I´ve been reading a lot of great ride reports on this awesome forum for some time now and now it´s time for me to contribute with my own. I´m new to riding and have only had my license for about a month now but I have bought a nice 1997 Super Tenere so I´m ready to hit the road! Unfortunately I haven´t had the time to get to know someone who drives a bike so I had to do this trip solo. At first I had my mind set on going to North Cape and the Lofoten islands but I realized that I didn´t have the time nor the money for that trip this year so I´m saving it till next year. Instead i took a more moderate 1350km trip to some really nice places in Norway that are closer to home (I live in Sweden). Let´s begin! I drove in to Norway from Funäsdalen in Sweden so my first stop was in the lovely old copper mining town Röros that is on UNESCOs world heritage list. It´s really nice to walk around in the town but unfortunately it has turned in to kind of a tourist trap and it´s hideously expensive to shop here but hey, thats Norway in a nutshell. I payed 150 Norwegian crowns for an ordinary burger with French fries and a soda, thats over 25$!!! There are a lot of these old Norwegian houses with grass roofs in the town. The old mining days produced a lot of slag and these big piles are now a popular tourist attraction. A picture of the river that runs through the town. I pushed on to the west towards the mountains and passed by this old gas station from BP:s golden age... I tried to gas up the bike with some SUPER but the pump just wouldn´t work. You can pack a lot of shit on a Super Tenere if you got proper bags. Coming closer to the mountains the rivers turns green from the melting water of the glaciers.
