    Hi mate... You can ride 500+km per day in 12 days, total 6400km ...with just small breaks to feed your selfe or bikes...as you have to tanl every max 190km..but rather 130-150 ...not like on the higher bikes...also you make breaks chating with lokals and writing protokolls with the police and more... So you dont sit on the bike all day..but can rest a little too :-DD

    I know only too well, having lived here all my life and Policed here for 30 years....but as said, practical steps can mitigate the risk massively.

    It is Spargel time in Germany! So its time to have some fresh Asparagus... :-) that was the idea in background...but the colleagues have sent me to the Ammer see...that it should be a nice trip up to 200km... IMG_20190514_1643140.jpg

    To be honest...the landscapes close around Bad Wörishofen are a little boring..comparing to the UK last two weeks...especialy Snowdonia, Lake District and Scotish Highland :-) IMG_20190514_1623003.jpg IMG_20190514_1624146.jpg

    We have riden 7400 km, the italian chic mostly needed 7-7,5 liter per 100km..
    The pair of Pirelli Angel ST looks quit untouched in the front...
    IMG_20190519_1952269.jpg

    I would almost say the front tyre would make 20000km.. The true is, we didnt realy push...and have sit quite with the wait on back mostly..as the tankbag doesnt let you go with the bodu to the front..
    Only the wee ride in Scotland was light..withour luggages

    The rear is almost ended. It has lets say 0,5 mm over the markings..so still legal...but there is a little flat surface on the top...even if I really tryed to avoid it and have riden snake line on motorways...while some drivers knockt their head if they were faster...As the swiss AMG old dude..who left him self drive the lovely brunette :-) who wildly gesticulated... But maebe he just wanted to great us and show big respect.. Who knows
