Edelweiss 30-Year Celebration | Alps Tour

Motorcycle Touring

30 years of touring with Edelweiss on this earth leave many memories. In 1981 they met the French on the first Edelweiss tour through the Alps to the Cote d’Azur. Then as they rode through Tunisia in 1982 hundreds of Tunisians welcomed them at every stop.

In 1984 they discovered Canada and the USA and as they rode into the Soviet Union in 1988, they were not the spearhead of an attack force but merely a friendly tourist group entering this huge country for the first time on motorcycles after months of hard negotiations with the government. All of these experiences and many more will be present at the 30-year celebration in the Alps, in September 2010.
