Here we go!
Been looking out for a TAG HEUER commercial since the tag was posted - finally found a shop in Montreux. As you can see, they only sell the cheap stuff.
(Well, which shop in Montreux doesn't...)





If that works for you, I'll use the same spot as next tag. Just a bit closer, so you can read the text. "Swiss" is the important part.



As today, August 1st, is the Swiss national holiday, I'd like you to show me something Swiss.
A Swiss flag, some sign saying Switzerland or Swiss, advertisement for Swiss chocolate, a town called Little Zürich or whatever else you might find.

Good one. The new tag is anything Swiss. Guess it's time to buy a Swiss army knife for the bike.

Careful with the tyres, though...

Does this count?

I have Swiss Chard growing in my garden.





Not nearly as romantic as Switzerland, but it tastes wonderful!

Not so much romantic about Switzerland anyway....

Hmmm.... you didn't even really ride to get your bike there, did you?

It is creative, though. But still, I'm not totally convinced.
I mean, come on, it's the national holiday - I deserve some more!
( It DOES taste good!)

I did ride it across the lawn from my garage (about 30 meters). If it is a no go, I would love an excuse to ride for a Swiss tag!

I know where there is a fondue restaurant and a house that looks like a Swiss chalet. Hmmmm, what else?

Grab?



This is the American branch of Switzerland's greatest contribution to the world ( in my opinion).

I hear you!
(Although I really prefer the chocolate...)

And the logo is an inverted Swiss flag.

You tagged it, Sir!
On we go.

Oh Bugger! I just went out and got a triple swiss grab too



#1 My Swiss Motorway Sticker
#2 Little Switzerland Camp Site
#3 Swiss Way....

(Better luck next time)

I punished myself with a home made mincemeat and onion pie, but had no flour so the casing had to be made from Bacon....

New Tag

Damn, it is as if the Swiss flood gates opened up! Miss Swiss on the back of the bike would have been nice Mick!
New tag keeping with a red theme here. A red barn, or a cocktail lounge, or a red barn cocktail lounge!
