Sure it's "North America" but there are some beautiful roads and beautiful scenery in Baja Mexico. Valle De Guadalupe is the Napa/Sonoma of Mexico, really nice wine country. Until I went myself, I never would of known!

Saw the same and thought the same.

I've been to Switzerland before, but was only there for a few hours. Glad I didn't get pinched, $4k for speeding is abhorrent.

Yikes! Luckily the Alps span a few other countries that are more lax in speed enforcement.

Most of us speak English better than we speak Welsh. And the ubiquitous speed cameras in Wales have 0-tolerance, unlike their English counterparts.

There are awesome roads in South Wales though. Awesome narrow roads.

https://www.edelweissbike.com/

http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/lin...ated_sort=DESC

http://thefrenchride.com/en/motorcyc...france-europe/

https://en.universalriders.com/motor...rs/lyon-cannes

https://www.highbike-paznaun.com/eng...r-suggestions/

https://www.ayresadventures.com/


I am still looking at reviews of the tour companies, hope some of the links will help you.

Tuono Joice & I swear by Edelweiss [haven't tried any other tour cos] -
the key words are: Alps & Pyrenees [Austria/Germany/Italy/France/Spain] are all wunnerful

Sw'land is infamous for their achingly lo speed limits & many cameras - no go

UK was lotsa fun, too - especially mid-to-north areas

I traveled thu Romania a few years ago, and the entire time going thru the mountains outside of Sibiu where they have the Red Bull Romainiacs I just kept thinking I gotta come back on 2 wheels.
