New experience on the motorway!
This time the German motorway police transported me and my bicycle free of charge some km on the highway between Quedlinburg and Aschersleben,where no speed limit is !! Luckily I did not need to pay anything for the "transport". The young commander of the local motorway police held mich in civil off. He organized the transport. The policemen drove me in Aschersleben directly to the from Aschersleben to Könnern leading country road. So it could not happen again that I am comming back to the highway, they ment.
My excuse was:I could not find any signs here as in France several times in the past.
