Be warned, the Swiss police do not like motorcycles, especially with UK plates. So when you go through Switzerland do NOT do any of the following:
Exceed the speed limit.
Cross solid white lines (single or double).
Filter (Illegal in Switzerland).
Go through Switzerland.
You will get a heavy on the spot cash
fine if they catch you. So either ride like a nun or take bundles of Swiss Francs.
Also note that drivers will often pull out (with no intention of overtaking themselves) with no warning when you try to overtake them. Just to stop ypu overtaking. If you do get a car that moves over to let you pass, you can guarantee that they are NOT Swiss.
Germany (like Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy), however, is very biker friendly. I see that you mention Dresden ! not far from there (to the SW) is the Black forest and the wonderful B500, you must do it if you are in the area.
I have also heard (while on a recent trip to the Continent) that Slovinia is good for biking too.
