G'day ya'll (I need to practice my Yankee, figured I'd start here), After months of planning (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=547187), fantasy becomes fact today. It's 06:20 and I'm nearly ready to ride to Munich on leg 0 minus 1. I've solicited help from ya'll on the forum here, from the Guzzista on the Wild Goose forum, from random yanks that I met in Moscow, from..well, from loads of peeps and now it's time to ride the ride (well, almost). Leg 0 minus 1 - Vienna to Munich Airport to check the bike in. It's 06:20 and it's..of course, raining but shucks - I'm not gonna melt. In theory it's going to be an easy day today, I hope to be in Munich by about 2pm and back on a train to Vienna by 6 but...many the slip twixt pint of beer and lip. I'll post some pictures when I get back but for now, wish the Goose (that's the bike btw, not me) luck - she's gonna need it. Tally ho! Oops..the route overview :) thanks for that suggestion Blatant - it's rough but it's ready (if you're intererested in more specific route details check out the planning link).
