DAYRIDE 2017_02

"1st Winter Ride 2017"

You have some spare time? Why don´t you go for a ride and explore your surrounding?

That is my motto. Austria is offering so many interesting places for riding a motorcycle adventurous. Always when being out with Чернотa, I try to find new, for me unknown tracks and places. Closely around Austria's capitol Vienna it´s hard to find such small adventures, but with a whole day of time, I am able to ride far enough to find easily more tracks and gravel as I can ride within a day. This day ride report is a good example, what is possible with just a day of riding time ... .

As you can see on this map, this day was for exploring. I tried to find new tracks in the south of lower Austria. Which resulted in 400km or 250mi pure dual-sport-riding-fun!

Just in the moment when  the sun came up, Чернотa and I started our day-ride.

Along some well known biker routes we rode on from Vienna in direction south-west,  there...

in the hills, it was still cold and morning frost was still visible on the meadows. Our first stop this day ...

was the "Hohe Wand", which is a common excursion destination from Viennese people. The view ...

from up there was ...

excellent. But our focus this day has been the search of remote tracks. That is why we ...

rode further on through foggy valleys until ...

we reached  the entrance to the exciting stuff. (Picture: "Seems legit! Didn´t it???) ^^

Riding along this "autumnal" track, just around the next corner, ...

this great snapshot of a flying airplane was taken. Up there in the pre-alpine region in lower Austria ...

the view was ...

a real eye opener. Further on along some ...

easy to ride ...

gravel tracks, at the search for further unknown routes ...

Чернотa and I passed this little chapel, a ...

small water-power-plant, ...

and a hunters hut.

In the distance the lone standing and far visible mountain "Ötscher" showed us his silhouette.

Along fresh built wood worker trails ...

we came to the first deadlock. But a detour was quickly found. We wen´t one further westward  ...

to the above mentioned mountain "Ötscher".

On his west side, there is a remote street, which offers nice ...

views. There are also ...

great paths everywhere in the woods.

It seemed that there was a storm a few days before. I really like to ...

take the gravel streets, which are often leading along the paved streets, which in turn ...

I also really enjoy. But that is OK. That´s why I ride with Чернотa a dual-sport-motorcycle. It´s the best compromise ...

for the small and big adventures out there. Further on along through Lower Austria's forest paths ...

was the plan. Sometimes I have to stop due to the ...

beauty which was offered. Чернотa and I passed ...

the "Lake Hubertus" and found in the woods in the close proximity ...

this interesting wood working vehicle. The muffler on the top, the finished back tires and a real door knob as door handle ... . LOL, no more to say.

On the late afternoon ...

we rode back nearly the same way ...

which we came from in the morning. In the south of Vienna ...

the sugar beet harvest was ongoing. I had to stop there for making this last picture after a perfect day of riding.
