Another stolen Tour-report from Norway
« on: August 13, 2008, 03:35:01 pm »
A guy at a Norwegian MC-forum made a great report in english. I just had to share it with you. He writes in english. I think he copies it to other fora.

Yes. We norwegians are proud of our beautiful country. And the roads have lower standard than yours. So they beg for trips for MC-drivers.

That´s a good idea. But don´t forget that we have a cold winter.

Ah, but in summer you have really LONG days to make up for the cold, dark winters... Can cover a lot of twisty road in 15 hours if needs be... :)

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.

Don´t forget the midnightsun. In northern Norway is it sun 24/7 in midsummer.

Another proof that there are MANY beuatiful places to ride all over the world!

Oh but where is the time....  :dontknow:
... There might be a few bumps ahead in the road, but luckily you are well trained in off road riding! ... PS: for sure, I'm a lot tougher than I look!! ;)

We spent about 3 weeks in Norway about 2 years ago (two on a coastal steamer)

One of the most beautiful countries we have ever visited

Isn't the grass always greener...? Here I come to dream about riding in SA, and the first thing I see is a ride report from Norway. :-) Then it strikes me: Perhaps someone is ready for a bike swap? You borrow my BMW F650GS in Norway, I borrow your whatever in SA.

Some crazy guys drove to the north cape a year ago. This is extreme sport in my mind. Something to think about when you enjoy your summer down there. If you plan a trip cape to cape with bike, dont arrive Norway in our winter.

I share the same dream, but I would prefere to start at North Cape. Some time, another year.

Hey guys, this swapping idea sounds interesting....
Anidea in my mind is to host visitors out here, show them the sights and then they get the honor of doing the same the next time we can all get the leave in their home turf.
Any takers? Am fairly serious about this thought.
This could get BIG if you get a truely multi national group.
