On the road with Danny Schneider, former motocross driver and one of the world's best vintage motorcycle manufacturers.
Crossing Switzerland by motorcycle: In the next few months I'll be revealing my personal favorites as well as insider tips about the motorcycle routes in Switzerland as well as giving tips on safety.
I've already ridden my motorcycle all over the world, but Switzerland is and remains the most attractive country for me to ride a motorcycle. The various passes, routes crossing the countryside and alongside lakes, nature, and the good quality of the roads turn every trip into an experience.
As I live in Bern, the short route over the Gurnigel is, for me, the most attractive pass in the region. It's also worth getting my motorbike out of the garage after work to ride over the pass. It's just 15 minutes from the capital city and provides bikers with very good training in negotiating steep bends, complemented by super views and a fine cheese platter on top of the pass (about 45 minutes from Bern). Even on these short trips, it is important to check the motorbike properly, just as you should before every ride, in order to guarantee safety. And if something does happen, I have all-round protection with AXA's motorcycle insurance.
