Planning a Germany Ride...
We are in the planning stages of a ride in Germany. Tentative dates are summer, 2014. The plan is to ship our bikes ahead of us, and then fly over and pick them up at the dock.
We'll spend 2-3 weeks touring, and then ship them back and fly home. I may, or may not, see if I can sell mine there at the end of the trip. It will depend if I can really get huge money for it in Europe, or if that's urban legend. It would save me the return shipping cost, and puts me in a 2015 when I get home.
One guy that is going with us was born in Germany, and is fluent in the language. Another is retired military, and was stationed there for several years, so we are not flying completely blind.
I would like to hear from folks that have ridden in Europe, Germany specifically.
What pitfalls should we be planning for?
How should we insure the bikes, and what about health insurance should one of us get hurt?
Drivers license issues?
Other issues we haven't thought of???
I hate that motorcycle they make me ride. I'm here to tell you there ain't nothing in the world I hate worse than that elephant under my ass.
