Sorry about the delay.
I'm planning the same trip the other way around, starting from Belgium. Good site by the way, and nice riding report. How did the Heidenau's do, I've ordered my set for the KTM Adventure. My companion and I leave at June 10th. Any do's and don'ts not yet mentioned?
Good luck on your trip!
They were absolutely fantastic. Plenty of grip on both tarmac and gravel. They're worthless in mud, though. I've put about 12000 km on the rear tire, and the front tire is still going strong (18000 and counting). Your average TKC80 would have been worn down to the canvas after that. Don't expect the same mileage with the amount of torque the katoom produces
A few things in general maybe. Don't ever open your visor in Finland. Not even when you're stopping. Always slow down when you see reindeer. They're suicidal, the lot of them. Check your insurance coverage and bring an international drivers license. In theory it's not needed, but I've been told some police officers in rural Poland and the Baltics have not yet received the memo. Oh, and for Norway, if you're planning to use toll roads, register your license plates in advance.
Are your geo-tagged photos all from your mobile phone ?
Excellent site and a brilliant read....I love the Dutch sense of humour :)
Nope, the camera I've used (Canon SX260 HS) has GPS. I've written a small script to translate a bunch of photos into a KML file, which in turn is projected onto a Google map.
You had to register your license plates? For what roads?
The ones with that AutoPASS sign. I've seen only one, but then again I've skipped most of the main roads. This site was helpful.
Motorcycles passes free trough AutoPass toll booths, no need to register.
Ah! I feel stupid now. Ah well, they've paid back the whole amount after 85 days. As promised. Thanks for the clarification.
