August 25 2008, 61,705km

The 24th and 25th Pim and I went to Belgium, Luxembourgh and Germany to do some speed-touring, meaning we didn't went for the scenery :)
First we drove asap to Beaumont in Belgium to start my South of Belgium route which ended in Diekirch, Luxembourg. The route was nice, but better suited for ZX12R's, Busa's and the likes, seen the wide curves: made for highspeed cornering. In Luxembourg we followed another route that we've found on the net. Very nice. A certain piece was so great Pim had to ride it several times.
At the end of the day we rode to the start of a route that would lead us through curves in the German Eifel. We found a nice hotel near the river Mosel: Hotel "Brauneberger Hof": not expensive, good food and wine.
The next day started with a bit of rain. The route was mostly very nice, except for the part that lead us to the Nurburgring, that part was very boring. The Ring was occupied, so we couldn't make a run on the circuit. After the Ring we went to the starting point of another Eifel-route we found on the net. Along the way we passed an impressive radiotelescope: the one at Effelsberg.
When we'd finished our "currywurst mit pommes und mayo" we went further and drove along yet another curvy route.
At the end of afternoon we decided to call it a day and head home. After a while on the boring highway we were fed up with it and made a detour over some Dutch dikes. After this Pim was more or less broken on his sportsbike, me on the comfortable Pan was much less tired.
After about 1500km in 2 days we were home again.
