Registration starts on Feb 1st, so I`ll get our 3 names in early.
It`s 5 euros per night per person, though I have no idea what the cost will be for your mobile stately home.
Any one else up for this?

.............Any one else up for this?.........

I'd love to, but I'm going over to another meet in Alsace a few weeks later. Geoff did ask me, but the timing's not good for me...maybe next year.

I don't think we have a location yet, but a Frenchman from that area agreed to hold next years Quota Treffen there on 7/8/9 July.
We have an annual rally, alternating North or South of the Alps, this year was the Spanish Pyrenees, last year was Sweden, the one before, Croatia....etc.
All good fun.

.........Guzzi only?.........
Originally the Treffen was for Quotas and off road Guzzi's, then the Stelvio came out and they started to replace the Quota. But production of the Stelvio has now ceased, due to non compliance of Euro 4.
So this year, as we were away for a few weeks, I took my old Camper with DRnotsoBIG on the back and used that for the Treffen weekend.
There was some dissent, but it came into it's own on the Saturday ride up in the mountains on gravel roads. One Italian said that I had the best bike :tup: for where we were. One Quota came off the road and went down a bank into trees :oops: and two Stelvio's went over with some damage :roll: .
Lots of gaffer tape (hostage tape to Colum) and cable ties patched them up.
Next year we'll go on the Quota as we have done in previous years, book a room for the Treffen and do B&B's enroute.
