Off Road in The Alps?

Will be touring the Swiss Alps/Western Dolomites next week. Anyone have any solid points for off-road routes (passes) in this area? Will be riding BMW GS lightly loaded. Thanks in advance.

How "high" is high pressure?

How much psi should my new fuel line be able to handle? The Goodyear fuel line I just bought indicates "50 psi." Will this work for an external fuel filter mod for my 1150 GS?
