I am American, but a good friend is from The Hague.
Tot Ziens(??) y'all.
I usually take my bike out on the beach, since there's lots of it, or do roadbook rally's, which can be up to 70% off road, new roadconstruction sites, and new development areas on weekends.
To bad haven't been able to figure out how to post pictures, i have some real great ones, hopefully coming up soon.
Oh yeah you're from Texas? i used to be in Laredo a lot, to pick up Freightliners for Canadian dealerships, some real friendly people out there!!

All the way on the other side - Vancouver. Thanks for the welcome! How do you split your time between the three locations?

Need a bike there ASAP, as it will be my EU transport. Considering shipping my 2008 GSA over, but the costs of that are adding up (~$2,000+ plus administration fees on the Dutch end, there, $2,000 when I come back, unless I sell it there). So, now leaning towards buying used there, instead of shipping.
You should be able to ship your bike with Autoliners from the eastcoast, think the rate's still around $600,00 US, its ro/ro and sail out of Baltimore and Pensacola, if somebody's charging you $2000,00 they'r pulling your leg.
