Thanks :) Not really, we went immediately from the TV to the Autobahn (took maybe 4 minutes), then some kilometers on country roads and then a little bit in Norderstedt straightforward to a parking lot, where we changed drivers (it was a "double test") and he could drive through all the 30kmh areas, stop signs, and right before left areas, incl. some crosswalks. I had nothing from that sorts, I only had to watch out for speed limits and red lights My driving teacher couldn't believe it, it must have been my lucky day

K-town area

Not really new to the forum. I used to be on when I lived in Turkey. Anyway I just picked up a 2013 F800GS and am looking for fellow adv riders. I am a military dependent living in the k-town area, so I have a lot of time during the week to hit up those roads that are closed to motorcycles on the weekends.

Hi Mike,

thanks - I'm in Green Village in Kabul as civilian member of EUPOL Afghanistan (European Union Police Mission in Afghanistan).

Unfortunately no biking possible here due to security regulations although I really would appreciate to explore the country with a dual sports.

Kind regards from Kabul

Hey Franklin,

I wasn't far from Green Village, at Camp Phoenix, but also at Camp Warehouse for the joint missions and TF work.
I ran into a couple of EUPOL cops, working with the ANP.

Yeah, some of the roads are made for dual sports, like up north to Bagram... haha. Would be no fun riding over an IED...

Stay safe and keep up the good work!

Mike

Can anyone recommend a decent insurance company -- preferably one that might be able to offer service in English?

Thanks.

A very decent one is HUK (www.huk.de), they have a big callcenter, so there should be someone able to help you in english. The HUK is not on the cheaper end, but they offer good service. I myself are insured with HUK, but I get better rates as I work loosely in the insurance industry, so they are not so pricey for me.

Hmm. Thanks...

I've actually been dealing with HUK and they have failed to impress me. I'm so angry with them at the moment that is the reason I'm now shopping around. A good part of the problem I'm having with them is to blame on a language barrier. Very frustrating. I hope I can learn to speak and read more German -- which should help to make every day life easier.
