Plan. *Well not a detailed one anyway. *Oz to Poz...nan bike to ferry, ferry to Helsinki (21hrs) then.....?.....some riding and pics.... *and back but via the baltic states. *Some riding, some sites, some wilderness. * I had been to Helsinki quite a few years ago and with a reason to go for work for a couple of days why not ride. *The bike is a 690 set up with panniers and tested on a ride through Poland and Sweden. * X the bike Commitment Wednesday, travel booked wed night, fly friday start Saturday. Plenty of time. Now I am sitting in a plane on leg 1 of the trip. *2 more legs and then on landing in Poznan I will have the afternoon to load up and make about 400k to Gydinia ready for a morning boarding of the ferry. There have already been some other forays into the wilderness which have helped the preparation. ** X Sweden in summer at the Huski museum! X creating the submariners club in Ukraine. Vodka was used to formalize it later. *What I remember of Helsinki was marinated raw fish which was good, statue of the mermaid and ? That's about it, or all that is fit for publishing. * My brother in law who has a KTM shop is key to the success of the plan and any of the missing bits. * I have packed boots, lid, warm gloves (still snow on ground apparently) and repellent and GPS and spot. *Need to remember to get pants and socks. *Mine were dirty, smelly from riding and not fit for packing. To guide the trip find I have turned to Advrider, but found very little on the north.* Google is not much help either. *I have put the word out however and things are looking promising.
