I'll do my best to keep you posted, but can't promise!
Re the seat: not quite sure what is the seat height but is lower than the lower one from BMW.
There's a bit of padding, but not a lot, here the problem!

Sorry. missed this question!
My original idea was going to Nordkapp but then I realized that's it's a bit far, so I don't know if I'll get there or not.
I reallz want to enjoy Norway, not riding like crazy because I have to get there (and... on top of that, I was there in 2000, so 'the tick is already in the checklist ).
Tor, you live in a wonderful country, lucky you!!!

nice girls, ...

Congrats on your entrance/appearance here on ADVrider!! In total opposite to many others you start with an introduction instead of asking for something. Than you prove being a real advrider by posting a picture from you riding through snowy central Europe. Later on you prove beeing clever by attaching REAL paneers instead of plastic stuff to your standard GS. And finally; You post real ridereports including pics.... Now, THAT's what I call an appearance!!

Nice gals, nice blog! I'm in!

Bravo Marta.
It s the trip that most europeans dreams off.

This one gave me goosebumps! I used to drive there every other day (at least!) during my time at the university (in Grimstad). I loved that rest stop, I would spend hours in the sun there, listening to the river.

Great ride and the wheater seems fine was a bit afraid of that because I'm leaving for norway on Wednesday, norway is so beautiful.

Btw the 9 starting from kristiansand is a very nice road to, enjoy yourself and maybe see you around...

Great report, Thank you! I'm in. The bread looks wonderful, now I have to bake some tonight... When I was in Spain, and Barcelona, it seemed that there was never olive oil in restaurants for the bread. It seems like every hillside in Spain is covered with olive trees, but I always had to ask for olive oil! I am glad to see that you know how the bread should be eaten. Buena suerte, y el buen viajar!
