"This experience will go down as the most memorable,
auxilarating, and exciting trip of my many long years. Thanks to both of you
for creating such an experience. Both Doug and I appreciated your efforts. Hope
to see you again soon."

It's time to wave goodbye and hit the open
We made it to the top.
"Well, fortunately for you guys we made it back to the U.S. !!!
:-) The last half of our trip turned out to be a "trip from hell" as our
Toronto to Mpls. flight was cancelled... Oh well. This did little to overshadow
the fabulous time we had thanks to you and Ellie. It was a great experience for
Rocky & I and I hope we (including everyone in our group) weren't too out
of control for you. You both have great patience. Tell Ellie I miss her already
and will definitely miss the laughs we had. I am wearing my new necklace and
earrings at work today. I love them.... "

"Woooo fuckin yah was that ever fun. I hope everyone had as much
fun as I did. Just enough bad weather to make me promise to myself that I'll
have to go back again, specifically Switzerland. I'm ready for a week long
reunion in Andermatt. We took 31 rolls of film. ... We stopped at so many great
castles I actually got "castled out". We only stopped at about 50% of the
castles between Mainz and Koblenz over the course of two days. It was a close
call but our favorite castle was a smaller one that Leon reccommended,
Rheinstein. It was a real highlight of the trip. I'd reccommend it to future
tour riders to arrive a few days early. Do the circuit from Mainz to Koblenz
and back (avoid the tourist trap of St Goar and castle

"Our memories of our trip are special; and yes, we tell (and
show) everyone who'll listen (look) stories and pics of our trip.... The Alps
trip continues to hold the Number One spot for all of our

"Congratulations Leon, Maus and I are stumped. We had such a
great vacation that we don't know what we are going to next vacation. What on
earth could we do next time that would even equal our trip with Bosenburg. Our
31 rolls of film have been developed, the credit card bill will have to be
wittled down over the next 4 months. But I'd be hard pressed to say it wasn't
Maus L., California, USA
Sunshine is returning and rain suits need to be packed
We are ready to ride, if you are.
"Hello, my fellow riding companions... Thank you all for adding
such excellent company during what I consider an incredible, extraordinary
experience (a little understatement here). But enough with the sentimental
crap........ If you enjoyed the Raclette in Brienz as much as I did, and have
zero options as far as a restaurant that you could satisfy your craving (This
probably excludes Marcus). I ordered off the net, a Raclette oven and Raclette
cheese......gave it a try tonight, and although it is not as good as when in
Schweiz- It was great and gave me a taste of the good life... Anyway, I find it
refreshing to leave the ho-hum, lousy San Diego weather ;) to escape to the
Alps here and there..."
"Son ustedes la pareta ideal es excelante compartos, los espero
en El Salvador."

"Muchas gracias par asta bonita experiencia."
Jose O.B., Guatemala
The Spluegen pass is next.
"I just wanted to give you some feedback on my recent vacation.
First of all the scenery was splendid and everyone was exceptionally polite and
friendly. I started in Munich and then traveled to Berchtesgaden, Zell am See,
Grossglockner, Innsbruck, Wipp and Stubai valleys, Brenner pass (via
Ellboegenstrasse), the Oetz valley, Piller Pass, Switzerland, Bregenz, Fuessen,
and back to Munich. About 1700 km in 5 days. Unfortunately, I got rained on
quite a bit (and some snow, too!), but the roads were excellent. The mountain
switchbacks (spitz kehre) are an absolute joy on a motorcycle. Doing them in
the rain and snow is scary, but my skills have subsequently improved
tremendously as a result.... the Alps are so beautiful that I would like to
return. Maybe even next summer. Thanks for making your services available and I
hope to see you in the future."
Mark J., Texas, USA
Harley t-shirts are appreciated by your friends back
"Guten Morgen Herr Heindel! I wanted to thank you for another
excellent trip, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. However, have returned and since
ridden the Ducati again, I have to say that it's a keeper. You should really
try one sometime. Attached are a few "digital" pictures that are rather large
in file size but better in quality. Note the one titled "cowonhelicopter". Hope
all is well, give my regards to Elly."
P., New Jersey, USA (repeat Bosenberg rider)
Park your bike and do some sight-seeing.
"Just like you said, great roads, poor roads, good weather, bad
weather, we got it all and loved it all... Had a wonderful time on the trip -
you both do a wonderful job. Thanks for the treats everyday!"
Barry and Deb G., Canada
"Thank you so much for the wonderful tour. We look forward to
coming back. Take care of each other. All our best - Your assistant tour

"It was a lovely tour through Austria (Grossglockner), Italy
(Dolomites/Cortina), and eastern Switzerland (Offenpass, Fluelapass).
Highlighted by Intermot and Oktoberfest... We are already contemplating
returning for the Milan motorcycle show in Sept 2001. We would like to continue
using your services for our future company tours in the heart of

Lunch stops are always colorful and taste even better.
Group photos have spectacular backgrounds.
"Just a note to thank you for the great ride thru the Alps. The
memory will be sweet as candy for years to come."

wonderful, hassle free tour. Thanks Again! "
