Motorcyclists heaven

Summer on the Penser Joch / Passo Pennes

Motorcyclists heaven ( It's not a joke )

The mountain roads are very popular by the motorcyclists.
(here the road to the Penser Joch)

I found this video this video, this video and this video, but there are many more...


  1. The title is just perfect! :-)

  2. Zounds! I can imagine it would be great fun to ride on those winding road through the mountains. I'm curious as to how many bikers go flying off into the stratosphere on the curves? I don't see very many Harley's here; wonder why?

    1. On your first question: in South Tyrol - about one per day :-(

      On your second question: The Harley's are to "slow" for these roads :-)
      No, that isn't it, there are also Harley's...

  3. That's an amazing ride Karl, it would be worth it for the view. It's so beautiful but I don't think I could do it ..heights and all that :)

  4. I do not know much about motorcycles, but this is really a heaven for bikers!

  5. I would love to have my motorcycle to ride on these beautiful roads. Note that three of the videos you included were from BMW riders, a perfect bike for this ride.

  6. It is a beautiful place, Karl. I can see why the bikers love it there. But, I would hate to be out on that road when many bikers came roaring past. The noise would scare me senseless!

  7. Yikes! Thanks for the videos, Karl! That first one set me teeth on edge and my heart to racing! I love to ride, although haven't had a motorcycle for many years, but I would not be able to ride these mountains. Pretty impressive!

  8. AMAZING. They are so brave and fierce.
    Really beautiful wievs.
