So you´ve got the Blue Ridge Mountains and we have got the Harz (ask your girl for more details
) and Scandinavia in a 4h range.
So, how do you like the GS? I grew up in a familie of "BMW nuts" My dad and my mom were riding BMW's. I'm originally from Beckum / Westfalen. I move to the US 23 ago. I have been riding for 29 years, various italien, jap and german bikes.
Touring is my favourite riding. Work just gets in the way...
I can imagine the scandinavian route would be somewhat similar to Alaska / Canada. Last year was my first Alaska trip. We shipped the bikes to Anchorage and rode the Alaska Hwy to the end (or beginning) back to Atlanta. Some 5,000 miles in 3 weeks. It was awsome.
This year a buddy of mine on his 1150GS and I on my GSA will go from Atlanta up to Prudhoe Bay and back. From Fairbanks it's some 500 miles gravel on the Dalton Hwy. I'm really excited about that trip
. We'll leave on July 18th for 3 weeks.
My riding buddy is originally from Luebeck. He has been living in the US for some 10+ years.
Good luck for your doctorate
