Wildman's Ride the World 2010 - Scandinavia & Baltic States
Isn't it great when a plan comes together? A couple of days work in Sweden with eight days to get there and then eight days to get to the Danish Sidecar Motocross Grand Prix. Twelve countries, nine of which will be virgin territory for me on two wheels, seven ferry crossings, one train ride, a few nights in hotels and the rest camping. The route has taken a few twists and turns in the planning but has ended up a blast through Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Poland to get a few days in the Baltic States, two days at my client's beck and call in Stockholm, turn a wheel in Finland then across Sweden to do the Trollstigen and Gerainger in Norway, visit a colleague in Oslo before heading down to Copenhagen.
I'll more than likely veer off the route when time allows. Anyone on the route, give me a shout.
My 800GS is overloaded due to the work stuff I have to take along.
Now, I've got to say that this ride report has started with a rather ignominious dead battery in the camera and no charger but there's not much to see from the Autobahn and I'll rig something up before I leave Germany. I'm near Berlin tonight after a day and a half on the road, heading for Poland tomorrow.
I'm no MikeO but I hope I can bring you some decent pics and an interesting report when I get off the Autobahns.
