Ted "the Great" and Russ "the Magnificent" at Passo Stelvio.
   NOTE: Texas stickers on sign post from our 2016 trip and this 2018 trip.
                   Important, COG sticker was also added.
             Also note that there are a few more twisty roads and switchbacks waiting for us to ride down (and back up)..
             PS: The next sign (behind photographer) had a COG sticker on it that Mark and Dan had placed during their 2017 "Over the Pond" ride.

Jack, who were you following? (Rob/Attila/who?}
Do you have an uphill video of Stelvio/other similar pass?

Ride safe, Ted

You mostly see Attila, with Rob and Prostur in front of him. I took videos of a few other passes, but realized too late that I should not have used my waterproof housing on the camera as it produced a glare and fogged up going up near the top of Stelvio and in Grossglockner; so the quality is not as sharp as would have been otherwise. :-[  I do have some other segments that turned out, but haven't tried to post them yet.

Well it has been a month since the Rally ended! I still miss the great fun we had before, during and after the Rally! Still trying to get used to the local awesome roads here in Southern California! The roads in the Alps are like nothing you will see here in the states. That is not a knock on our roads because we have some unbelievable roads that I have been lucky to ride here....it is just different! If you have a chance to visit the Alps please do!! You will enjoy it sooo much!!

Yupp, I wuz loose with No Muzzle and little supervision.

I had a blast, and I did it flogging a poor little Honda 600.
            Loved the little/light bike!

NOTE: Some folks felt bad for me on the little bike, and would ask why I didn't have a bigger bike.
               I told them I didn't need a bigger bike. 
                    I sed I had an advantage over the guys, and had to give them a edge.
  Of course, {they would step right into my evil plan},, and ask "what was my advantage".. >:D

I always replied;   {My advantage is} "I'm from TeXaS"...  :13:

Ya'll shoulda gone!!!

Ride safe, Ted

PS: I never lie. I just enhance the truth... :hee20hee20hee:
