It was the beginning of June 2016 when I sat on a motorcycle for the first time. Back then I didn't even know exactly how the gearshift worked. I was faced with the difficult decision of whether to start playing golf or start motorcycling. Today I am convinced that I made the right decision. It's my third season and I don't regret a single second.

The region where I can usually be found when I finish my rounds at the end of the day is the Rhine Valley around St. Gallen. For a motorcyclist it is the perfect area to live in. After only a few kilometres, the first bends are driven and the road starts to climb. No matter if you are in Switzerland or on the other side of the Rhine, in Vorarlberg.

After 2.8 km you will leave Canton St. Gallen for Canton Appenzell Innerroden. After two bends there is already the next canton: Appenzell Ausserroden.

My route leads me further towards Oberegg to Heiden. Continuing in the direction of Trogen, a really cool route comes after the village of Wald: four kilometres with really beautiful curves and a very wide road (segment is saved on RISER). On the way to Altstatten we cross the Ruppenpass with a great view over the Rhine Valley. From here it goes 8 km downhill with many very narrow curves (segment is saved on RISER). Afterwards you reach a 9 km long and very well-known motorcycle route via the village of Stoss (segment is saved on RISER).

After that we go to Gais and through the beautiful Appenzellerland. Wolfhalden is worth a short stopover to enjoy the view of Lake Constance. My tour continues in the direction of Walzenhausen and then downhill to Berneck in the Rhine Valley.

The same route can also be driven on the other side of Lake Constance, giving a completely different perspective of the area. But what I like most about this region is that at every intersection you can decide where you want to go each time. You will be thrilled!

On 19 January was the day to put a spontaneously born idea into action. In other words: On Friday after a shorter working day I set off with my friends from Bobber-Store.com and my Dyna-Bro Jürgen for Verona in Italy, more than 700 km away. It is the city where the most famous of all love stories is said to have happened, that of Romeo and Juliet...

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

Published by GINA DREWES at 16 novembre 2018 in Percorsi
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 12 novembre 2018 in Percorsi
(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.
