Hello everyone! Long time lurker here. This fly and ride trip occurred between the 13th and 19th of July 2019. I wanted to do this report while on the road, but it wasn't possible, couldn’t find any spare time to do this. Can’t imagine how some people are able to do it. Before I start, I feel I must give you the following warnings: - My English sucks, don’t expect a well written report; - 99% of the trip was on pavement; - This was our first time abroad on a motorcycle. - This is my first RR ever. Legal warnings given, let’s start with some Items of our packing list that I think are worth mentioning: - Water bladder: Norway is expensive. You don’t need to spend money in bottled water. Water from the tap has great quality. We just filled it in the morning and had enough water for the whole day. - Trekking cooking gear – Again, Norway is expensive. Cooking your own food helps you save a lot of €€€. We also enjoy cooking very much, so it’s a win - win situation. - Half a litre thermos – Coffee in Norway sucks! At least the few ones we tried. Having half a litre of hot water came really handy when stopping on the side of the road. In 30 seconds we had a cup of good coffee ready to drink. We filled it in the morning and during lunch break. - 2 light weight sleeping bags – Most of the days we stayed in camping cabins. Normally they don’t provide sheets, so you either have to rent ones (10€ per day) or bring your own. The sleeping bags also played a big unexpected role on the trip. You will find out more about it later on the report. We used Google Maps for navigation and it worked really well. Most of the information we got before the trip was found on this website: https://ridenorway.com/ We even found the rental place of the motorcycle through this website. The general plan for the trip was to ride West after landing in Oslo, ride on scenic routes and do a bit of hiking. Introduction done, next post will be about our first day.
