nice to hear you're planing on traveling! I live in Switzerland and want
to ask why you're missing out on the stelvio pass? you're passing Davos,
and by going south to Italy you can ride the Ofen-Pass and then head
down into Italy to drive the Stelvio Pass; both are spectacular. You
then could turn back or head over the Reschenpass (Racines) directly to
Innsbruck. Okay, for you the other way round: Innsbruck, Brenner,
Reschenpass, Stelvio pass, Ofenpass, Davos. Definitely worth it, the
nicest big passes in the Swiss/Austrian alps. The route you're taking
might be more direct and faster, but definitely boring as hell as those
straight main roads were not built for having fun. Same applies for the
rest of the route through the south-western part of Switzerland you
take: not that spectacular, but guess you want to cover as much ground
as possible in a day!
sadly I live in Zurich and don't know if my old Moto Guzzi V from 1934 will
make it up and down those passes, so I guess I won't be able to join you
for your ride through Switzerland. But depending on where you pass
Switzerland I might decide otherwise. Anyway: if you need further help
and tips for Switzerland: I'd be glad to help!
all the best to you guys!
