Robert, it is like you said. That happens only if we speak "Bayrisch"
Guys, I just like to give you a statement about the tragedy that came over our Club just to avoid speculations. Many things you will find in the Internet about that accident were just wrongly stated.
Our club, the Motorcycle touring Club Europe was founded in 2005. We do three Meetings over the year around Europe with daily ride outs. We never had an accident before. All our riders are very experienced and tour since a long time all around Europe.
The acident happend during our End of Season Meeting in the Trentino area, Northern Italy.
The Meeting hasn`t started very well since one of our guys who rode a GW Trike crashed into a stonewall beside the road. His kneecap was deplaced and he was transported into a hospital close to Roveretto - around 150 kilometers away from the hotel where our group had his lodging.
On the third day when we had our Meeting, a group of 3 bikes (two with pillions) visited our friend in the hospital. All of them were british Members.
On the way back to the hotel they were on a dual carrigeway that ended up in a single lane road. they have mistaken in their thoughts because they still thought they were on a dual carrigeway. Two of them with the pillions crashed into a truck head on. 3 friends were killed and one lady was seriously injured and airlifted to the hospital of Trento. Until now we can say that she will have a full recovery.
The rider on the third bike realised their mistake but he couldn`t do anything because he was to far behind.
Many motorists claimed this road section before due to the bad road signs..................
This accident did not happen due to the reason that our friends were birtish bikers and were on the wrong side of the road because they were british!!!!!
This was the darkest moment I ever had in my personal life and of course this was the darkest moment we ever had in our Club life. It was a hard time for our Club and we are looking forward for the brighter days on the bikes again.
