Liechtenstein 3. Motorbikes, cars and kebab shops in Vaduz, Liechtenstein

DSCF0712 1024

When you think of some of the tiny countries, I think of exotic automobiles and motor racing.   Monaco comes to mind, and maybe San Marino.   Andorra didn’t have many fast cars, but did have some nice wide roads that wind around the mountain scenery.  Liechtenstein has a decent collection of nice motors.

Switzerland is often abbreviated to (CH) or Confederate of Helvetia, where as Liechtenstein is abbreviated to (FL)  = Federation of Liechtenstein.  The cars have an opposite style licence plate with white letters on black, rather than the Swiss black on white.

This American style old school motorcyle place in the Vaduz the capital of this tiny place, is a bit different from what you would expect in a conservative mountainous European nation.

You can see more of Bobber’s garage and shop here 

These guys were happy for me to come in and take pictures.  I think they were too busy working to want to chat.    Later on, I got to chat with locals in the stamp museum.

Next to Bobber’s garage is a kebab shop, run by Turkish guys with Swiss style prices.  Everything here is just as expensive as Switzerland.   The cheapest takeaway meal was around I think 14 CHF.    Towards the bridge border with Buchs, was a Chinese takeaway.

Because of the proximity of Liechtenstein between Switzerland and Austria, and the fact that the Germans, Swiss and Austrians like motorcycling, this looks like a great place to ride into and stop here along the way.
