Could it be that you are in touch with Eric Demant in Heilbronn and intending to visit him in May? I've been corresponding with Eric for the last few weeks about modifications to a 100GS that I'm building at the moment with a friend (driveshaft, starter, rear shock, tank........the usual problems). He mentioned that a fellow Englishman called Graham, riding a GSPD, was heading this way in the next few weeks. If that is the case, and you are indeed heading this way (I'm in Rosenheim - between Munich and Salzburg where the Autobahn splits towards Slovenia and Italy) maybe we could arrange to meet up and compare our respective routes. I'm not able to leave until early August but then plan to crack on quite quickly towards India/ Nepal - I'll take my time on the way back.
