Eurotrip 2019 - Pics n stuff

Well, back a week now from a super trip to Sachsenring Motogp and then to a few other cities

Bikes shipped with Overlanders, unreal attention to shipping and takes the bullshit of the UK run out of it

Did 2200 kms and stayed in
Nordlingen
Altenburg
Prague
Vienna
Bratislava
Salzburg







The depot in Memmingen Airport


Somewhere near Nordlingen on the first evening




Day 2 we split for Altenburg via Rothenburg ob der Tauber - well worth a stop




As was the town of Bamburg


A couple of laps of the Frohburg road racing track (closed roads ye honour)

Day 4 we headed from Altenburg down to Prague - 1 rather long wait on the side of the road for a break down truck that never landed, 2014 R1 fried a battery so we found a local bike shop and McGyver'd the shit out of it

Called in a 14:00 and still no one landed by 17:30

Absolute savage pics!!

Overlanders is an absolute no brainer, used them myself recently for a trip around the alps. Worth every penny!! (it actually came up cheaper than the ferry and all that hassle)

Re: Eurotrip 2019 - Pics n stuff

Great shots and report, taking the camera and vids is a lot of hassle (as opposed to just tearin' around the place like everyone else) but it's great for looking back on things in a few years time and showing others what it was like.

You'd be well sore with aches and pains actually riding out there ( and probably flat-spot a rear tyre ) so shipping with overlanders and just landing with ryanair and jumping onto a bike sound great.

Add up the ferry costs, petrol and toll roads and it's probably cheaper too!

Can you get a helicopter up to the Eagles Nest to visit
