If you don't want to ride the Autobahn ....
Just for info for anyone that might be interested.
If you don't feel like slogging along the German autobahn when travelling to central Europe, I just booked the bike and an overnight sleeper couchette for EUR 88.0 Dusseldorf to Vienna
- that's cheaper than the cost of the petrol!!!

You do need to be able to speak a bit of German mind!
