Cool Switzerland - Grimselpass and Furkapass



Quote from a friendly Swiss lawyer: "The night before, I had threatened them the most horrible consequences for uncontrolled speed excesses !!!
So it went ** civil usual from Balsthal past the Thunersee and the Brienzersee to the first highlight of the day: the Grimselpass with the Teufelssee (the Grimselsee is a good piece before)
After a short photo break we went on to the Furkapass and from there to lunch on the Steingletscher.
Music as usual from: https://www.hartwigmedia.com

Thanks for posting; that jogged a few memories - we did that Susten/Furka/Grimsel circuit a few years back, but clockwise, on my old Electraglide. A lovely ride initially, but roadworks held us up at Andermatt & then the weather deserted us over the Grimsel when rain turned to sleet & we were just glad to get back to the hotel at Meiringen (made famous in Sherlock Holmes storylines) safely. Such is a bikers life in the Alps - 4 seasons in one day.

The following year we transited back from a very hot (read way too hot 40c +) Italy on my FJR & the mountains were a welcome respite. We stayed at Oberwald, a fascinating old village (Hotel Alpenhof), before riding the Grimsel on our way north to Baden-Baden via the B500 in excellent conditions all the way.

Always love it!!

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.
