Well, sometimes life just works out. I had to go to Germany for business, went a couple days early so I could rent a bike and ride around southern Germany a little. Turned out that last weekend was the BMW Motorad days Ralley in Garmish (close to Insbruk Austria). Well, let me tell you, if you ever get a chance, DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 30000 BMW riders, all types from Antiques, to the real Boxer cup racers, test rides on anything BWM makes, Moto test rides and the best of all, a grand ride through the Alps. 1500 bikes (give or take) on a 3 hour ride through the alps. Absolutely awsome. There was a ton of displays, a huge "Bier Garten.
Bike cost about $ 400 for 4 days from the BMW Motorad Central dealership, 3 floors on the showroom, every bike, some I have never scene before, customes, racers, VERY NICE PEOPLE. Riding in Germany was a dream, people actually respect you, don't crowd you and look out for you. AND lane splitting is expected.

I had a R1200RT which is really a nice bike for REAL twisties, would have really liked my K12S for the moauntains, and the LT for the autobahn, but the R bike does both very well.

Do you still have the contact info for the dealer you rented the bike from. A bunch of us are planning to head over there in 09 and are looking at rental options. Thanks.

It was on the Frankfurterring in the northern part of the city. The guys name was ANdy Green.

My friend used www.muenchnerfreiheit.de (then look for English link on the left) for a two day tour and said it was great.
