Cry The Arctic in February

I mentioned your trip to my father. He made several trips round Nordkap in 1944 on an aircraft carrier, and flew round that area in an open cockpit aircraft - a Swordfish. He says he wouldn't...

Great bike

You have a great bike. I had 3 CXs back in the 1980s. I rode one to the Alps and Italy twice (from the UK) then had a sidecar on it and kept it 19 years until the frame cracked. Great roads too.

Launch sidecar

Well you probably know but that's what they called a launch sidecar. The styling is great isn't it. There are holes through the wooden floor so I wouldn't try floating it.

Thanks for this. The forecast isn't so good so we'll perhaps go by car - a wet dark ride home doesn't appeal much.
