I have accepted an invitation to fly to Hamburg, Germany, to hang out with a guy I know mostly from a Motorcycle forum (BritBike.com). Tho we've chatted online over one another's various posts & threads, we haven't actually MET in person- or if we did meet, it was fleeting- at another 500 person BSA rally a few years ago on the Isle Of Man (45th BSA Internatrional, 2008). The idea being that we will load his BSA and his Yamaha XT500 onto his truck, drive up to Sweden, where we will visit a mutual buddy, then go to camp at a major European Hot Rod rally http://www.a-bombers.com/?PageID=1 . From there, we will continue on to Norway to attend the week-long 50th BSA International Rally near Valldal, http://www.bsaoc-ir2013.no/ where we will camp & ride. SURE looking forward to this trip. I'm more or less along for the ride, so not sure how much control I'll have over the itinerary. BUT it's gonna be a GAS. OH, and yeah, we're taking the truck- so not even sure if this is truly worthy of a post here on ADVrider... it's a mix of bikes & hot rods, good friends, new friends, some sweet summer travel, and no doubt, LOTS of ales. Beat me up if ya want to (I can take it), but so what! I'm going to NORWAY. Any suggestions for Sweden & Norway would be appreciated. I'd love to know more about Coastal Norway's weather patterns (cold & rain?), Day/night cycles of Summer (Land of The Midnight Sun?), terrain (mountains, big hills, rivers, fjords in, around & near Valldal).... and anything else anyone might think of to tell me. Yes, I have peered at topo maps, and Google Earth, so I know basically that I'll be camping some KMs inland, near a river that runs down to a major Fjord (Storfjord), on, or near what appears to be a big hill or mountain. Camp is located off the road 63, between Valldal & Mykelbustbrua. Anyone who knows the area, or has any info, please do not hesitate to add your comments.
