A few years back three mates and I ran down to Dijon in one hit from Essex and a long weekend around the Alp's, TBH it was a slap even from here but needs must and all that but it was a fantastic four days. We just stayed in a budget hotel in Dijon and rode around from there so we had an hour or so ride before getting into the Alp's, never been into the camping thing so can't help on that but I'm sure there will be some help on that along shortly.

Be aware that the Swiss Police are very hot on speeding and that the national speed limits on normal roads is only 80kph. They aren't so much anti biker, rather anti motorist full stop. The fines are frightening and appear to be means tested. Play down your occupation if you do get caught.

In recent years they have been stopping bikes wholesale and doing checks for things like tyres. The going rate for a defective tyre was €500,-.

In excess of €1000,- plus an instant ban for speeding is common place.

Personaly I only go in to Switzerland if I have to but many others have uneventful trips year after year. It is just some don't. Have fun :)
