6 days in South Tyrol

Hello @all
Here is my report of the South Tyrol trip of the Alpenbiker, pentecost 2009!

Like last year we started our tour in Montan, South Tyrol.
The house Heinrich was fast fully booked and we could start the further route planning. Unfortunately Heike („Dirty Osirius “) , Franz („Aquarius “) as well as Inge and Rudi („katfish “) failed just before start of the tour, so the number of participants reduced to 17.
Together with Alfred, Jacky and Thomas we arrived already on Thursday. Chris and Kurt also came on Thursday. The others should arrive on Friday.

Thursday, 28th May 2009

We met Alfred (“Merlin”) at 9:30am at McDonald in Sonthofen. Passing Hindelang we went up the pass called “Oberjoch” to meet Thomas (“Toutou”) and Jacky. Now on four motorcycles we continued through the valley “Tannheimer Tal” to Weissenbach. We crossed the valley of river Lech and went up the valley “Namlostal”. Here we enjoyed the empty, winding roads and in Bichlbach wejoined the main road to “Fernpass”. There was amazing little trafic and we soon arrived at the road works at the coaching inn Zugspitzblick. When the traffic light showed green again, we had the road to Nassereith for us!


After a short stop at the service station in Nassereith we continued passing Telfs on our way to Innsbruck. Here we selected as usual the beautiful ancillary road via Ellbögen to Mattrei.
We had lunch in St. Peter in the hotel St. Peter. We only can recommend it!!!


The 3 course special was only €6,80. The nice land lady would have liked to sit on Thomas BMW and come with us!



After lunch we continued via Mattrei to Brenner Pass, Sterzing and Brixen. Here we turned left to the pass called “Würzjoch”.
The route up to St. Andrea was wunderful! A wide road with good tarmac and wonderful curves –motorcycling at its best!
But leaving St. Andrea behind there we experienced the disillusionment! The next 15 km down to the junction leading into valley Villnöss were repaired in the worst way possible! On the entire section you are in constant endeavors to find the gaps in the bitumen rag rug – awful!





We continued to ascend throuhg the valley Villnöss via Gufidaun to Lajen.



The route is very narrow and very steep, but it offers wonderful of views into the valley Eisacktal down below. In Lajen we had a break for cappuccino.
Then the way led us down to Waidbruck. Because of time restrictions we drove then directly via Bozen and Auer to Montan to the guesthouse Heinrich.


Mrs. Amplatz welcomed us very friendly and during dinner and later on - together with Kurt („medicus47 “), Chris („sir footloose “) and Gabi (they arrived on Thursday) we could recall the impressions we had on our first day.

With the best greatings from Germany
Rudi

Hi everybody,

thnak's for your reply!


And here is the next part of the RR:



Friday, 29th May 2009

A view from the balcony: The sun shining - exactly like the day before - and promised a beautiful day.


Today we had planned the “Montan Fittanze Tour“.


The tour is quite long (370km), especially the 70 km section between Recoaro and Passo Tittanze is fastidious and poses high requirements to the drivers ability.

With six motorcycles we took the direct way via Trento to Rovereto as a start. From there we enjoyed the wonderful road up Passo Pian delle Fugazze - wonderful!!!

And here iss the next part of the journey:

Sunday, 31th May 2009

During the night the weather went worse and the sky was full of clouds. The tour to the „Würzjoch“ was planned for today.


But before our tour we had to make our group photo session first.


Some of the participants had other interest today and so we went with 8 motorcycles in direction of Bozen. After passing Leifers we turn right to La Costa. A narrow but nice road, that climbed steeply uphill and offered wonderful views down. Then to the left towards Kohlern and on we went towards Bozen then Ritten till we reached Klobenstein. A wide road with stunning curves uphill – a dream for every biker. We left Klobenstein and went on to Lengstein, where the road got narrow, but with good views over Eissack valley. Via Barbian (turned left) we reached Villanders and downhill to Klausen. Here we turned right and instantanously left through the city centre of Klausen. Another turn left (below the road to Brenner Pass) in direction of Latzfons. This road lead us - also very narrow – through a narrow ravine steeply uphill.





Arriving in Latzfons suddenly our “loneliness“ vanished! Every where were people and cars. Maybe they just returned from church.
