"The good news is that basic third party liability green card insurance for foreign registered motorcycles (called Grenzversicherung) is available through ADAC for 22 Euros a month. The bad news is that it is not available by post or email. You must show up in person or assign someone to go to an ADAC office with your original registration paperwork to apply and pay for it. This from Jens Messerschmidt at ADAC."
Fun meeting held in early September every year.
Schuberth makes the BMW System Helmets as well as their own line, foremost among them for the traveller the new Concept, a one-handed flip-up helmet with an internal flip-up sunvisor as well. I've been wearing the BMW Helmets since 1982, and now the latest Schuberth. Recommended.
Excellent Motorcycle Touring and Adventure travel magazine, in German only, fantastic photos. Over twenty-five years publishing great travel stories. Highly Recommended.

"I am an ex-pat Canadian living in Munich. We speak English, German, and smatterings of French and Spanish. We are in downtown Munich, just an hour from The Alps, 10 minutes from the BMW Museum and factory, and 2 minutes from one of the nicest Bavarian restaurants you have ever seen. Always happy to meet and/or help fellow bikers (especially those on BMWs - even if the 'B' now stands for Berlin and not Bavaria). +49-89-61-46-89-58 or t...@hedge.ca " Thanks Tim!
