Hi, Myself and a friend are travelling from London to Capetown down the East coast of Africa from Sept10 to Dec10 and could do with some company. We are on a Yamaha Tenere and Honda Transalp. Are you still looking for people to ride with?

Hi Lou,

Was just reading this thread and thought I would mention I have ridden the Route Napolean from Annecy down to Cannes, and it is nice. I have also ridden through Switzerland twice, and not wishing to say one is better than the other, but if I had to pick just one (and perhaps it will be better for your routing) I would head through Switzerland, the roads up and down the passes are great and so is the scenery, as well, you could touch down into Northern Italy to the Lake District (bit more traffic right on the lake roads) and then head East and touch some great passes like Stelvio to mention one.

Just a thought. Have a great ride and trip!

Ian

Hi there,

I'm riding from the UK out to Slovenia, then Hungary, Romania, Ukraine up to Scandinavia and back around.

I'll be leaving the end of June so should be around Slovenia at the start of July, is there any chance you'd be around for some of that and want to join in?

Cheers

Ioan
