first of all, thank you! you are awesome. exactly the kind of experienced advice i was hoping to find on this forum
so i will be starting in munich -- picking up a bike from bmw. do you think the k-bike is suitable? i normally ride sportbikes, so i figured it was a good compromise between the RR and something meant to carry gear (and they don't have any new GS's right now).
i don't really have to go to borgo panigale, i just thought it would be a fun ride, with a cool destination. but if i'm having more fun cruising the hilly roads of the alps or the dolomites, i will just hang around at high altitude instead!
speaking of that, you say to dress warmly -- do you mean like perforated leathers (alpinestars in the alps
) and a layer or two under, or should i wear my winter touring gear, like gore-tex held stuff?
