Hello from a Dutchman in Switzerland
First post on the HUBB! I met Susan and Grant yesterday in person at the Touratech event over here. Very nice to see them live and share the passion for travel!
* Born and raised in the Netherlands. I've lived in Switzerland since 1999.
* Riding since 2001, started with a Suzuki Bandit 600 (84.000km and going strong)
* Added a Ducati ST3s in 2009 (38.000km and going much stronger ;-))
* And finally last month a Yamaha XT660Z Ténéré. Planning to ride for a year starting mid 2016. Transasia "southern route". No final destination, yet Australia or New Zealand would be nice. I'll have plenty of time to get to know the bike and prepare it for the trip.
I hope to be able to give to and gain from this great forum.
P.S. For (on-road) riding tips in the Swiss, Italian and French Alps: send me a message.
