All locations outside of the US. Looking to go around the world or around the town. Find riding buddies to places, rallies, events, shows and races. Post your favorite routes. Post your rally reports. Start and plan a meet or rally.
My personal preference would be first week July. This would yield the best chance of good weather, plus it allows people to add time before or after without getting into trouble with vacation traffic or closed passes due to snow.
Exact duration will be decided later; will have to look at my maps too to see how I can fit what and where. I have some ideas, but I will get to those later.

God, this looks like fun! I`ve allways dreamed about riding in the Alps. If by some chance santa drops a K1300R on my dorstep next christmas, I`m there!
Just a heads up; try to stay clear of the weeks the general poluplation in the Alp region are on vacation... It might be a bit "trafficy" then.. Oh, and some of the Norwegians I know who have ridden the alps in the summer, heartly reccomends Cortina in northern Italy as a brilliant starting point for daily riding excursions...
Bummer that it's in 2013! I'm in the US military, and I'm due to rotate out of Italy in July of 2013....figures! Guess I'll just have to ride them myself during this summer. Maybe I could get a little bit of an extension or something. This trip sounds awesome!
By the way, Cortina is a really, really nice place to start. Let me know if you need any advice on the planning portion in Italy.
I'd be inclined to get Alpinebikers two peneeth,he recently sold an RC45 which I had a bit to do with ,and as Dave the guy who collected from his house said,'Bit different sat in a back garden overlooking the Alps
I think it's only fair that throttlemeister 'takes the lead' on this as he started the thread and agreed to look into it if enough interest was shown. I am not sure exactly what needs to be done at this point.
Saying that, I will be making own Alps trip this summer, (my first Alps trip!) so will 'scout' the location, so to speak, for passes and routes that i think may be worth visiting, but there members on this forum who literally live on the doorstep of the Alps and know the area like the back of their hand.
Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.
Timing is the only critical thing for me. I'm leaving Italy in July of 2013, so anything around May or early June is good. Earlier is better too so that you're not trying to contend with all of the tourists. Can't wait to see how this all comes together!
