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!

Motorbike Highlights

Trip3
https://riserapp.com/t/mOlBWF1n235u/thomas-putz/sommertour-2018-tag-7-cevennes#11/44.2117/3.7683

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!

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...

AROUND THE 'ORTLER' GROUP - SEVEN AT A STROKE

Published by HARALD KRESCHAK at November 12, 2018 in Tours
(Stubai) - Brenner Pass - Jaufen Pass - ( Val Passiria - Vinschgau) - Stilfser Joch - Gaviapass (what a rough, beautiful pass!) - Tonale Pass - (Val du Nons) Mendel Pass - (Bolzano - Sarntal) - Penserjoch: This 'classic' round is impressive and spectacular again and again. The weather was wonderful on this Saturday, so I spontaneously decided to go for a ride early in the morning. An 'Iron Man' stage at the beginning of autumn - a demanding and strenuous one-day trip.

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...
