While driving I was driving at 200 Km/h there were a ton of cars that were passing me as if I was slow which pissed me off!

The cars that passed me while I was driving at 200Km/h:

  • Audi A6 (HatchbacK)
  • Audi A4 (Pre-2000)
  • Opel something!
  • Ford Mondeo!
  • A DAMN VAN!

If you are on the highways and there are no speed limits visible you can go as fast as you want, I was following groups of people going 180 to 210 Km/h, its insane and I can’t believe that the whole lane were just flying. People are a bit aggressive in their driving but they are systematic, so its not as if they are trying to cut you off, they are just trying to go fast too, and if your going faster they will move out of the way. I am assuming I got caught by a couple of cameras, so I will know it a couple of of weeks from now. Another recommendation is never to go faster then a cop, but I did follow a cop and I wasn’t stopped so I got away with that.

The scenary is extremely beautiful and the banked highways were amazing to drive fast on! We literally drove through every season in the last 24hrs! We drove through beautiful sunny weather, through rain, through hail, and everything in between! It was insane, I was confused by all the weather changes it was different. And sometimes me and the navigation just didn’t agree and she would go nuts on me! I was laughing since my bosses in the car thought I couldn’t keep my foot off the accelerator! Everytime we had a distance of 100Km or more to cover I would always shave 30 minutes to one 1 hour & 30 minutes from the time to destination. I need to get on a race track post haste! For some odd reason there is no valet parking in all of Germany!

I just wish I could ride my bike in Germany my cruising speed would be everybody’s cruising speed!

    Yes shopping in Germany is fantastic. You should visit Stuttgart or Dusseldorf and you would be amazed by the quantity of shops.

    A DAMN VAN!???? I can’t believe you were passed by A DAMN VAN!!!!

    You should try driving in north of Finland!! You’ll get some company on the road often! Rain dears running with you on your sides! Now that was something I loved!

    I always give the same; never pass a cop, but following one is not as bad you could get away with that, advice to my friends!

    I think you really should take your bike one summer and just go and have a good long drive in EU!! And it will be really fun if you have few good biker friends along! :)

    I would join you if I have the time, bike and money then! :D

  7. Lexicon: I will keep that in mind for next time, especially since we were in a train station.

    Missy: No.. its HAIL! They are balls of ice and they hurt! hehehehe! They come flying down and can really hurt you!

    G-Funk: I agree, I might just visit for a few days to drive there!

    extinct dodo: yes it is! Beautiful!

    Jacqui: yup it was!

    Laialy: I can do the driving! No clue about the shopping! Not my thing!

    ???: We passed through Stuttgart, but not for shopping. I have no clue how shopping is in Kuwait.

    Nora: Seriously! That thing was fast! I was surprised and I felt that my honor was being challenged! looool! I agree riding in Europe has always been in my head but never had the oppurtunity until recently. I’m really thinking about it now and how to go about it.

    It is perfectly ok to pass a police car in germany.

    In general there are NO SPEED LIMIT except for some parts where the autobahn goes near citys, but even if there is a posted speed limit you can still pass a cop provided you are not going faster than 20 km/h faster than the posted limit (it is called tolerance).

    I personally drive to work on the autobahn every day and a pass the police doing 150 km/h more than they are and it is perfectly legal.
