Not German!!!

While I am not German myself, and therefore forbidden from posting in this thread (or so I read somewhere), my brother (German born and raised) and his family live in Tuebingen and I have visited often. So I just wanted to extent a greetings to everyone out there in my adopted third homeland (The US and Mexico coming before I met my brother). Hopefully my bike can join me on a future visit!

Prost

My brother has a sister (long story) who lives in Basel and I have visited there as well. I will be watching intently as the Germans take on Turkey in just a few hours!!!

I need a hand from the German people.

I am desperate in need of a ride from, let's say Ramstein Military base to Durmstadt BMW dealer sometime in the beginning of next month. Anyone want to help out a future GSA rider GET his GSA? More then happy to kick down the Euro for the gas.

Another one..........

Just to comply to the prejudice that Germans love to register, forms of all kinds and that we use to found clubs if more than 7 of us intermingle.

Stefan from D (uessel) dorf with HP2 and R80G/S and having the pleasure to introduce myself to you and looking forward to seeing you someday, somewhere

ROFL. I'm a Texan in Germany. Munich to be exact.

Ride a '05 R1200GS, had the 'lil F650GS before that one, plus a HD 883 Sporty and a F650ST.

Have some TT stuff on my bike, use a TTR if I can't find home, Kahedo seat and Wilbers suspension, some other goodies I wasted my money on.

Good to be here !

Mike

Question Moving?

Hello all. I've been offered a job near Munich and I'm seriously considering it. I was there quite a few years ago and seem to remember it to be a great place for touring. Is there any dual-sport (overland) riding in the area? I currently live in Colorado (USA) so I know there's little chance that I'll find off road riding as good as here.
How about riding for kids? My daughter is 10 and has been competing in Motorcycle Trials for a few years. She's learning to ride 'bigger' bikes now. Can kids ride or do all riders need to be licensed even if they ride off-road? Is there off-road riding? Trails, motorcycle parks, etc?
I currently have a Honda Transalp. While its a few years old it is a trusty bike. I'm considering having it shipped over with my stuff. Does anyone know how tricky it is to register a bike from another country? Yes, yes, I'm sure I'd be better off on a BMW but she is what I have.
The Rockies forum (Wyoming/Colorado/New Mexico/Montana) is very active. There's nearly always something going on where a bunch of us get together for some sort of riding, drinking, eating and/or camping adventure. Do folks in Bavaria get together regularly?
Any other thoughts or advice?
Thanks,
-Joz-

Offroad riding is a sad tale in Germany/Austria. There's still some gravel trails open in Italy but the green movement is getting stronger there too. So it's predictable that those trails will be closed for vehicles soon (or, if they stay open, paved). Stay in Colorado, it's offroad heaven.

There's the GS-forum and there's the boxer forum, but they are all in German. think they have meetings and WE trips together, but mostly tarmac.

I don't know enough about MX tracks etc. to tell you about riding for kids.

Cheers
Richard

Thanks Richard. If riding was the only factor I'd stay in Colorado. I'll keep my house here and would plan to move back once my work was done but I think it would be a wonderful experience for my daughter. It has been a long time since I've lived overseas and would really welcome the total change of lifestyle.

We'll see.
