Laugh In the heart of Europe

190 km from Venice, 30km from the Alps, 95 km from the first sea island. I'm really lucky bastard to live in such a beautiful environment and I would like some of these beauties to share with you. Firstly , a few pictures to get a grip
(Some images are not from motorcycle trips but anyway)

My tools


And recent trips











With my son in the Alps


Safe driving course

I will start with Grossglockner as a travel Mecca for motorcyclists in these places. From the house I can do in one day (not counting the pain in the ass after 600km) but i wanted to see some Tyrol beauties so I finished it in two days.

Start was a little boring, but as soon as I turned off the highway things become much better.




I passed Treviso, Pontebba and climbed on the Pramollo pass


Weather was fine, maybe a little too warm for my taste.
BTW: Sorry about the lack of motorcycle posing pictures, but until now I did not intend to publish them, and I look at my thumper every day.

Pass



Going down. There is a small cosy city with unpronounceable name. C-M and something.


ups and downs


This valley leads to the Grossglockner. The weather was becoming increasingly hot


by the way

Well.. Looks like Europe beats us in the scenery department for sure. I would say that most of the pictures you posted so far, are basically postcard worthy.

For such a nice compliment you get a beer if you're ever in these parts of the world.

Cheers

It is Hyosung GT125 from South Korea. It's my sons bike since he has the A1 licence (up to 125ccm).
One of rare full sized 125ccm, not 3/4 like many others. We modified it a little of course

I had the extreme pleasure of spending two tours of duty at Aviano AB (about 75km north of Venezia). You ARE a lucky bastard

Of all the places that I've been, the Friuli / Veneto / Alto Adige has got to be the most beautiful area on earth. LOVE the Dolomites.

If you haven't been there, GO.

And Darel, looking at your pictures, you've given me a whole list of new places to visit.

Hi MichaelJ

Dolomites are on schedule each year. But still I was not there yet..
Next year for sure.

If I remember correctly Aviano is responsible for Slovenian air defense?
