Motorbikes on Raten Pass, Switzerland

Raten Pass in the Canton of Zug in Switzerland, elevation 1,077m (3,533 feet), connects the villages of Oberageri and Biberbrugg. Raten is popular with tourists and locals alike, being just half an hour from Zurich. Here you can take a scenic horse and sleigh ride through the snowy countryside if you fancy a romantic return to a more leisurely past. However the owners of the vehicles in the picture have something more exciting on their minds, and their mode of transport is altogether more 21st century in style.
