We would be free to go wherever we wanted—just show up at the designated hotel each night or call one of the guides. Or just bring your bike back in 10 days.

At 9 a.m. the next morning we headed southwest toward St. Moritz. I had a new BMW F 800 GS Adventure test bike, which seemed about perfect: tall, well-damped suspension, strong brakes, smooth power, a comfortable seat and a proper sit-up riding stance. As we sliced over the Stelvio Pass, my fear of being stuck in the middle of a slower group evaporated.
