New companions, first flat tire, amazing people, sceneries and little problems with the Transalp

Time is flying, 3 weeks are gone again… how to summarize? The last time we updated the Blog we stayed with Kelly (from ADV Rider) and his lovely dog Bruno in Prince Georg.  We had not only the chance to blog but as well to do laundry and some little maintenance. We spend a great time cooking and exchanging experiences. Thank you Kelly for your great hospitality and for the nice ride together on the day we left – and a big hug to Bruno!!! There as well we met Erik; original from Switzerland but living more than 20 years+ in Canada – it was fun to meet you again and again on the road. We wish both of you all the best and hopefully we meet again one day.

Our route is following the famous National Parks. We went through Jasper and Banf in Canada. The Glacier National Park we did not really enter as the “road to the sun” was not open yet and nobody could tell us when they will do so. Instead of that we explored the “Hungry Horse Lake” which we really can recommend. On the way to Yellowstone we heard about the “Beartooth Highway” which leads from the North-East into the Park. While heading that direction we were captured by a real thunderstorm with lightening, heavy rain, hail and strong winds (we were even afraid the motorcycles will be blow away). Luckily we were just standing in front of the “White Sulfur Springs Motel” – the people were really nice and the rooms had reasonable prices and included the usage of the hot springs – so we just checked in. Later on another two motorcyclist (one Indian and one 1800cc Kawasaki) arrived after a 1000km ride from Montana and socked by the rain (unfortunately we forgot your names – sorry! Please send us a message it was really nice meeting you guys!!! Save travels!)

  1. Hey Sascha und Kerstin, stets seid ihr unter Kontrolle.
    Soviel Schnee hätte ich nicht erwartet, aber in ca. 2500 m Höhe.

    Weiter so, immer südlich; Feuerland ist noch weit.
    Gruß, UVE

  2. Ein Verfolger ist hinter Euch. Regelmäßig wird Tour, Standort und Zustand von Mensch und Maschine aufgenommen.
    Haltet den Blick in Richtung Süden, das Ziel kommt näher.
    Weiterhin gute Reise, UVE aus Hamburg
