Austria for Holiday !

Hi out there, so this will be my first "ride report".
But Ill mainly focus on posting some pictures for you and just give some general information about the trip.

On monday, 13th July, I started a trip to autria with a guy I only knew from the internet, riding a GS 650. Our trip lasted 8 days and we did 2604 kilometers, riding through czech republic down to austria, where we did some beautiful roads and really enjoyed our time there
Ive nearly never been abroad until that point of time, so a lot of things were new to me...

A short stop in Děč.
Most of my prejudices about czech were confirmed: In fact it is a poor country ! Lots of damaged buildings and bad roads.

Glad to get to austria !

The first mountains came up !

So, where was the roadfood-thread, eh ?

The Grossglockner High Alpine Road ! AWESOME !!!!
Bikers heaven for 48 kilometers, reaching up to 2500 m above sea level !

Another beautiful road was the so called Nockalm-road. And further more there were less tourists...

Home sweet home ;)

Visiting the famous Erzberg !

I wish Ohio looked like that! Just absolutely wonderful. I dream of riding mountains roads (Alps). One of these days.....maybe.
