Day4… The Return loop - Meiringen – Sonthofen

After fixing the bill and a big thank-you to our hosts it was time to get rolling again Fred , who’d been doing really well on his CBR 600 despite missing pass-experience, had to leave us for home, at least it was in brilliant sunshine…
Off to the Grimselpass (2165 m) for the rest of us.

Once more, down to Gletsch and a left turn up the Furkapass (2431 m). The uphill stretch is fairly wide and easy to navigate, the drop down the other side is lots narrower and the sheer drop on the right looks threatening.
Through Andermatt and up the Oberalppass (2044 m).

A short break, then via Sedrun and Disentis towards Chur for lunch (and a short meet with some folks from the Swiss Chopper Forum (www.chopperforum.ch). Chur to Landquart is a quick section, but some roadwork in Landquart had us baffled. A very convoluted detour resulted in a myriad of turnoffs to get us back to where we’d started!!
We worked it out in the end, though….Maienfeld, Balzers , thenVaduz/Liechtenstein.

From here via Feldkirch and Götzis to Dornbirn for a right turn across the Bödele and Schwarzenberg to Hittisau. Goodbyes were said at the service station before the short hop back home to Sonthofen.
