Dear Family & Friends,Today was another day spent in the Swiss Alps. We crossed over the Alps 9 times today using various passes... The views were beautiful and the roads were anywhere from great to challenging... In one valley we stopped at a 500 year old house that was once inhabited by a local witch. Today it just serves good coffee...Along...

Tuesday June 19th Dear Family & Friends, Today was quite a full day.. Before I get into talking about today's activities I will pontificate a bit…. First I have noticed very surprisingly that houses in Ireland tend to be rather new. Most that I have seen are 20-30 years old and many much newer. Unlike England where there are lots of old...
Dear Family & Friends,Today was a three part day.... Scotland, wandering, back in England...We started off in Edinburgh and wanted to end up in Newcastle.. This time I set my GPS to find a route with no tolls, no highways, no freeways... What a great choice! For two hours we rode beautiful back country narrow lanes through hill and...
Oct. 20th Thursday Dear Family & Friends, This will be a quick report. For all my concern about the weather during our last week of our trip the weather has turned out to be much better than I expected. Cool, low 50s high 40s but no rain and only partly cloudy. With modern riding gear I can be warm in any temperature. We got up early this morning and met our friend Georg and his son Robin. They took his retro Jaguar hot rod and we on our motorcycles and set out for about an hours ride to the Schlumpf museum. A quick back story. The Schlumpf brothers were very successful Swiss business men that manufactured cloth in France and LOVED Bugattis. Unfortunately, they loved the cars a bit too much. They collected the largest collection of Bugattis anywhere but bankrupted their company doing it. I also believe they spent their employees pension savings on cars, which of course the employees were not happy about.. The French government prosecuted them ( I am not sure if they avoided prison or not) and they lost their entire collection. Since then many other cars have been added to the museum and it is certainly one of the largest collection of Buggatis and other classic cars in the world. If you like cars go to my blog for LOTS of photos. After the museum we all had lunch, said our good bye, and Georg gave us an impressive display of spinning donuts in the parking lot. Duane and I put on all our riding gear, turned up the heated jackets and rode for about another hour to the French town of Strausborg. If is very close to Germany hence the name. We are staying right downtown in an old traditional hotel with an elevator right out of the 19th century. We are going to spend two nights here so tomorrow is a site seeing day and a bit of relaxation. Again if you like cars go to my blog!! Jason PS: Here is a short video of Dune, Georg, and myself riding through the back roads of Switzerland Riding Motorcycles through Switzerland Entering the...
This was a German casino we walked by.. it is so sterile it looked like a launching room for NASA.. They could take a few tips from Las Vegas, if they are going to take your money at least make an effort to make it look fun....Did I mention things tend to be smaller in Europe. This was a...
