    Well that just proves I know nothing about Euro plates! :D
    Thanks

    By the way I'll be in Germany in about 7 weeks so if you could all start warming the place up I'd appreciate it! :wink:

    Italian. Looks like an I on the left side and the dimension of the plate is
    like in Italy but DK is not an itlalian Province as fas as i know ...

    Edit:
    My fault .. the DK is not the province, the province on italian plates is on the far
    right side of the plate. left is euro stars with the I and on the right blue part a
    2 letter code for the region can be printed on (not a must have).

    Quick question guys...What would the proper translation be for "Trail riding is not a crime" in German?

    I asked a few of my non-riding German friends, but they don't seem to know how to translate "Trail riding".

    > would translate to "Pistenfahren ist kein Verbrechen",

    but most people would probably rather use >>> "Geländefahren ist kein Verbrechen", which actually translates to "off-roading is not a crime".

    How was it? Comparable to the HMT or BMT?

    Unfortunately I a) didn't read the response on time (my bad) and b) spontaneously had to leave munich that weekend... Guess I'll have to go next yr!

    Technically a trail is an unformed lane. Gelaende translates to terrain, but in the context of riding it means off-road. I'm pretty sure trail could be translated as Gelaendeweg. So it should be "Gelaendeweg fahren ist kein Verbrechen", ausser er gehoert dir nicht :lol3

    It's so much easier in NZ........

    Hi There,

    Wondering if someone can help.

    I want to but a part for my G/S, but it is pick up only in Ellerbek (near Hamburg I think), and I am in Sydney, Australia. The guy says "Nur Abholung" so I need help.

    I guess I need someone to pick it up and take it to DHL/DP and ship it for me.

    Does anyone live/work nearby who might be prepared to do this for me?

    I will pay a reasonable amount for the help (or promise to assist every German I ever meet on the road (as if I don't already - it's a BMW!))

    Thanks for any advice or help,

    Toby

    The part is a paralever tank.

    I missed the one in Ellerbeck (i had no shipping option), but I am onto another that will ship only in Germany.

    If I could get it shipped to an inmate in Germany who could send it on to me, I would be very grateful. It should be about 60 - 80 Euro, which of course I will send immediately.

    Please let me know if someone can help.

    Cheers from (rainy) Sydney,

    Toby

    I'll be riding in Bavaria in late May and thought it would be fun to meet some fellow ADV riders if your interested or know of any riders that would like to meet or ride the area together.

    Cheers , Dan :freaky
