Swiss roads, enough to drive you round the bend!

Found a great video then post it up here. It doesn't have to be about bikes.

Nice vid.

The Swiss do a lot of things right. Having spent 3 months living there this year i can confirm the following.

The roads are good.
The Zurich traffic is not good.
The views are great.
the local (Zurich) beer is fab. i used to go to the turbin hall brewery and buy bottle of beer straight from the factory floor and sit on the loading dock outside in the sun. £1 a bottle..great stuff.

Oh and the local ladies are veryyyyy pretty...when the sun comes out that is.

Great video ok, reminds me our our Europe bike trip this time last year, at times we had 'brake fade' on those tight twisties, learning curve ok.

We want to relocate to Austria from Scotland. Can anyone get us a job please.......??

What a fabulous road - one day ! Imagine something like that in the UK - potholes,spilled diesel and litter everywhere.Never mind, the government might use the £40+ billion they are wanting to spend on this new High speed train malarkey on actually resurfacing some of the roads !!
