Pass roads usually have two faces; a steep side with tight switchbacks and a more gentle slope that allows a rider to maintain more speed through the turns. The tight switchbacks get the drama prize, but as riders, we like the speedier possibilities on the more relaxed turns. Some of the switchback turns are so tight, that, even on the nimble K 1600, we needed to slow to a walking speed to maintain lane position. Our favorite passes on this trip included: Pourdoi, Niger, Stella, Campolongo Pass, and Gardena Pass. On weekends, the tiny roads are often flooded with tour busses, bicycle riders and families in cars, so we prefer to ride early in the morning and hike or relax on the weekend afternoons.
