Upper Styria (Austria)

It's been a while since we did this trip, but a new term started and sadly there wasn't much time left for writing and posting.

However it were great two days, with my friends Markus and Michael.
The bikes: Yamaha XJ 600, Kawasaki ER 500 an Kawasaki VN 800 Classic;

For some reasons I forgot to turn on the gps tracker mode, so here is the rout marked with google:



As usually we started in foggy Graz and took the A9 to Mitterdorf im Mürztal. When we stopped for fuel the sun broke through the clouds. That also made Michi and Markus happy:



We crossed the Seebergsattel and stopped for lunch shortly after.


Markus has already caught his meal:



We followed the way to Gußwerk and then turned left into the Gesäuse.

Short stop, to have a look at the map:



At Admont we turned right again and drove do Altenmarkt bei St. Gallen, then through the Kalkalpen over the Pyhrnpass to Liezen.

Short stop for a bike check somewhere in the Kalkalpen:




We stopped again in front of the Pyhrnpass and I spoted a BMW sidecar:


We continued our trip through the Ennstal. Our day endet at the foot of the Sölkpass, in a nice little bed and breakfast.

The view to the Sölkpass (Yeah, I love HDR ):


Tried a shot of the skye, while we drank a few beer at the hotel terace:

Markus had some more then Michael and I :


Next morning after a real good breakfast we started early:

Some riding impressions:





The view at the top:


Yeah, this road was awesome:


Michael and me posing:


Down it goes again:



And on we rode to St. Peter am Kammersberg, Scheifling and Neumarkt in der Steiermark. At Friesach, which is a beautiful, medieval, little city, we stopped for a cup of coffee:






Back on the road, we decided to ride above the Klippitztörl, where we stopped for lunch:


Dark clouds appeared on the horizon, so we hurried up, and rushed over the Packsattel. The rain followed us but we managed to get home safley and dry.

Sure looks like a great place to ride. I've always loved those narrow streets that run through small villages. Reminds me of when I visited Europe some 25+ years ago, though not Austria. I'll have to live my European dream vacation(s) through photo's like yours.

Thanks for taking the time to post your ride!

Great post!

Thanks! Austria is a beautiful country. Mountains, villages, lakes . . . spent a great vacation there, many years ago.

My dad, whom I ride with often, has spent years in Austria on vacations!!!
