Default The story of a Euro-trip around Switzerland

This was a trip I organised in June 2007, covering France, Switzerland and Italy. I took the UK riders across to meet up with my very good Swiss-German friends and we spent a few nights in their 'cowshed' (really). I filmed the tour and made this video out of the sequences. It tells a (funny) story and shows you what a wonderful region the French/Swiss/Italian Alps is. You will see two ST1300's, hear the engines, set against a sound track which adds to the story. When you see the snow, remember, this is June!
The video is some 37 minutes long, but I think it is worth watching. Get the popcorn in, settle into the sofa, kick back and think 'I'd like to ride those roads!'

Beautiful scenery Dick!

Some of the video made me feel downright cold while watching. Brrrr!
