Rainer, would be nice to do the trip together.
Do you plan to take the ferry at Wischhafen/Glückstadt or the Elbtunnel at Hamburg?

Anyone else passing Hamburg on Friday?
I guess more west route for us...

I am on holidays and plan for the moment to travel through the Netherlands north at the coast to Bremerhaven and then via ferry Putgarden to Danemark.
I shall give after the holidays more infos.

As posted above, my routing to VIM and back home.

Dear Norbert thank you very much for your advice, because of your advice I have booked a ticket for me and my bike in train traveling from Insburk Austria to Dussoldorf Germany and way back. So the same day the ferry arrives to  Venice I travel to Insburk 350 kms and take the train in the evening.
Bernard and Gilles, I have enquired at the Honda company in Israel about the company’s two year warranty, they said that I can go to any Honda service station in the world and from the frame number they know that the bike is still under warranty and would fix anything that is covered by the warranty.
Still this does not solve having a puncture problem, I have enquired with ADAC it is something like 84 Euro for yearly membership and I do not think it is worth for a 16 days trip. If I do not find a good solution, I shall carry with me front and back inner tubes, tools and hope for the best.
After booking for train from Insburk Austria to Dussoldorf on going to VIM21 I found out that after reaching Dussoldorf I have 7 days to reach VIM21 about 850 Kms. This gives me a plenty of free time. As a 74 years old bikers that love good food, wine, scenery, history and girls. I would appreciate ideas on what to visit and what to do, I started planning the Margurita route but any better ideas are welcome.
