Hi Armin, glad you enjoyed Austria, that's what also I like to do once back in my country of birth, go biking into the mountains, enjoy the landscape, the delicious & never boring local food and the down-to-earth people and forget about all bad things in life !! Next time you should try the Stilfserjoch in Southern Tyrol, the Timmelsjoch between N & S Tyrol and the Silvretta Pass between T and Vorarlberg. If we could meet there next summer I could show you the best of all but won't inform on which Alpine pass I mean, it;s a real treasure that not many in the EU know. Keep on biking !! Was enjoying these passes both on the SR500 in 2013 and on the GSX750 in 2014. When did you actually go there in 2013 ? This year, for example I did only encounter shitty weather, rain & snow.................but last year in August it was incredibly hot.
