    Back in August this year, my girlfriend and I did a trip to Nordkapp in Norway - 7200 km in 16 days.

    On the way North we followed the coast of Norway (more or less), and on the way back we traveled through Finland and Sweden.

    The first part of the ride we had company of two of our friends - it was their first motorcycle trip abroad and they used us as guides before being unleashed on their own.

    Besides having a great ride, we spent time on various outdoor activities.

    I'll let the pictures (in chronological order) tell the story - enjoy :norton

    Thank you , thank you for such a beautiful RR.

    In 1991 , when I came out of Russia into Finland , that trip to the Artic Circle was on my list. I was unable to make the ride.

    You have answered many questions, thanks!

    Great pictures and a great trip! Can't wait to go next year. How did you get on doing that many miles in that time?

    Outstanding. I'm intrigued by that white Honda as well.

    :clap Wow, just wow! Beautiful pics and it looks like a wonderful trip.

    (FIM rally is in Sweden in 2017. I expect I'll be dropping by.)

    You have something to look forward to. When the weather behaves Scandinavia is a great place to explore on two wheels and especially Norway offers some of the most spectacular sceneries anywhere in the world.
    Regarding to miles we did - I just love riding and don't mind spending long days in the saddle.

    The CB1000R did remarkable well but my currant ride is much better suited for this kind of riding.
