I took a couple of hours to check out Passwang Pass – again – and the pass I’d been told about on the other side of the ridge. It was another beautiful day in Switzerland and the green hills made for an excellent backdrop to some excellent roads.
I snuck in a few hours in the Black Forest last week and am just now posting about it. It wasn’t too much – just a ride through some nice quiet roads on a lovely day. I ended up riding to Titisee (DE) but it was much too crowded with summer vacationers for my liking. At least “my liking” while wearing riding gear and walking around in the hot sun.
While I could probably ride my motorcycle every day, all day around here, it really isn’t feasible. Besides, there are so many other things to do and see while not on a motorcycle. Dan and I decided to give the alpine mountaineering sport of “klettersteig” a chance. Here’s our first try at it. I think that it went well and I’m looking forward to the next opportunity!
Dan and I, and our friend Bob, decided that we should see more of the Alps. We took the weekend to visit the Jura Mountains and a bit of the French Alps. The weather was just about perfect, although the heat was a little much at times.

I should have Part II up in a day or two!
I took the day to explore the area south of Basel, down along the Swiss/French border. It was even more pleasant than I expected! I took a LOT of photos because I just couldn’t get over how every single road was so picturesque and entertaining. To go for a six hour ride and never once get bored really is something to crow about!
The same old roads, with the same old weather, but this time with Dan! And Bob! What a great day with some great people. There are a lot of pictures, so please give it a moment to load completely!
Finally! An honest-to-goodness Swiss ride! Unfortunately Dan couldn’t go with me, but I tried to take a lot of pictures so that he didn’t feel left out. And besides, now I know where to take him the next time we want to head out for a day ride.
The link is **here**, but please allow a minute for the pictures to load – I posted a lot of them!
Yes, I got out for another ride! This one was even better because Dan went with me <3 We took the bikes south to the Emmental region and then parked them while we went hiking.

I was promised rain, a welcome relief to the very hot weather we’ve been having. I decided that the best way to celebrate was to head out for a ride on the Honda. Here’s what I did…
