..Murmansk 2014

Hey everyone! :)
So here's a ride report of my last trip.

So the basic plan is quite simple - we want to see as much of Norway as we can and then go back through Russia and pribaltica states.

Our team:
Beata - she has done no more than 500km or so as a passenger.. but she's a great dancer!
XT600 - when we were leaving it had 156478km on the clocks (yeah, splendour!!)
piotrek - well.... :)

If you want to see some of my previous trips, here they are:

So are you ready to hear the story full of rain, iron butts and mosquitos big as small dogs?

We left Pogwizdow (capital city of Poland) on 19th June 2014.

First couple of days were rather boring as we considered it only as the fastest way to get to Norway. And I don't want to go faster than 100kmh. This would hurt my XT. In addition weather is not always the best..

Actually the further we go, the worse weather we have :)


We visit many valuable places!


No! Please don't! No!



If this is what it looks like in Denmark, I wonder what will it be like in Norway..


So basicly it's cold, wet and windy..


We took this sweet bridge in Denmark. It was so long we couldn't see its end!

Oh! We are in Kobenhavn!


Weather was poor but we decided to have a look around. Too bad all the nice things were somehow hidden. Or there are no nice things in Kobenhavn.


Then we went north to see mr Hamlet's castle. Mr Hamlet was absent but his castle was still there.


And then we took a ferry do Sweden.

It was not our intention to see too much of Sweden so we took the shortest way on the coast to Oslo. Sunset is quite late now which is cool for us.

We wanted to buy some small tomatoes. They looked so cool with so many different colours. But when we realised how much they cost we had to put them back :)



I think I must have gained some weight.

There's a lot of Harleys. I wonder if these are good bikes for longer trips. I don't care, some day I will ride a Harley for sure. But I'm more focused on Sportster though.



We visited norwegian Stonehange..

The famous Doug rode a Harley to Magadan. He created Dirtster from Sportster! Report is here somewhere. Also he rode old V-twin around the world once. His nom de moto might be "rtwdoug".
