That is a mountain road that's hard to beat. GRiSO in its element. Jesus, why am I sitting here at a desk?! Oh yeah, because it pays for the GRiSO's care and feeding. Carry on.

Pretty cool video, not much margin for error sharing that road with cars, bicycles and pedestrians. Beautiful scenery though.

Beautiful! Have ridden Susten and many others. Some of the best riding you'll ever do.

Well that was a beautiful piece of music to sway and dance to while I sank another beer.
Rule No.1 Tunnels must always be done at 8,000 RPM
Rule No.2 Do these rides on a week day when the furquen wannabe Tour de Frogs are at work.
Rule No.3 Please take me with you, next time. Please!

That's one I watch frequently when my annoying jockette wife queen tells me I need to hit the treadmill again in our "GITMO room."  Embarassed

That is a great road.  I have only done the Splugen on a Guzzi, but several others in a cage.  Have never understood why folks extoll the virtues of, e.g., the Stelvio, as I don't find switchbacks on two wheels to be charming.  Twists and turns and grand curves as on the Susten are great but one 180 after another, IMO, sucks sulfurous eggs.  No

As for bicycles, I love 'em.  Back when I had a physique Rolling Eyes in a universe far away, I rode with an amateur club in Italy -- Veloce Club Thiene.  What a grand time that was, riding where folks respected and indulged individual cyclists and even pelotons.

Some asshat tried -- I still think on purpose -- tried to run me off the road in rural Georgia in the mid-80's Evil or Very Mad  and I hung up my cleats that day.  Sad.  Sad

Oh, well. the vid was great.  When Kathi sentences me to GITMO time, I search y/t for "motorcycle tour europe" and filter for "long" and newer.  checking first, of course, for GRiSO, which is how I first saw this one.

Hmmmmm.  I think I'll have a donut for breakfast.  pig

Done the Swiss passes a good few times in the past, in the days before most bikes were fuel injected. Carbs don't work well at all at those altitudes ! Sad

You had to set up those carbs accordingly. More air needed...
