    Now look what I found!



    Not quite as good as the theme song, but still: "My German motorcycle" :cool::cool::cool:

    Lund? Corb Lund...?
    Ah yes! The guy behind...



    ...the number one hit "Truck got stuck".


    And this leads us directly to this important issue:

    Talk about being stuck!
    How is this possible? Does not people know their own best?



    Yes, this was a yet another shameless bump of this thread

    Remember this picture?

    The 2011 IBA Ireland TT1000 at IoM was the at that date most international IBA event ever held.

    The ABR will surpass that, for sure.
    ...so, bring your flag!


    We will try and duplicate this picture, no, multiplicate it!

    So, again - make sure you bring the flag of your country. Make it resonably sized, and add a smile - that's all that is needed to show the world who we are.

    Will the bonus locations be given out in a format suitable for Autoroute ?

    .gpx should do, right?

    I don't know Robert. That was why I asked the question.

    I saw the newsletter, read it and basically had no idea what file works for what program but if you say "gpx" works for autoroute then that's fine

    autoroute eats gpx, no worry.
     
  13. Moin,
    hab da mal nee frage.
    Kommen wir bei der Alpenbutt auch in Gegenden in Frankreich in denen mann die neue Umweltplakete braucht.
    dann könnte man die Ja schon mal besorgen.

    Gruß

    Das ist möglich, das ist die freie Entscheidung jedes Fahrers. Aber möglich ist es.

    Wenn Ihr aber durch Paris kommt, hab Ihr Euch grob verfahren. ;)

    Habe gerade schon mal Topcase und Tankrucksack gepackt. Wann geht's denn endlich los?
    Hm, ich glaube, ich nehme die Wurstbrote noch mal raus.

    No, time for a song again!



    I can never hear this tune on the radio, without seeing these scenes in my mind again.


    So, how does this connect to the ABR?
    Hey! It's the Alps, remember?
    Eastern Schweitz, close to Lichtenstein actually.

    I'm sure there will be a pretty fat bonus for getting off the bike and do a re-enactment of Corliss' flight.
    What can possibly go wrong..?

    "Ten seconds"

    Actually, there was a potential BP location just around the corner, but I could not verify it as the both attempts were stopped by snow on the road...

    Na, jungs...?

    Countdown to the rally
    2 Weeks
    5 Days
    18 Hours

    (Static snippet from the active countdown here: http://www.alpenbutt.com/philosophy/
    Don't blame me if you miss the start, okay...? )

    I am think of changing my tires before the start, somewere close to Miesbach.
    Well, or on the way down from Sweden - Raum München is okay.

    Any suggestions on who to contact? Do we have some friends in Bayern we want to support?
    Someone in here who actually is in the business already?
