Where are we going on our motorcycle trip?

Jackie and I will be touring the Alps of Europe with RoadRUNNER Travel and our friends from RoadRUNNER Magazine. We’ve rented 2 BMW F800 GT bikes.  We’ll climb the mountain passes of Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, and Switzerland, spending the nights in small villages along the way.


Wayne’s Comments for the Curious

It’s my job to seek out and catalogue the best motorcycle rides in the Blue Ridge Mountain region stretching from Virginia to north Georgia. Over the years the list of great two lane mountain roads has grown to many hundreds and constantly expanded the series of motorcycle pocket maps I strive to keep more up-to-date than your GPS, Google, or other sources. It’s a job I take seriously, a passion, and a way to make my living from the seat of a motorcycle.

“There are more great motorcycle rides in the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains than anywhere else” is my claim and I’d feel dishonest if I didn’t back it up with experience. Several times a year I go exploring around our country to experience other great motorcycle rides and see how they stack up to what I know of here in the southeast. I’ve been all over the nation. This year however, I’ve raised the bar.

I’ve been saving all my pennies to make one ultimate trip – riding the Alps of Europe. I’ve been missing those fun trips exploring new areas, particularly explorations in the mountains of California which I’m getting to know pretty well (at least the north half of the state). In about 2 weeks, Jackie and I fly to Munich, Germany to join a motorcycle tour with our friends at RoadRUNNER Magazine. We’ll spend almost 2 weeks riding through the Alps in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, and Italy. I’ve just got to know how our roads stack up against some of the best in the world.
