Motorail

Hi all,
I want to take the bike on a tour to Croatia this summer, form my base in Northern Germany  In order to avoid a tedious day or two on the autobahn squaring off tyres and draining my other half's finite tolerance for motorbikes I thought I'd take the motorail for a big chunk of the route.  I have looked online, but it seems expensive (maybe £1000 each way all in) so I was wondering if anyone had tried this and what their experiences were.  Thanks.
Dan

ps: Honda Blackbird ;)

Bike it.

Send your wife on an aeroplane and ride the bike to Crotia.  It'll give you the chance to see what the 'Bird will do on the German autobahns.

P.S. A few years ago I rode to the Czech Republic on a GT750 and my wife flew over.  We met up in Wenceslas Square and I took her down to Brno.

thanks for the reply

That's not a bad idea.  I can arrange for a new back tyre to be fitted in Croatia or wherever, and it'll still be cheaper.  I don't mind the long hauls, but the blood runs cold when I think of the mrs caught in a rainstorm, or even just sitting on the autobahn all day.  I may well do that.  Thanks.
