T2B: Day Two - Schluchsee (D) to Neukirchen (A)

Up and off by 08:30... Cloudy and cold!!!

First stop - Rothaus Brauerei.

Then it was down to the Rheinfalls...

... you may have noticed - there's not just Joe with me! That's right - Joe and I collected 3 other members to ride in the 'slow group' :-)

I'm glad it was the slow group as one of the member was caught doing 127 km/h in an 80 zone and had his license taken off him!
He we were waiting for the others to come by...

From there it was on to Liechtenstein for lunch and then a looooong slog to Neukirchen, Austria.

We finally got to the hotel rather late - 20:00 hrs and proceeded to go straight to lunch and beer!

I slept well...

Let's Go: Thunder To Bled...

Well it was a nice and slow start as we didn't have may kilometers to do up to the Schluchsee. So first port of call was the TCS in Brunegg to get the Austrian motor-way stickers then we loaded the 'Birds...

Then we were off, up the Albtal and on to... St. Blasien, Schwarzwald.

After that it was onto the first meeting point at the hotel in Schluchsee.

Within 10 minutes the others started rolling in... one by one...

GIVI Top Case On My 'Bird!

Well - I decided to take the GIVI Simply Top Case off the Tiger as it just didn't look right! It's more of a town-kinda case and not an adventure thingy!

Then all of a sudden I had a thought... What about using the case on the Thunderbird!? Especially for my pending 'Thunder to Bled' trip.
So on it went. A wonderful 45 liters of packing space - nice and light - lockable - waterproof... What does man want more...
