The first riding day; Erding, Munich to Rothenburg

After taking the motorcycles yesterday, everybody in our group from Brazil is really exited for what the day has for us. Thankfully the weather is perfect for motorcycling, and even better it's a holyday in Germany today which means no traffic on the roads! Perfect!
