Nougat in Schwarzwald
26.05.2015 - 27.05.2015
Two days of Motorcycle heaven - The Black Forest area.
The temperature has not been kind to us but with the Black Forest to play in we had to go out - with Nougat of course.
Let me show you the way he said - I am a bear after all and we know Forests
perhaps we won't go up there - they are really big bears -
The BFR is a very famous road and for good reason, along with the minor roads which lead to small villages and then back onto the BFR- it is a fantastic area to ride around.
We had to stop at Triberg to see the best Bear Cuckoo Clock -
Too many great roads - not enough time - we tried our best to ride every one of them.
Freezing cold we stopped at Titisee for Lunch and to thaw out a bit. Temperature has been 7 to 11 degrees with icy winds.
Lunch was traditional Meat Balls in Paprika flavoured Gravy followed by Black Forest Cake - in the Black Forest you just have to do it.
Titisee is a town full of tourists thanks to its great lake which was formed as an artificial lake after the last Ice Age. It freezes over in winter to become an Ice Skating Rink.
Today we rode more of the fantastic Black Forest Road area from Freudenstadt up to Baden Baden and back.
Morning tea - thaw out stop was the Mummelsee Lookout and Café.
Its only 11am but it must be after 5pm somewhere so we laced our coffees with Cherry Schnapps - as the Germans do to warm up a bit.
Nougat had a little play
Spotted this lovely GS in the Car Park
Got inspected -
more great roads were travelled - and the sun finally came out mid afternoon.
