June 06, 1996 - Timmelsjochstrasse, near Sölden, Austria.
This is the view leading to the Timmelsjochstrasse toll both (ATS 50). This is a Thursday, so you would think that everybody is at work. Rule number one: find out when the Germans have their national holidays. They seem to have a lot of them. My relatives in Germany can't believe that companies start us off with 2, maybe 3 weeks of vacation in North America and that it takes about 20 years to get 5. They start off with 5 weeks. The wait by the way was very short and the lineup behind us long. I think that I saw more bikes at this one location than I see back home all summer.
