I think that it self evidently should look that way from the start. Makes the normal version look wrong. Well done.

And see what happens to your safety record.

Insurance costs for eastern travel

A major consideration in the cost or renting a bike seems to be is the bike allowed east of Germany-Austria or not. Make sure if you would like to travel there that the included insurance covers it.

It truly is an open border, just do not try to bring fire arms. I think you still only need a drivers license for ID but they may have final upped it to passport.
