Glad to see that you enjoyed your trip. It's definitely a treat to read. (I may be the only one who'd be interested to hear more about the days before you rented the bike, though .... )

I canít read the words but the message is clear.
The sign is a warning about the guard rails which are known to cause heavy injuries to bikers, up to decapitation. So they're proposing an extra -15kph as a safety. Sometimes local bike clubs have added extra padding to the pillars, but here they just put the sign.
