Me - Switzerland - Kawi ER6N rental - life is gut!

Just rented this for the weekend in Switzerland. Photo is looking down from my hotel window. Just hope the weather clears. Brought rain gear though, so rain or shine...

Also brought along some motohouston stickers - hope to place them and upload some photos.

It does, it's just the size of a wallet though. Not sure why it's even there.

First video riding the Swiss Alps

The camera angle is poor, and I used up all my battery during the morning, crappy part of the ride. You can't even imagine how beautiful and fun it was. The tightest hairpin turns were 1st gear turns. I already used up 440 of my 600 km's allowed for the rental. Looks like I'll be paying extra for some mileage.

Video from my Swiss bike rental in

The weather was beautiful on Sunday, and had a great time until the cheap plastic license plate holder broke off and lost the plate. Looked around for it near a rough section of road and couldn't find it. I was over my mileage allowance and it was getting late anyway so I headed back.

Awesome! Jealous.
You suck.
Lol, I went riding yesterday too.
The roads were flat, straight, almost got run over by a redneck in a pickup, got bit by a mosquito and sweated thru my underwear.

Great trip, have fun!

The Alps! Highly recommended if you ever get a chance. Some day I'll have a first-born so I can trade them for another trip.
