If you visit austin, the salt lick is a must!! lots of beautiful hill country to ride if you have your moto which i did not, but there is plenty to do..

Still in doubt; if I'll go alone I'll probably go with my motorcycle either to the French Alps or I'm going to do a trip to Sweden/Norway with my CBR.
With friends I'll probably hit up on Eastern Europe or Russia. I hope I'll see something of the country though, last time in Poland I was more awestruck with the amount gorgeous girls (even while Krakau is a beautiful city - http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krakau).

I'm thinking about heading towards Croatia as well; got any experience going there?
I've been to Zagreb several times, and have also driven in the car to Rijeka, Umag, Poreč, Mali Lošinj, Opatija, and Zadar. I've driven north along the coast highway from Montenegro past Dubrovnik and Split then north to Ljubljana. It's very scenic and the roads are pretty good. In the summer the highways near the seaside get very crowded though, and there can be several-hour waits for the ferry to some of the islands. The main highways have tolls, but they're not expensive. Near the coast a lot of people speak English, and throughout the country people speak English in restaurants and hotels, but not so much in shops and petrol stations. It can get really hot in the summer, up into the high 30s. I'm originally from Scotland, and don't really care for the heat.

5 bikes (so far) taking the "Circle Tour" of Lake Michigan this July. Asked my son if he wanted to ride with us. "yeah, I want to spend a week with 50 year olds talking about laxatives and colonoscopies. Fun". LOL. His loss.
