Day 07 – Haage to Munich (Germany)

11:59 pm Germany, Motorbike/Motorcycle, Travel

I left on Saturday night at about 10:45pm, and rode through the night. There was no traffic on the Autobahn, and it was easy going. At first it was 18 degrees Celsius, which was nice, but within a few hours the temperature had dropped to 11 degrees, which wasn’t so nice. So I had a few stops along the way. At one stop, which lasted about an hour, I sat and read a German computer magazine.

As I neared Munich, the sun was starting to think about rising, and it was very pretty. There was a bit of heavy fog, but nothing too concerning.

I was already passed the center of Munich when the sun finally poked it’s head over the horizon.

And then a little while later, I was admiring the sun rising over the Starnberger See (Lake).

I decided that I had time to circumnavigate the lake – and it was well worth the ride.

Notice the snow still on the mountains in the distance?

But it was shaping up to be a great day! Virtually no clouds to be seen anywhere.

The road was very relaxing – the greenery was stunning.

I bought some pretzels for breakfast and sat by the lake. It was so peaceful.

And it wasn’t long before I had circumnavigated the lake, fuelled up the bike and packed all my stuff.

I travelled 2750km in 5 days (plus two days without riding), and had averaged 100.6km/h for the whole trip despite snow and rain.

It was a wonderful experience, and I can highly recommend it to anyone. Frankly, if I hadn’t had to go to Berlin, I would have spent a few days touring the Black Forest instead. That would have made this trip perfect.

And as for AllRoundRent? I have not heard from them since I returned the bike, so I presume they were happy with everything. I certainly was, and will rent from them again!
