    I am hoping to assemble a group for those who are part of the Kaiserslautern Military Complex (KMC). I built a FaceBook page called 'KMC Adventure Riders' but found out about this site yesterday. No sense in reinventing the wheel, I suppose.

    Anyone in my neck of the woods?

    If we can get a few more folks who are interested, I think it might be worth organizing a ride.

    I have been a little surprised how difficult it has been to round up a large group from this area.

    Last year I really enjoyed (minus the rain) and this year also. Definitely a lot more people this year, but with that there were also a lot more displays and vendors. I have always camped and had a really nice time...

    I go to Touratech quite a bit and this is the route I take. There is a restaurant called "Lowen Schwarzenberg" about 2/3rds the way there from our area.
    I finally found a nice sit down place that serves all day (limited but still meals) and it's right along a great river/valley route.

    I am in the area as well (part-time at least). I ride a F800GS.

    There is a Horizons Unlimited meeting in Germany twice a year that is just outside of K-town. The next meeting is Oct 26-29. It is always a great event. http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/events

    Gentlemen,

    Im in Stuttgart , Böblingen actually. I don't go North very often, but when you come south, reach out. I also have some real good routes in northern italy, Touratech doest really support me, but Ive been there and I like it. I ride a Triumph Sprint ST 955i and I do the vintage thing with a 67 Honda CT90 daily driver, and a 48 Moto Guzzi Airone that goes to festivals and events, but in a truck if farther than 25 miles.

    I remember Brit Man from a stammtisvh in Cologne back n 2010. IM back Buddy.

    I am around in the event anyone wants to meet up. Heading out for a 20 day ride with my wife in October (Spain, Portugal, etc...) but again, am available to meet up if nothing more for a coffee or quick lunch (for those in the area).

    Was hoping to go to the Horizons Unlimited event this fall...had a nice time at the earlier one this spring. Hope everyone is doing well :)

    I'm working at Germany temporarily--but the bike isn't with me. Love the area, would really like to have a bike here and get connected to with you locals!
