I enjoyed looking at those, after all, some are machines you don't see here in the US at all, unless at some type of show or meet. Nothing spectacular, but interesting none the less.  Thumbsup

That phone booth is palatial.  Someone would be living in that if it were here.  


What's a phone booth?

Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world.

Finding one is getting to be harder and harder - that goes for both superheros and phone booths.

It's Switzerland. Is there crime in Switzerland? Smile

(It seems that the British love affair with the top box continues in Switzerland too. Every time I walk around London and find a bike park, 70%+ of the bikes have said top box)


When I was riding in Italy I asked about that and was told that side cases are too wide for lane splitting. And they do a lot of lane splitting in Europe.

I was hoping you didn't mean a bike! You being bikeless in Europe does not compute. Confused

I got the jacket, and it was supposed to say "Lone Wolf", but they made a mistake and put "One Wolf" on it instead.

Here's something to muse over: the local BMW's "used bike" listings.

Yup
I've been doing it with bikes with luggage from Goldwings to Duc St4s

The key being the handlebars being the widest part of the bike.

Some BMWs have the saddlebags as the widest part. That can make things a little interesting.

Bet they don't have a Swiss Army Knife KLR.


They don't.  There is a reason Suisse is so pretty.  They have outlawed rolling eye sores.
