September is a good time to go, second week, other than that I would suggest June.

The passion on this section of the forum to plan such routes is addictive.

I have only ever done one "road trip" -- August this year down to Baden Baden; B500 the next morning to Freudenstadt; then down to Munich (and an eye watering number on the speedo) and that stunning windy bit of the A8 autobahn; Munich to Wiesbaden and then Calais.

Timid for many but I ended up back home as follows:

(1) feeling surprisingly relaxed
(2) a massive grin on my face
(3) slightly perturbed that I was so in love with my 997
