Smile Hello All from Germany

Hi All

Well we made it to Luxembourg. This weekend we are at the largest Motorcycle Sidecar Rally in Europe. It runs all weekend. Lots of BMW's with sidecars, Lots of MotoGuzzi's also. Only saw 1 LT with a sidecar so far.

Off to Hiershberg on Monday to rent a F800 for a 3-4 day trip with family.

Hey, Garry - have a safe ride on the rental scoot, and a fun one too. So many things to see and do, it's gotta be best-done in the saddle, rather than like we did in a cage! Hoping you have great weather and problem-free touring. Pics later?

Hi

Hope you have a good time in Luxembourg, it is the mecca for the Bikers in the neighbourhood (Holland, Belgium etc.) The countryside is outstanding, and the roads brilliant.

Have fun, ride safe and enjoy the scenery.

best regards
Sleuth

On the autobahns it depends on where you are. Some parts have no limit and some have 120 kph or even less (high wind areas or steep down hills).

Yes, you have to keep an eye out for the signs, it even goes down to 60kph in some places.

Got back Sunday night. The beedbreaker is attached to the tire changer. You can come and do your tires if you want. This weekend I am doing Moto Safety for the Cancer walk and next weekend is my ride for MS. Let me know what you want to do.

Re: Hello All from Germany

Great Gary.
Good to hear you are back safe and sound!

I will be tied up for the next few w/e's myself so it may not be until the riding season is over.

Thank you,

Mugz
