Ouch

I was on a very steep down hill.... It was a bit muddy ... I did lose control for a sec but got it back and thought the hill was over....

And the,, there it was... a HUMP... since i was not holding any breaks, I found myself airborne.... heading straight into the trees...

Split second and the OOOUUUUCCCCHHHH.. amazing pain.....

When I finally landed, I was on my back and by bike was like 50 feet away

No it wasn't my bimmer, and yes I'm still in one piece. But I had a hell of an accident while mountain biking in France... Lots of cuts and bruises, and nagging pain on my side, but I'll live...

At least it wasn't in my bimmer.. too bad the bike didn't have DTC

Sorry I was not posting any updates .. I will start posting now

Day one

After getting out of Oktoberfest I started heading to my next destination.. Divonne, France. A very nice city on the french-swiss boarder with a casino for the rich...

The Germans really know how to drive.. The autobahn drive is amazing, this is where I hit the 135MPH twice... The car drives like a dream, and at max speed it is still very stable, quite and responsive...

The car gives amazing feedback and it responds to the slightest input.. Which sometimes can be tricky it you are not 100% focused on driving...

The car begs to be pushed hard! Only once, by mistake, sis I push the pedal beyond the kickback point and BAM she just wen on... almost redlining but I backed off right away... But man there is a beast under that hood

Day one.. Part 2

I was frustrated that I'm driving on mostly a straight free way.. so by the time I reached the Swiss boarder (with my Swiss visa that no one even bothered to check) I remembered a couple of advises I had.. Drive to Lucran and Set the Navi to avoid toll roads..

BIG MISTAKE.. Though Lucran is nice, the drive isn't what I was looking for ... I wasted too much time to get there and then to keep going to my destination (near Geneva)

If you are not going to Lucrane, don't go there just for the drive...

I reached Divonne, France around 10:30PM.. Very long day... The hotel that my friend was staying in was just amazing.. I started this post and then slept, very late, 2AM.. Another big mistake, though I'm an insomniac... but that will have ripple effect through the rest of the trip

Day 2

Started the day ate 8:30.. hardly enough sleep... very quick breakfast and we are out for a nice activity.. A sports adventure in the French Alps...

And amazing twisty and demanding road taken by the bus

The adventure was 2 parts... Part 1 is composed of 6 "workshops" each workshop has a variety of rope climbing, bridge crossing, rope swing.. all between trees that are 12 to 22 meters high.. Fully secured with a harness and double ropes and stuff... each "workshop" ends with a rope "glide" to the ground.. higher, longer and faster each time.. the last glide was 220 meters long from a 24 meter high platform to the ground.. 20 amazing seconds, you do the math...

This was GREAT time.. I would highly recommend it to any one how likes hikes in the woods and a little sporty activities with some thrill.. PM me for details if you want....

Thumbs up The Fun

After the first half of the day the offered a ride back on the bus to the hotel for those who had enough.. I didn't had enough at that point, i now wish I did, BUT... I asked if I can go back again anyway and come back real quick in my car.. The said I will be late since its a 20 mins drive...

Done it in 15

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING drive... I have it all on video which I will post when I'm back in the US... the car is on damn rails...

DSC is awesome... Its like having a guardian angel by each of the back wheels who brings them back where they should be.. DSC engaged like 3 times on turns of 120 to 180 degrees.. and you can really feel it.

Also passing on this 2 lane, 2 way and steep uphill road was so much fun

I was so happy I went back to take this road.

I know its shalow

So I got all the way up the mountain back the the adventure place.. very dramatic entrance.. fast turn on gravel.. a very limited sway and DSC it there to save the day

Now.. I know most of you will say the following is me being shallow... bite me

Once I parked the car and got out, every one in the group was impressed, congratulated me on the beautiful car and just became by best friend... So that is what it feels to have a bimmer I can't deny that those were some very happy moments ..

But anyway... 15 mins later and I was on my back after the bike crash.. My friend said its better you than the car ...

Have I posted any interior pics?

End of day 2

The bike crash blew away our time plan.. I went back to the hotel and spent 2 hours in the spa just to ease the pain all over my body... It was good ... Spent 2 more hours looking for a pharmacy and then good food so I can take my pain killers...

So, 4 hours delay, about $100 for a tank of gas, 2 pills and off we go in our way to Venice through Milan... Had to pull few more 135s.. but that is another story

Cool Driving in Italy

Impressions about driving in Italy:

- Italians and a little crazy and no where near Germans... But hey, I'm from Egypt, crazy-driver is my middle name

- What's up with the damn toll ! every damn 50 miles I have to fork euros out... in 36 hours we did Geneva -> Milan -> Venice -> Milan -> Genoa -> Nice... That cost $110 euros in the damn toll.. I if you will drive in Italy research the TelePass, I sure will next time...

- The highest Octane in Italy was 95 ! In I was told in the ED center that in Europe I should put 98 at least.. In Swiss I put a 100 octane

- Beaming the high lights on a slow @ hole changing lanes to the left while going 1 mph faster than the next guy.. while I'm coming from behind at 120MPH doesn't work in Italy

- Didn't see any exotic cars may be I was too fast for them.

- I got picked up by the radar camera twice I think.. didn't really care with my temp plates... However, was told later by Italian friend that some of those cameras and linked with the toll station, and I can be fined at the toll station.. that was close

- Putting gas in Italy with a credit card is very hard since the don't take major cards in most stations.. At nigh, especially in weekends its near impossible.. Since we only had a 200 and a 500 Euro bills we were unable to even fill up with cash since the machine takes up to a 50 euro bill... keep euros handy for filling up... Navi is great in finding gas stations.. thanks again bee

Lichthuppen (flash of high beams) is illegal in Germany, not sure re Italy.

No more room for you !

So with all the delays with the bike and then with finding cash and a gas station we arrived in Venice at 2:00 AM... I picked up a friend in Milan airport with 2.5 hours delay and another friend in Venice with 2 hours delay.. They were quite angry, but hey.. I HAD A FREAK'EN ACCEDENT shut them up

Got up to 135MPH quite a few times and took most of the way ate 110 to 120.. This will be such a problem when I get back to the US since my minimum speed now is 100MPH

Got to the hotel around 2 AM to be greeted by: You are too late, no more room for you and yes I called 3 times to confirm late check in...


I found out that I have been Americanized and I started with that I'm the customer and you can't screw me up like this attitude with the Italian dude wich really pissed him off... Luckily, my Egyptian friends jump in and dealt with him in the mediterranean way man have I changed in 5 years... the guy ended up calling other hotels for us while saying that every single room in the city is taken.. after so many tries he sent us off to another hotel

Navi rocks.. no need for address.. Just city name, go to information on destiantion, go to hotels and a list pops up.. I'm staying in the ****tiest of holes, and those are included in the list again and anagin, thanks bee

Got to the second hotel at 2:30... Opps, I made a mistake, the room is actually occupied.. the gay said.. BUT I already called another hotel and they have 2 rooms for you....

Third time worked.. we went to bet after 3:00... If you are following up since before wheels off you can tell by now that I had so far total 15 hours of sleep in 5 days... even I can't take that anymore.... and my autopilot, who comes up in the US, doesn't work in Europe nor on high speeds

You should have been careful. The speed limit in Italy is 135 kph (85 MPH). If the Polizia Stradale would have stopped you the fine is in excess of 400 euros. Yes, that is correct and like 8 points on your european driver's license. if you had one. I did not know that either until I came back to the states. I drove all over northern Italy at 110 MPH. Just hope your picture was not taken and BMW does not backcharge for the fines it paid on your temp tag.

Navi is great in finding gas stations.. thanks again bee
Never had a problem with them accepting my AMEX but then I always filled up on the Autostrada.

Split second and the OOOUUUUCCCCHHHH.. amazing pain.....

When I finally landed, I was on my back and by bike was like 50 feet away

No it wasn't my bimmer, and yes I'm still in one piece. But I had a hell of an accident while mountain biking in France... Lots of cuts and bruises, and nagging pain on my side, but I'll live...

At least it wasn't in my bimmer.. too bad the bike didn't have DTC

Sorry I was not posting any updates .. I will start posting now
What kind of digital camera do you have? The quality is excellent.

My pictures always come out a bit blurry.

Cool hello from Nice

Hi Everyone

I am in a cyber cafe trying to post more... BUT the french keyboard has some keys in different locations... too annoying, I cant do this...


Dropping off my car in 4 hours Then fly to Paris and the next morning to Cairo

I wll continue the write up about Venice; Genoa and the French Rivera from Ciaro on a normal keyboard and on free broadband internet connection....

Stay tuned....

I will also post some write up and photos fro, Cairo and Alexandria...

I am supposed to go hours back riding at sunset under the pyramids... but my back still hurts too much and I believe that my Karma balance is in the red already... Your donations are welcomed

I think we all now know why they did not want to give him a visa, I think the consul could see that there would be a driving maniac on the loose running all over Europe.
