Hi all, I'm new to this forum and for my sins, live in England in the UK. My main enjoyment in my life is packing my bike up and going touring. When you guys decide to make a road trip, what do you head for. Is it a fantastic bit of road, a particular place to see or do you just head out and see where you end up. When I start looking into a road trip I scour Youtube looking for any roads that catch my eye. Then I'll search for a campsite that isn't too far away. Once I've found the road and base I look to see whats around that would interest the wife (gotta keep 'em happy). When it's all in place I then look at the cost and try to figure out how I'm paying for it. I'm fortunate enough to live within riding distance of Europe, which has some of the best biking roads in the world. I was supposed to be going to Austria last year but had to cancel because I broke a leg. This year the trip is on for August. Probably the most famous road in Europe is the Stelvio Pass but for this road trip I've decided on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. Instead of camping on this trip we'll be staying in hotels, it'll be a 15 night trip, covering over 3,000 miles (5,000km) and will cost me about £2k english money, about 4k in your Aussie dollars.
