Tony, the Vignette is just for the motorways and for a pop in visit, I doubt you would be using them.
However I suppose it is possible.
I didn't know a Vignette was required for a Motorcycle, never really thought about it, but have now, and it is a requirement

edit
apparently it needs to be fixed permanent stuck to the paint work! I would make something or buy a motorcycle bolt on tax disc holder and stick it to that, otherwise the paintwork would be damaged!

I arrived in Switzerland by Dinghy once when I rowed across Lake Laguna from Italy. The Swiss are a bit anal when it comes to breaking the law and I wondered if I should have had one stuck on me boat.

Nah you wont need one for the Rhine falls, its just over the border. Amazing place. If your motorhome is under 3.5t you wont need one for that either just going there and you can park up overnight there.

We stuck the Vigneetey to the windscreen on our pan European Hondas.

1st time we visited we knew FA (Not a lotty) about the bloody thing and got stopped about 1km from the Italian border going over the Brenner(motorway) pass. (90 euro each that cost us each 3 bikes that time..... We pleaded every case and reason and the police would not let us stop at the services, which we could see, to buy them.

Barstewards...

I invited them to Scotland to experience some decent hospitality but they never came.
