Have ponder "why didn´t I stop there when i passed it?" Last summer I
passed Stekenjokk when riding home from Norway with a motorcycle.
Afterwards I´ve thinking why I didn´t make any stop there and look around
at the area. Well, back there and do that, this time on my almost new
Innova 125. And….at same time, why not make a ride in to Norway

The ride:

Filled up, packed and……packed
First brake, between Älvsbyn and Arvidsjaur. Now I notice that Innova is
little bit overloaded. New model of Innova and there are no carrier yet, so
have to rely to a bag behind and a sissybag between my legs.

Overloaded Innova 125. Despite that the behavior is okay.

Luggage, licenceplate and exhaust looks big....or is it the tyre which

Little bit cold
Passing Arvidsjaur, Sorsele and Storuman fairly fast.
Little bit cold whole ride and it not getting better when the rain comes just
before Arvidsjaur. Just through the Arvidsjaur when noticing the weather
looks much better where I´m going. Do not make any stops often, at least
more than every 140kms between filling up the tank.
In Storuman weather is nice, take a ride around in village before heading
Wilhelmina. Time has passed twelwe o´clock and have now hurry up if
managing to get to Norway today.

Break after Storuman with coffe and sandwich, for me means it lunch be continued
