Was working in Germany just before St Patricks Day so I hired a GS and the guy I was with got an RT..

Headed towards Neuschwanstein Palace so we headed towards Garmisch, turned off at Oberau and took the "back road" to Reutte..Our plan changed when we saw the sign to Innsbruck.. Couldn't resist a visit there on the bikes during Ski season

Turned around then and headed back towards Fussen and got there as it was getting dark to see the palace. Then took the Romantic Road back towards Munich again. Did about 450km in total..

I'd definetly recommend the trip.. But it was one of those once in a life time rides to have 2 foot snow banks on the side of the road as you overtake another bus load of skiers on the hairpins heading up the Alps.

Heres a photo of my ugly mug at a frozen Lake Plansee..
