    One week, that's it.
    One week and our four week holiday have started.

    Who are we?
    Tore and Pia that's it and in about one week we'll ride out of Trondheim, Norway without any particular goals other than riding and drinking good beer in the evenings.

    Only thing I know so far is that the first leg will be to Oslo for the over-night boat to Kiel, Germany.
    Then, we will see...

    Sportsters and beer on a summer day. Well, it's non-alcohol beer for me now but I can't tell the difference.

    Pia, my S.O. is 1/4 Finnish actually, grandmother came here as a kid when the russkies "liberated" their home town of Viborg.

    ...she don't speak it either... :doh

    I know a couple of Pia's of the Finnish, a Lea and an Asko all from up north, the celts also share, is the language so different that it can't be understood?

    Cool, I am on another planet here on the other side of the flat earth, perhaps I misunderstood an inflection

    That's a little like saying Mexico is in the US area, and then speaking Spanish to an American... :rofl:rofl:rofl

    Looking forward to those photos, Tore, gettting a little loopy here!

    Not much of pics this week i recon, will be a mad week at work getting ajour.

    Fired up a S100RR friday after lunch after changing out some gears in the gearbox and heared a noise of rubbing dogs or something in there. Got so angry I had the engine out again and in the engine-stand in a little over an hour.
    It sits there waiting for me come monday, next friday can't come soon enough...

    Good beer is the enemy of great beer, lets hope you find great beer! For such a pursuit is indeed a noble cause.

    Not my fault that muricans can't even speak English.

    https://www.fluentin3months.com/most-spoken-languages/

    Weird how American isn't on the list. But as you can see there are other commonly spoken languages, I wonder just how much Spanish is spoken in America!
    Sorry forgot to add the :rofl bs that you tried to score points with :-)

    Best of luck on your first 4 week holiday for you, Tore and Pia. I really like your thread title for this RR...here's to finding great beer and having equally great experiences on your ride!
