siegmund and Hagen, towards our destination "Kühtai" at 2020m.

And from here on, cows and donkeys stand by the roadside guarding the road. At the Längenthal reservoir you have the opportunity to relax and let your mind wander.

Tip:

Take some food for a little picnic and enjoy the view and your time off while eating. But there are also plenty of opportunities to stop in the Sellrain Valley, for example the "Bikerrast Sporthoine Hotel Antoine" in Gries im Senraintal.

But now it is time to enjoy the return trip and to let the morning come to a relaxed end with the swings from the Sellraintal, the view of the Nordkette above the Inn Valley up towards the Stubaital.

However, first we make a short detour from Schönberg via the sometimes rather narrow and cracked road up to the "Gleinserhöfen" at 1412m. From there you have a wonderful view of the Stubai Valley, and the Innsbruck Nordkette below Mount Serles.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOTORBIKE TOURS IN SARDINIA

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...
