Hello to all from Germany. I have been over here for a little over two months now and I have had an incredible time. We went on a 2 week Alps tour recently that was the ride of a lifetime and the weekday/weekend riding on the roads over here is nothing short of spectacular.

In Austria with my 2003 Honda Varadero:

A new addition to the garage on Monday:
Andrea is a very skilled and aggressive rider. The Tiger replaces her Bandit 1200S.

Okay, maybe I am a little homesick for BBNP !

Very nice roads. Wonder if we could convince their engineers to lay some pavement like that around Dallas?

In Germany? :lol2:

I always hear that we are cold and rude, sorta the New Yorkers of Europe. :zen: However, it really depends on the region. Glad you like it over there. I miss it a lot, can't wait to go visit again. ... I even found a local VFR meet just 5 min from our apartment over there. :trust:

BajaRat, where in Germany are you staying at, if you don't mind me asking?

In Germany? :lol2:
Actually, I meant Austria, specifically the Saalbach/Hinterglemm area...Germany is right behind it though. I think the people there are good natured as a whole.
