herebelow my impressions briefly: BMW Motorrad days was fun!
We arrived from Italy, parked the bike, took shower and went to the main site. A lot of bikes, bikers, beer, tents of vendors, music etc. BTW, music - we just entered the site and from one of the tents with speakers and 2 guys playing djs started another song, started with the words "FUCK YOU ALL"(repeated two times). "Well, interesting beginning," - that was my thought :-))
The main impression - very friendly atmosphere, ambiance! People came for a relaxed and easy week-end. And they got it! no fuss, no crowds, no tension, no need to stay all the time on the site - there were trips, excurcions, para-gliding, lift to top of the mountain, test-rides of the bikes and much more . The only weak point, IMO, was the souvenirs shop - everybody wanted to buy a t-short, a cap and so on. Had to queue and ,of course, there were several smart guys who wanted to save their time.
I saw only two policemen(one of them was policewoman though). And organisation was awesome!
Had Baehr Verso XL along with Capo3U installed and bought one Capo3 for my wifes FST. Intercom is really nice thing for long trips - now can not imagine how to deal without it.
Spent three nights in Garmisch and admired the place, the event and the people.
Thank you, BMW!
