    The photos are so breathtaking I dunno how I'd stand seeing the real thing! I'd have to adjust my helmet so I could ride with my jaw hanging down to the tank.
    Steve, fantastic shots.

    Really loved the photo essay of your country. Especially liked the emphasis on motos and scenery. No food, (ok, one breakfast), no gushing over beers, no endless shots of yourselves. Just on the bikes. Really enjoyable posting. Thanks. This place is hi on my "to do" list.

    Thank you Steve.:clap

    I had been trying to decide where to go ( Scandinavia and beyond, the Pyrenees, Alps, Dolomites or maybe the good old US of A ) on my next tour and this thread has made my mind up for me.

    Scandinavia and possibly the Baltic states in 2014. Can't wait :D

    Excellent pictures from our country!

    Part of the "anleggsveg" at Aursjøvegen is currently washed out. (As far as i can tell , there's a pic from this exact spot with a happy 990 owner (sold now, I presume)

    I dropped Der Panzerwagen (990) but thats not unusual for me. The 690's had no trouble, but with a 800m dropoff it's good to have a spotter. You spot a SE which belongs in M&R, the rider you may or may not know?


    Foggy and pi**ing rain. But fun was had anyway.

    Great Ride Report!!!

    I visited Norway 10 years ago, while there, I stayed in Oslo with good friends from the University of Utah. I honestly didn't want to leave.

    Fast forward to present day.....My fiancee and I are planning on getting married and having our honeymoon in Odda.
