Motorcyclist Magazine's Alps Adventure

Hey guys and gals,

We're looking for the right group of enthusiasts to ride with us (well, not all of us, Ari Henning and Aaron Frank specifically) for our next big adventure bike test. You'll be able to give us your input for inclusion in the story, too. A unique opportunity to have your voice heard.

We'll be comparing 7 of the latest bikes. Including the Honda Cross Tourer and the 2012 and 2013 BMW GSs back to back.

It'll be swanky, too. Nice hotels every night and a chase truck carrying your luggage. 5 full days of riding (all on tarmac) through 4 countries through the most epic routes in the Alps.

Who's in?

More details on the Edelweiss website:

You had me with "Alps", "experienced", "Frank" and "Henning."

I got lost at $3K. Damn, that sounds fun!!! I even have a KTM Adventure and a GS.

That trip should be a blast for anyone privileged enough to be a part...

I said I needed to go for a birthday present.

Sorry I have to miss it again....

Yes Please!

Hmmm. 5 long days of riding in the Alps, on 7 different Adv bikes. Twist my arm...
Sign me up!

Technically, I guess I'll sign myself up, but I think you get the point.

3rd times' a charm

Considering I've ridden the Alps twice, I'd love to tame Timmelsjoch again. Hope I get chosen.
giddy up!!
