.....continues







Now south. Try to take the west of Rugen. Coming to a cobblestoned road and ride a few hundred metres on it. As long I can see the road is like that. The small wheels on Vision donīt like it so I turn back and find another road.





Found a road more at west. First ferry and itīs windy, very windy.





In the wind I just dare to let the Vision go for a second.





On small roads. Wonder why there are a white cross on every tree?





Second ferry and the high wind is not there. It starts to rain again and me and Vision stay under roof.











Find the funny roads again. This one was not good for small wheels and I turn back.





The old road next to the new road. I follow this road against Poland as long as I can. Nice cobblestones as well.





Another version of the betongroad. This one in good condition and fine to ride on.












Good one, opens as a lever?





Always nice to ride beside water.





Sometimes follow roads for bicycles.








Pimped Simson with 80īs homemade paint.





Coming to Poland border.






........to be continue

There are a road south wich takes over the channel after Swinoujscie. I choose to go straight through the Swinoujscie and try the local ferry instead.








At the ferry. I parked beside and check out how it works. After a while staff comes up to me and tell me to ride in either on the right side or left. The cost is free.






Vision parked in the ferry





Short but a busy ferryline





Getting out









On big roads again. Got my own drivingline but have to check in the mirrors all the time....

At Miedzyzdroje now. Have booked a room at a hotel, but she doesnīn find my booking. The old lady canīt speak english and she is only shaking her head and tells "no no"
I donīt give up. When she realized I will put up my tent outside in her garden, she founds a room for me. She is not happy!





A while a Heavy rain. When it stopes I get to the beach, not for a swim, for a beer.











Weather is not ideal for a swim, but....





Poland is knowed for their nice beaches.





Sun showes up a while when I get my Tyskie beer





Nice pier













Lot of small Groups showing up.
Then a walk in the centre, pizza and few more beers. Iīm tired and get to the hotel early.

Tomorrow I will turn back..........

I Always like to ride at the back yards. It shows more the real country, not the touristrouts.






I`ve decided to take the same rout back and Iīm back at the ferry in Swinoujscie.






Morning and tire people getting to their work.










Through Swinoujscie.

North of Lubeck. There should be a GPS for moped. I really didnīt know there are a tunnel under the channel and itīs not allowed for moped.
About 100 meters from where I can pay for the road I can see a bus staying. I also see the bus has some kind of trailer behind. I ride to the bus.

The bus goes under the channel and the trailer has a pics of a bicycle, baby carriage and a scootmoped.
When I ask if I can roll on my moped, he watch a while on my Vision, point a finger to it and asks -"what is this?" I answer -"moped"
The busdriver looks a while on the moped, points again and asks again -" what is this?"
I tried this time to specify at same time I point to the picture on the trailer -"moped, scoot, fifty cc"
The busdriver goes around and checks again my heavy loaded scoot, shakes his head and after a while he points me to the tollroad and says -"you ride, goodbye"

Well, few euros and I ride. If police stops me I blame on the busdriver







Tunnel went out well, and Iīm at Timmendorf och Scharbeutz





No tent this time either. I book a room.





Pack up and directly out to the water.








Weather is not for swimming today, but there are some kind of activities.








As usual, not much more. Long days on saddle makes me tire. Pizza, beer and the to the bed.

Early morning and as usual, tv is on. This morning is little bit different...the computer is on my stomach and the batterys is empty.
A little morning walk at the beach and then I`m on my way





I do not care what roads the GPS takes, I just follow it. There are not much autobahn and motorways to get to and I can see itīs going in right direction






Over autobahn and trafic is on





Bridge to the isle where the ferry is.





Leaving Germany.





Coming to Denmark.

Still with you.

What kind of camera are you carrying with you? I need to replace the one I am using. It is too hard to use with gloves on. You seem to have no problems with shooting and riding at the same time. Wish I could say the same.


Also wish Honda would sell Vision and Innova in the USA, but no luck there.

Great

Iīve been using a Minolte Z1 camera. Strapped around the neck. Camera has perfect weight for shooting from bike.
But, I think the camera is more than less now retired after many many years use in sun-, rain- and winterriding.

Now I have bought a Nikon D3100. Iīve already tried it when riding, but found it not so comfortable, little bit to heavy and the lens is also to long.

Sad you canīt get this bikes. Iīve seen some strange imports like....you canīt get among others the Honda Varadero 1000
But, you still have got the best 50cc there....Ruckus/Zoomer

Not much left now




Leaving the ferry and as usual, motorway not allowed so have to take the small roads.
Old bridge. The new road is few kilometres away and goes under the water.





Passing the old bridge, Storströmsbro.





At the right side I can see the new bridge.





I`m trying to take a shortcut, but a sign tells me that moped is not allowed. Have to respect that and turn back.





Coming to Copenhagen and the traffic chaos there.





Well, itīs okay to ride there, just follow others....





Coastroad from north of Copenhagen. Love this road, water on my right side and....





......beautiful houses on my left side.












On the ferry again. This time between Denmark and Sweden.





Lot of mopeds. Danish people living in Sweden getting home from work. Moped is free on this ferry.





My new friend I met when I came from Italy. She looked shocked when she se me again. She looked like we are still on the Italy travell and she has passed out a while and just wake up. Her first comment was -"WHAT THE.....?!?!?"





Sweden coming.





All at the same time....racing!
Funny, all mopeds goes after leaving the ferry straight. I turn after the cars and few kilometres Iīm first. I win!





I`m serching small small roads. Nice beautiful roads.






From here, not much left. My Traffic is waiting for me. I load the Vision in it and......1500kms drive home

Everything over there seems to be really scenic. I also noticed that it seems to always be cloudy. Is that normal or do you often get more sunshine?
