Thanks for the comments!

yes we had a lot of fun on our trip
The bike is a Kawasaki KLR 650 from 1987.

I also read many stories that you have to pay a lot money for tunnel und entry. The pay station for the tunnel was empty, so we didn’t have to pay anything. For the Northcap we paid 20€ per student. I think it were 30€ for “normal” people. After you paid you have a stay permit for 48 hours and you are allowed to camp there.

About Oulu: This little city was not very interesting (only some small statues were nice to see) and it was pure coincidence that we were on a wednesday there. Every wednesday the bikers around Oulu meet there. On this day there were around 30 bikes. One of the guys told us, that on good days there are more than 200 bikes… but we have to say: very nice and friendly people

Da hauts da ja den beidl aufd seitn! Great trip, great report! Funny enough.. I am planning on doing almost exactly the same trip - 2 up to the North Kapp via the Baltic states, on a '90 Yamaha XTZ 750. So I feel very much encouraged by your report, seeing that it is absolutely doable. It seems that the most 'offroad' you had to go were some gravel roads, or did I miss anything there? Because that's all the offroading I would want to do when riding with a passenger. How did you get food, how expensive is it? Did you go to restaurants, supermarkets? More wild camping than regular campsites? Can't wait to see more pictures. Great video, btw! Greetings from Vienna, sewarion

Hi Guys,
What a great trip and 2 up too...Looks like you prepared the KLR very well; nice looking bike and set up.

Enjoyed very much your excellent and imaginitively put together film; it brought back some good memories of our trips many years ago to Norway. Isn't Geiranger fantastic.

Thanks for taking us all along.

Ride safe both

Cheers
Potski
