Stelvio

I done this last month for the first time, it was fantastic. The quality of the road ain't exactly the best but the views are breathtaking.

I camped just outside Bormio, south of the Stelvio pass, but whatever you do book in advance because the areas surrounding the pass are packed!!

Stelvio

I stayed in this hotel at the bottom of the Stelvio back in the late 80s and had a great time. You could 'park' your bike in a snow drift outside the bar at the top in July while enjoying the blazing sun...

Grossglockner

Just got back from a quick 3 day ride to do Grossglockner and Campagolo passes. I live in Prague so I am much closer, it only took us 6 hours to get to Zell am See from Pargue taking our time on all the country back roads.

We stayed at a Sports Hotel in Bruck which is at the start of the Grossglockner pass from the North side. There are plenty of cheap hotels in Bruck much cheaper than in Zell Am See. I paid 30 quid for 1 night in a 4 star sports hotel with swimming pool restaurant and ample parking. The room was en suit with colour TV. 
The cost of Grossglockner pass has gone up to 20 euros for a motorbike and I would suggest that you go mid week as the passes are full of mad bikers at the weekend.
suggestions:
1. Ride From Bruck to Lienze over the Grossglockner pass.
2: Ride Lienze to Cortina great roads and sceanery.
3: Ride Cortina to Arabba very twisty and great fun
4: Ride Arabba to Brunico amazing road down in Campaglio
Generaly you will not have many problems with finding accomodation as the area is out of skiing season so not fully booked out. Prices vary between 30-50 quid a night.

have fun!!!
