Motor bike tours in the Dolomites

The Dolomite Mountains, with their characteristic flat-crested, vertically monolithic appearance, is unique to the Alps, and are one of the great biking regions of the Alpine range. There many mountain passes within the same area, interconnected with interesting riding routes. The only thing is, they're a magnet for tourists, who like to drive their camper vans slowly, clogging up the mountain roads for other road users, so avoid high-season if you can. There are some nice towns to stay in, such as St. Vigilio, Corvara, Vipiteno, Arabba or St. Leonhard, putting runs like Jaufenpass and Timmelsjoch well within reach for good day trips.
Running north-south directly between the two main roads to Bolzano is the Penser Joch. This keeps the traffic off and caravans are banned (yipee!). It's quite high at 2214m and the top is just desolate grass.
The northern ramp is narrowish and relatively short (17km). After extensive repairs in 2003 it's become a brilliant set of twisties. The southern, less steep side is 50km of medium to ton-upt sweepers running through a few villages and tunnels (the more frequent the nearer Bolzen you get, where traffic increases, especially south of Samtheim).
