April 2007 was the hottest April ever registered in Germany, so i guess I underestimated the weather a bit...a bad mistake in the Alps, the weather there is notorious for coming up with nasty surprises. My jacket was good, but i didnt bring my winter gloves, just thin summer leather gloves. Bad mistake.

@Carl:
if you get the chance you will want to ride the perhaps biggest, highest and most spectacular road in the Alps, the Großglockner-Hochalpen (High Alpine) Straße. It´s the pass that usually opens latest, so you had best plan around that. Big site on the internet, opening times each year can be found there:

Good luck, it´s worth some saving!

P.S. On the website they say they´re planning to turn the road into a "Motorradhimmel", a biker heaven! sounds good, doesn´t it?
