Welcome to Adv forum. I was just down your way last month spent the night at a hotel on the Titisee rained like hell on the way home! Great time in the Black Forest for all. Can't wait to get back down on my new GS I just picked up today had to trade the Harley in the bike not made for euro roads!

Thanks atomicalex for your offer. Infact, I am in contact with a adv member in Munich, who is helping me out with Karl Maier.

Thanks

Concur. Wiesbaden is a great little city. I lived in Eltville-Rauenthal my first year and half in Germany.

Hello and welcome. It is my experience that even the lowest life forms are allowed to join. I am proof of that.

I hope to be riding Austria soon. I did drive there in June for the Erzberg Rodeo and almost drowned...in the water and the beer.

Head north, there's plenty beautiful roads in the 'Holsteinische Schweiz' - and you can take a refreshing bath in the Baltic!

I will! I only saw some roads around Hamburg with my driving teacher and maybe one or two curves that would classify for one but I will get a bike later this or early next month and I'll have my vacation then, how convenient :) So I'll have plenty of time to do some excursions :)

I'm not quite sure yet since I have to test drive them, to see what works and what not. But I have my eyes on either a BMW F800R or a Honda CBF600s, or something else...
I think the BMW would be more fun, but is also more expensive. But since I want to use the bike on a daily basis and for vacation, I think the CBF would be a closer fit (for the vacation part), if I want to get the BMW touring ready, I think I have to put more money in the BMW.... I saw some Hondas for around 5 to 6k€ including panniers and heated grips, that would be nearly half the price of a BMW with the same configuration...
Another big plus for the Honda would be, that I could pay it in cash and not have to finance half of it...

Edit: Test went easy, had a relaxed auditor and an easy ride, just 20 min Autobahn and 10 min on country roads :)

If riding to Austria, you can leave a PM if i have the time at that point maybe we can meet up for some ride-together.

Yea Erzberg, someday i will do that with my Transalp!
