Well, since many German highways have no speed limit, this has not been a problem. I travelled from Ulm to Füssen (where the inspiration for the Walt Disney Castle is located, Schloss Neuschwanstein
) once early Sunday morning and averaged about 120 mph. And had to use the slow lane a few times to let the fast cars go by. Surprisingly the accident fatality rate here is one of the lowest in the world. (On the other hand people really do not speed when there IS a posted speed limit). Something to be said for getting it out of your system.
However, not so many off road possibilities here, that is what we are looking forward to in the US, and the Jeep will take the bite out of having to drive 70 everywhere by opening up other possibilities...
