What license exactly?
A learners permit (like "bf17" in Germany) isn't covered by the 6 month period.

I'd ask "Volker Kalus" from the Führerscheinstelle Ludwigshafen. He is a real professional in this topic.

In N. Germany

There's an English & German speaking Ex-pat in the Kiel area in case anyone is ever needing a resource around the area.

Hey, our thread is going to get lost. No one has been here for a month. I've been in Stuttgart for 7 months and I still don't have a bike. I have 6 of them in Colorado. My bad, work, work, work. I don't take holidays like the Germans.

I moved to Berlin 6 months ago. Sold my WR250X and my DR650 before leaving Canada. Bought a 990 Super Duke when I got here, but I've since realized it's the wrong bike for the city. Way too much power to have between your legs with so many radar cameras around. It would be awesome for weekend rides, but I like to ride every day, even if it's just to zip to the bakery for a loaf of bread.

I'm thinking of something a little milder, more urban friendly, but not too wimpy. Considering a Husky TR650, maybe the KTM 690 Enduro or even the smaller Duke.

I need to explore more than just the downtown area.

And another people think it's a .com forum and they may post regardless of their citizenship.

Is imho more about your location (or destination of a trip).

This is how I understand it as well. But anyone is welcome, German (locals) comments are often helpful to us Auslanders..

Moving on to bike choices and routes...

would a 50 cc Vespa be too wimpy?...JK Actually, the functionality of the little things has become apparent to me since living here. But the lack of machismo is still ...well you know.

I gotta be honest, I definitely see the practical side of a scooter. I've given them serious consideration, but only for use as transportation. One plan I'm giving thought to is to buy a "real" motorcycle for use when I wanna go ride, say, on the weekend, and a scooter for zipping around town and going back and forth to work Monday through Friday.

Hallo Macgyver, what about a vintage CX500.
Best urban bike, no one steals it, cheap, no chain and often sold with suitcases. Heard for example off carburator thefts direkt from the beemer.
My CX had about 200000 km on the clock, good tyres and TÜV for nearly two years, costs 300 Euros and brings me everyday to work.
Beside, she has many space under the frame and i can reach nearly everyplace.
Hans

This was our trip to Corsica, no preperations, saddle up, take fuel and next stop Genua,...

Hi, try www.limbaecher.de, lokated in Filderstadt, near Stuttgart-Airport, they have so many bikes, they need to sell them

I hope to get my VFR fixed next weekend (fork sealing, brakepads,etc...) and get there back home from Stuttgart to Essen

Insurance = Versicherung

Here are some insurance sites I found. I am not endorsing any of them just putting information out there.

WGV.de

VHV.de

RUV.de
http://www.ruv.de/de/privatkunden/kfz-versicherung/motorradversicherung/index.jsp
RV24.de
http://www.rv24.de/direkt/kfz/krad/motorrad.jsp

The following websites compare various insurances. I don´t know how good they are but they'll give you at least an idea of the price range and insurance companies there are.

Hello Schelbi, she is famous, the picture off your XL CX XL.
Are you still trying to sell your old XLV 750r ?
Found an other one on Corsica, only little work needed.
Hans

sorry, mean this one:

I talked to the owner and he told me, that it is true, i saw the same bike (in better condition) 1987, cause it belonged to his brother. But our CX family is still growing.

Greetings vom Hans
