August 24 – September 4, 2014
The Five-Country Tour is our longest running trip, first organized by RoadRUNNER’s founder Christian Neuhauser. He wanted to bring readers back to the places that inspired him and to share with them the awesome experience of riding in the Alps! Today, you can join his sons Manuel and Florian along with experienced motorcycle guide Peter Linschinger on this trip of a lifetime. Along the way you’ll ride stunning alpine passes with breathtaking panoramic views. (Pictures don’t do this area justice!) Your tour starts in Munich, Germany but will take you through deep green valleys, historic villages, and to quaint outdoor cafés. The route is curvy, technical, and frequently steep and narrow. Contact us if you think you’re up to the challenge. We’ll give advice about finding the right trip for you.
Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, and Switzerland await as you experience the true charm of Old World Europe.
All five countries will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime:
- BMW Museum & Walking Tour of Downtown Munich, Germany
- Salzburg, Austria (The home of Mozart)
- Ankogel Glacier
- Dolomite Mountains (Italy)
- Wine Road of Meran
- Stelvio Pass (Italy)
- St. Moritz,(Switzerland)
Dining & Accommodations
Don’t worry about the hotel or restaurant reservations; we’ve got it covered! The staff at RoadRUNNER has over eleven years of experience planning motorcycle trips around the world. While on the Five-Country Tour, you’ll stay at quaint, locally owned three and four-star hotels. You’ll also enjoy some of the best cuisine that Europe has to offer, including dinner at a traditional Bräuhaus. Imagine spending each evening (after a day of great riding) with a delicious meal and a tall brew amongst friends. It really doesn’t get much better than this! Feel free to email us with any questions about lodging or food.
To keep the tour fun and safe, we limit our group size to 12 motorcycles.
We also consult with each rider before registration and take the time to get to know you personally, to ensure you have the best tour experience possible. Year after year, our past participants tell us that the new friendships they’ve made are one of their favorite parts of the trip. The roads in the Alps are hard to top so they must really mean it!
About Your Guides
In his early teens, Florian’s family moved from Austria to the States. He has been actively involved with RoadRUNNER magazine since its inception, and as with any family business, his fingers touch virtually every area. Having grown up in a motorcycle-rich environment, he started riding and traveling early. His preferred types of motorcycles to ride are adventure bikes because of the up-right seating position and the versatility. The Austrian-made KTM is his personal favorite, of course. But as long as a motorcycle gets him around safely and comfortably, he’s not too picky.
With his affinity for technology, Manuel has made his mark at RoadRUNNER by ensuring the website serves as a helpful supplement to the magazine. He is the brother of Florian and son of Christa and Christian Neuhauser who founded RoadRUNNER after moving to the U.S. from Austria. He is an experienced international traveler and motorcyclist. If you want to spot him on the road, look out for a Granny Smith apple green Triumph Speed Triple or a black Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 in the northern New Jersey area.
His first bike was a Honda CB 500 Four. Since then he’s ridden everything from cruisers to sportbikes. Currently he owns a Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder, which he modified himself, and a Suzuki Bandit 1200. More than twenty-five years ago, along with a few friends, he started a motorcycle club—the SAMTC (Austrian AAA). He is a police officer during the day.
