Thanks Jamm, MSH and Tofire409 for this nice welcome.

What's in the box? It's an Orange Lava F800GS - my and my motorcycling adventure buddy we have bought two of those, exactly the same in colour and equipment. We getting ready for the next years trip around Adriatic Sea. I think we have bought the right bikes.

If everything will go OK, I will fire it up for the first time tomorrow.
Have a great weather for riding today,

Alright, so I took it out of the box today and I went for my very first ride. I think I had a smile all around my head :)

Laugh The long way to North Cape and back ...

Some pictures from me & my son's North Cape trip this summer ...
3250 miles in 12 travel days, 130 kg total load on the bike (incl. my sons 55kg but not my 82kg ),
average 0,42 lit/10km in temps from 2-39 C degrees. Just tent and own cooking, and one tire shift.
No problems with the bike and with two Airhawks no problems with the comfort either.

Hey,

Great trip!
A few years ago we took almost the same route - here's a link to our gallery.
Why didn't you choose to go trough Lofoten Islands? The views there are breathtaking :)

My son is 10 months old now - I hope I will be able to go with him on such a trip in the future :)
Take care,
rfk

We did ... the pic with the blue sky is from there. Put in the wrong route pic, corrected now.
It was at town Moskenes that I realized that we had to get new tires ... we had one resting day there
to hunt for at least a back tire, took the ferry to Bodö the day after and got a pair of Michelin Anakee 2.
By the way ... great pics from your trip, in big parts the same route as ours, could actually recognize the
places from several of your pics.

Our resting day in Moskenes ...



The day after, went up 3:30 am to pack all things and be ready to catch the ferry to Bodö



New tires on the way
