Austria seen from a motorcycle

I just want to show you why I am so slow in restoring my Dodge.. apart from a little work I have to do now and then there is a temptation.. Motorcycles!

My wife is the center of the panorama- as it should be!

I have lived in the coastal plain in Texas my entire life. Have visited the Rocky Mountains many times and the Great Smoky Mountains twice. None of them hold the beauty of the pictures you have shared here. What beautiful vistas you have. Thank you for sharing!

It's my pot and I'll stir it if I want to. If you're not careful, I'll stir your's as well!

Awesome. Cool. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Nice bikes too.

In the second last picture I see a grill over the headlights of the bike. Why is that necessary?

The white BMW is a Rally Dakar bike from 1983 - and they needed the grill.

And now for some pictures

Well, since you seem to like it, I selflessly undertook another ride with three friends, just to get you some more pictures

This are some views from the Mangat, a mountain in Slovenia.
