I'm in Heidelberg, and the roads here are pretty good. The Polizei don't bug us, and we can get some pretty good twisties going. You can ride about 8-9 months out of the year. It's never hot enough to keep you from riding, eve with all your gear. It does rain quite a bit, and there is also some snow...alot like Seattle. In the summer there are hundreds of bikes on the roads. I don't know off hand what the rules are for the Navy as far as a motorcycle license, but it is a pain for the Army. Be prepared to spend a month or more just getting legal to drive. Some people choose to drive illegally (without a license), but if they get caught then it's their ass. Welcome to Deutschland.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.
