Part 2 of 3

"Pack arrived last week and we tried to sort through a myriad of brochures... We feel we could easily stay in Alsace for weeks. Mostly these brochures confirmed and renewed excitement for our plans. Very useful maps. They also urged us to make sure we hit some castles that were before only possibilities. I strongly considered some of the bike hotels, may still use the one in the Swiss Alps. Good stuff Leon..."

Cat and Maus M., California, USA (repeat Bosenberg riders)

"The BMW F 800 S is perfect. I should opt for the standard rate because some days I will only ride a very small amount of miles. Thank you for being honest!"

Drew R., New Hampshire, USA

"Well that trip was a success. Next time I'll do more time in Switzerland... the on bike video came out AWESOME. The gopro camera is THE answer after having tried unsuccessfully with 4 different other video cameras. I wish I'd shot more now that I see how well it did... You were a great help Leon in making this the trip of a lifetime..."

"... that is great news. Thank you so much. People have told me that you are a great company to work with and that is what I am discovering. Thanks for the suggestion re the Rhine River run. It sounds very exciting. Especially with the forecast of good weather. I'm also pleased to hear that the height of the bike will be lower. I was concerned that the bike might be too high for me! So, many thanks."
