ALPS EXTREME DATE: AUGUST 8-15, 2012!
Please Note: I've negotiated discount rates for Alps Extreme Edeweiss Bike Travel Tour-August 8-15, 2012. Please come ride the Alps with AZ Beemers.
We already have 10 participants who have sent in their $500 deposits to EBT.
This provided us with a 5% discount, if we get 12 riders we receive 8% off.
For example, if you rent a BMW K1600 GT/GTL and share a room, you will get $237 off of your tour price. That will pay for your gasoline, or your beer!

ATTENTION: If you do not have a fax machine, just get your mailing address to Don Stanley, and I will mail you a Booking Form ASAP.
DEADLINES: We hope to have this Alps Extreme Tour to ourselves - MOA and AZ Beemers Forum, I want to see two things: 1) Please give us a firm commitment you are going by Christmas, either by posting up here, calling or e-mailing. 2) We're firmly requesting that you get your $500 deposit in to Tracy of Edelweiss Bike Tours/Tri Community Travel by President's Day.
I mentioned you must be in Munich, Germany by Noon on the Arrival Day, this is important because we must commute to the Village of Erding (30 kilometers Northeast of Munich) by 3pm on Arrival Day to pick up our bikes and receive orientation!
However, I strongly recommend you plan on spending additional time in Europe either before, or after, or both before and after our 8 day Motorcycle Vacation. For example, I actually am flying into Berlin with My Girlfriend Donna. Donna and I'll sightsee Berlin for four days; we'll then travel on to Munich on the High Speed ICE Express Train. Donna will fly home to Phoenix on the morning of Arrival Day and I will take the commuter train to Erding to meet up with you.
AIRFARE: Right now airfare is just under $1,500 roundtrip to Germany, I am going to use Priceline.com to attempt to get the best pricing possible; I will book our flights by Easter, no later than that.
OUR MAP: I highly recommend that you purchase a copy of The Alps by freytag & berndt I bought mine from Wide World of Maps in Mesa, Arizona for $15.95, but you can get them much cheaper at Amazon.com Whenever we discuss routing's, this map will be the one with coordinate points. The ISBN Number of this map is 978-3-7079-0425-3
PRICING: Using a typical AZ Beemers Forum Alps Riding Couple such as Mr. and Mrs. Dusseldorf, here is what they would pay if they were riding two up on a BMW F800GS and sharing a room together. They are considered a Twin, Duo and Hans and Ingrid would each be paying $2,080: For a total of $4,160. But, if we get at least 10 participants they would be paying 5% less: For a total of $3,952.
