Reader feedback: Motortour

Re: Tourists need roads too, Reader Feedback, Sept. 2-7, Vol 9, No 33

For a motorcycle tour industry, would Slovakia's road network be adequate? There are many successful companies in Europe and elsewhere who stick to secondary type roads and tour the area, stopping at hotels at night. I know it is big business in the Alps. All that is needed are great views, restaurants, hotels, gas stations, and friendly people.
