For the prices you mention, I'd consider shipping the bike to Iceland. Or simply take the ferry. Don't know the politics on advertising, but I don't work for any of these companies. www.eimskip.is www.samskip.is www.smyril-line.fo (this is the ferry) When driving in Iceland, I found it convenient to buy a map from the tourist-info, where all the hot springs are marked on. And later I learned that a thermometer is handy. There's also some sort of card you buy, which makes the camping cheaper. If camping more that 10 sites, the card has payed it self. If you see a triangular sign which you've never seen before, underlined with the text "MALBIK ENDAR" you should slow down. In fact, every triangular sign should be taken serious. The Icelandic's are very practical people, ad they never put up signs with no use. Another sign which looks like a normal two track road with a thick line in the middle means that the asphalt guys have cut corners, and have only put tarmac on the middle of the two tracks. The idea is that cars will always have two wheels on tarmac, and don't need to slow down when passing. When driving in fog patches, it could be handy to have a switch installed on your bike, to have your brake lights on constantly. Tickets are paid on the spot, which results in a discount. Police, cub scouts, prostitutes and embezzlers all accept creditcards. If the price is under (i think it was) 3000 ISK they don't bother with signatures and PIN-codes.
