Great Stuff! I had a just a few days motorcycling around The German & Austrian Alps last year, I would have loved to keep going south as you did. Your pics bring back some memories & remind me that I should write up a trip report!

The monolinguists among us are also very thankful when you euro guys take the time to put up a trip report in english for us

Cheers
Clint

Amen to that! I wish I was fluent in more than one language. So - thanks for translating to English and sharing your great trip with us.

When I was stationed in Germany, I tried very hard to learn as much German as I could, and also the basics for any country we visited (mostly France and Italy). I think the locals appreciate even a good attempt. I never got to the point where I could carry on a comfortable conversation, though.

I heard this one while I was there:

What do you call a person who speaks 2 languages? (Bilingual)
What do you call a person who speaks 3 languages? (Trilingual)
What do you call a person who speaks 1 language? (American)

Great report and great pictures! I remember sitting in a stau (or whatever the Italians call a traffic jam) under that section of covered highway coming through Northern Italy into Austria (near Brenner Pass if I recall correctly). Unfortunately, I was stuck on a bus! What a beautiful area, though!! You Europeans have so many cool places to ride!!

Ride safe.

I haven't been to Venice in this trip but have been there for a business trip. I agree, it is a very unique place but super expensive lodging.

Just a little nitpicking: The name of the castle is Neuschwanstein and it is by no means situated in Munich. It's about 80km southwest of Munich.

Stau is German. In Italian it would be "inceppamento di traffico".

Well, it depends. I guess, the longing to ride somewhere you can't go every day makes it so interesting for you guys from other continents. For a lot of us around here it's plain boring. I'm not a tourist, I live here.

On the other hand: for the same reason a lot of european riders like to go abroad and find places where not every neighbour has been already.

I planned already one for this year but starts from Istanbul.That will be my first abroad tour.I think I need your advices.I ride Rt 1150 Bmw.Probably, I will be alone.It will be difficult alone as somebody says like that.Anyway, I decided to do it and I will.
First,What about my bike, is it OK. for that road.
Do you think I need to buy a GPS.
What about prices and cost for hotels etc.(Just for 2 weeks)
that is my routes:Istanbul-Selanik,Igoumenitsa to Ancona by Ferry,Pescara,Meran,Bolzano and passes,passes.And return.
I think to stay mostly in Salzburg and make daily pass tours.
şimdiden teşekkürler,
