Riders in Switzerland / Riding swiss roads

Hello
I live in Switzerland. Call me Joe.
I have a Honda NC700X and I am a weekend rider who shuns the rain/waterful days.

Do you come from Switzerland or ride in Switzerland?

Drop a line and we can exchange ideas, ride details.

Ride safe!
~Joe

Exellent! I live in USA but keep a bike in Heidelberg. I have ridden through Switzerland several times. Good to know there is someone local willing to offer advice. Welcome!

Where in Switzerland?

I usually spend a few days in and around Andermatt each summer. (but not this year )

I tend to stay in the hilly parts and not go west or north into the flat parts - Uri, Schwyz, Berne, Valais, Graubunden and similar cantons.

Great country.

Hello all

To be exact, I live near Affoltern Am Albis, right in the middle between Zurich and Zug.

We have some groups of bikers here (english speaking) and we often ride day trips or evening 3-hr trips around mountain passes or lakes.

Leave me a msg if you are near Zug or Zurich. We may just end up meeting up.

Allow me to introduce myself...

My husband and I will be moving to Basel shortly after the first of the year. If all goes well, we'll be bringing his F800GS and my 1150GS with us.

I look forward to exploring our new "playground" and meeting some new riders

Thread killer....

Anyway, we're visiting in Basel right now. I left a card on someone's nicely kitted out GS yesterday, but no way of leaving an actual note. I know that they're on here, what with all of the "Ride the World" and ADV stickers on the back

Looks like bring the US BMWs here is going to be next to impossible, so we'll be shopping in the spring
