As always in recent years, we have chosen a destination (Cabo de Sao Vicente in Portugal) and then drove in this direction without more precise planning.

Landscape highlight: in Piedmont

Gentle hills on the slopes of which the excellent red wine grows and on the hilltops there is almost always a small picturesque village. The roads on the hills are winding and it goes up and down - a real pleasure! And if you like, you can continue this culinary pleasure with truffle pasta and Barolo wine!

The Cévennes - motorcyclist country?! That's how it is to read from time to time, but what does that really mean? Small and smallest roads, curvy and even more curvy through lonely hills, up to plateaus and down into gorges. However, the finest rolling gravel ("gravillions") lurks again and again on the track, which then only gives hardcore bikers pleasure.

Trip5
https://riserapp.com/t/1CTtRsebb_eq/thomas-putz/sommertour-2012-tag-16-im-peneda-geres-nationalpark

The north of Portugal - a "must" for bikers who like to explore small, out of time villages and changing landscapes far away from wide roads and constantly present gastronomy. The pavement changes from asphalt to cobblestones to gravel and dirt roads; even an old Roman road is included! Not every "sight" is easy to find in this way, but it is definitely worth exploring the ways to get there!

THE FIRST RIDE OUT ON A NEW BIKE

Published by PAUL at March 08, 2019 in Articles
It’s been on my mind for a while to get another dual purpose / adventure / dirt bike… whatever you want to call them. I have my XJR, I love it! I can’t see myself ever selling it. Years ago, I had an XT600E Yamaha, basic and can’t break it. At this time I also was competing in Trials competitions, only at amature level on a bultaco sherco 350, and then a sherpa 290...

GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.3 - COUNTRY HATTRICK ON THE MOTORBIKE

Published by GINA DREWES at November 16, 2018 in Tours
Carinthia is the southernmost province of Austria and I grew up here. The borders to Italy and Slovenia are a stone's throw away and so I spent a part of my childhood at the sea. However it also felt like years in the car, since my mum made the country roads unsafe with her green lame duck at that time. What always led to bare nerves of all fellow travellers and could only be made good again with a visit to...
