Don't post up if you're not in Germany or are going to be negative.

In Stuttgart for 1 and 1/2 months

Hi guys, I've just arrived in Echterdingen, near Suttgart, yesterday. Took a 3 days trip form Cluj-Napoca, Romania (ride report comming soon), I'll be staying here one and a half months.

If any one nearby and up for some rides/beers/socializing, pleas drop me a line.

Also some routes to take around here will be nice. And some adresses of cheap mechanics for and old Funduro, just in case.

Regards,
Dan.

ROFL. I'm a Texan in Germany. Munich to be exact.

Ride a '05 R1200GS, had the 'lil F650GS before that one, plus a HD 883 Sporty and a F650ST.

Have some TT stuff on my bike, use a TTR if I can't find home, Kahedo seat and Wilbers suspension, some other goodies I wasted my money on.

Good to be here !

Mike

Question Moving?

Hello all. I've been offered a job near Munich and I'm seriously considering it. I was there quite a few years ago and seem to remember it to be a great place for touring. Is there any dual-sport (overland) riding in the area? I currently live in Colorado (USA) so I know there's little chance that I'll find off road riding as good as here.
How about riding for kids? My daughter is 10 and has been competing in Motorcycle Trials for a few years. She's learning to ride 'bigger' bikes now. Can kids ride or do all riders need to be licensed even if they ride off-road? Is there off-road riding? Trails, motorcycle parks, etc?
I currently have a Honda Transalp. While its a few years old it is a trusty bike. I'm considering having it shipped over with my stuff. Does anyone know how tricky it is to register a bike from another country? Yes, yes, I'm sure I'd be better off on a BMW but she is what I have.
The Rockies forum (Wyoming/Colorado/New Mexico/Montana) is very active. There's nearly always something going on where a bunch of us get together for some sort of riding, drinking, eating and/or camping adventure. Do folks in Bavaria get together regularly?
Any other thoughts or advice?
Thanks,
-Joz-

Or it could be the ruin of her & undo all the hard work I've done in the past years turning Pumpy in to a respectable member of the community, one who can hold her head up in public (by pretending she's Dutch).

It's been a long & difficult task, with plenty of tears, wailing & much woe (mainly on my part) but at last I'm beginning to feel my work is done.

Please delete this thread, I can't go through it all again (mind you, the additional income from the EU "Care in the Community for Disruptive Germans" fund will be useful as always ).
