    Hello ADV Riders

    I am proud to announce the annual European ADVrally in Norway 2010


    The start of the Rally will be Sunday 27.06.2010
    Location : we meet up nearby Fagernes

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sou...mping+og+hyttesenter&hnear=Leira,+Norway&z=16

    We can stay in tents or cabins here.
    I will send out an list in April/May for reservation of the cabins.
    We stay here for 3 nights making lokal Rides and returning in the evening.

    I am planing an 3-4 day Adventure ride for the rest of the rally, with sleep over in tents or cabins. (new location each day)
    We ride from 200-600 km each day depending on the group and route I set.


    I will send out an new list in April/May.



    As for groups and rides, I will recomend to split up in groups max 8-10 people. (For the first half of the rally)
    Maps with trails and roads, set up in camp and people come together and make groups.

    I can not be an guide for 40-50 people,so this must be organiced by smaller groups when we come to basecamp.

    There will be some payment on the roads,as they are private and they let us go there we have to set good example and pay the toll.

    it will be mostly hard gravel roads, real high speed adventure riding:-)
    80-90% gravelroads..
    I can also arrange driving on the local MX trail.



    I will post an new tread under this one where you can put your name in if you wish to join this Rally. (This to get an ca. number of people joining)

    I will send out an new list in April/May.

    Welcome to Norway ,Hope I see you here in the summer:D

    Best regards

    Damn! I was really interested in this but alas it is too close to an already booked vacation with SWMBO. I will continue to lurk in case things change but hope there will be a next time?

    All the best & enjoy

    I'm in with the SuperTanker (GSA).

    After the Rally, I'm heading to Garmisch for BMW Motorrad days (2-4 July).

    I offer a spare room in Stuttgart to anyone wanting to tag along for that.

    Very interested in this but at the moment my leave starts on July 11th. I'll see if I can swap it.

    What is the terrain going to be like. I mean is there deep mud?

    I have seen you on the Triumph, and you will have no problem driving that in norway.

    Cool. I'm planning to be in norway from 21.6-04.07 so perhaps we can meet.:kumbaya
    I hope that good gravel roads fit better to my wee than this damned steep ski slope& muddy tank training fields.:cry

    And its important that somebody has an eye on you that you don't go too fast on unknown roads. My mum always told me that this is very, very dangerous :gerg

    Brilliant. Holiday dates are swapped so I'm in. But I might be a day late because some friends are planning a visit to the Assen MotoGP on the 26th. I quite fancy doing that as well.

    Now, I'm thinking I might use my Tiger for this. How knobbly do our tyres need to be? Tiger's boots are brand new Avon Distanzias at the moment.

    So that's
