For Gie and I Stelvio was fun because it rained all day until shortly before we got there, so most everybody had stayed home.  :) :motonoises:

Here are a couple off-bike shots from OtP.

First one is Ralf and Heinz grabbing lunch at Chiemsee en route from Kiefersfelden to Salzburg.

Second is Michael releasing Ralf from the stocks at a castle on the Rhine after getting Ralf to admit that there are actually 2 or 3 roads in Austria that he has yet to perfectly commit to memory (but they are probably flat and not worth riding).   :motonoises:

Mark and Ralf (halfway out of frame) approach the fence at Nurburgring, Germany to get a better view. Moments later race officials told Mark he had to back away because he was wearing too much RED shirt and the racers might mistake him for a warning flag!  :))

Nurburgring, Germany Track?
Is that the track where you can pay $$ and ride your own machine for several laps at speed?
If so, I'd of paid the $$ to see Mark and Dan do laps, on Marc and Daan's bike's...  >:D

  The look on everyone's eyes,,, priceless!!

       eyes of Dan and Mark,,,,,   :wee_hee:
   
       eyes of Daan and Marc,,,,,          :c002:

       eye's of other people watching the 'mericans ,,,,,    :85:

Ride safe, Ted

Yep, that's the one. Mark and I thought we might get to ride it, but locals opted not to make arrangements -- something about all the body and bike parts not being able to fit in Michael's van.  :-[

There didn't appear to be any bikes on the track that day, but it sure looked liked a hoot if you could hit it when they had motos out there!  :great:

There was just a bit of drool on my lips to run it. Then I saw the corvette come by, up on the pipe as we used to say, Never mind. That driver was hammering some American aluminum (Ahlominium).
