They're Germans, they all smell bad. At least that's what my grandad told me.

They probably saw you laughing your head off and figured you were friendly

1) lane splitting in California is legal, safe and fun



2) it's gonna suck for anyone trying to drive a car into Laguna Seca for the MotoGP

Why do we trailer bikes to rallys? Because we own big pickups and trailers that get used even less than the bikes themselves.

sounds pretty cool to me



"World of BMW has arranged a ride-out programme in conjunction with the nationwide BMW Motorrad Dealership Network. A mass of motorcycles is due to assemble at the Eurotunnel terminal in Folkestone at 6.30am on Thursday 30 June. On arrival in Calais they will split into organised groups and ride 385 miles across rural France to Strasbourg, on the border with Germany. After the overnight hotel (or camping) stop, the groups then complete a 255-mile ride through Germany to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. They will stay in the German town for two nights and attend the Biker Meeting events hosted by BMW Motorrad."

So, your preferred alternative would be to ride across the English Channel? Or, are you simply going to lash your bike to your back and swim, like a real man.

Sounds like a little more than 200K.

Riding in Europe is far better than pavement pounding Stateside. As for great rides try 4000 mile 10 day jaunt to and from SW Germany to the Artic circle in Norway.



As for the BMW rally, hopefully I will be able to post a small blurb.

In South Africa, everyone rides to the Rally except for the "Harley Boys". They send their bikes by rail or road to the Rally!!
