Gone fishing

There's a first time for everything, including ride reports (:

After enjoying the flu for what seems like a month (actually a week and a half) I broke out my old fishing rod and took my queen for a ride along the mid-norwegian coast line.



She has some simple mods like MRA windscreen, H4 bulbs, tooltubes all around, and some nifty electric gadgetry (which is still work in progress). I have also added a self-inflating pillow to increase the peg-seat distance. The tripmeter is dead though, pending new capacitors to see if that helps.







Not the most interesting scenery in Norway, but adequate for me who hasn't seen the outside of my apartment for days.



I don't think WD40 is gonna cut it.



Old industrial houses and abandoned docks.



This is my cod rig (I actually caught a cod at this dock, but I forgot to photograph it).



I believe this is some old german fortification? Not quite sure.



The rail runs around the islet into some bunker installation (there were some people there so I was polite enough not to photograph them).



Mr. porpoise says good bye after chasing away all the fish. Well good riddance, I had already caught dinner.

All in all a perfect feel-good trip. The queen felt good after doing some suspension adjustments. She's 18 years old, after all. I hope everyone here had a nice weekend, I sure did (:

Nice. I always traveled with a pole in my past. Still do sometimes.

Last summer, I was coming home from a two night stay on the mississippi. Hot day, so I pull into a country bar for a quick cold one. On the way out, I see all the Harley guys come over to look at my Kawasaki Fake harley. I'm thinking they were making fun of the Jap bike. Instead, when I get there, they seemed amazed I have the pole on the bike. Dude, you catch anything???

However, our waters around here are nowhere near a beautiful as your pics. Thanks for posting and reminding me of a fun trip.

Beautiful Country. I'd love to visit someday.

Those anchors look like 17th Century? I recently saw a bunch just like those found on the bottom of the Zuider Zee in Holland.

Thanks for your comments guys, hopefully I will get my photography workflow running from here on out and post more reports this year.

@Rhino081460: thanks!

@dave6253: I don't think those anchors are that old, although I cannot know for sure. They are very rusted though, I'd guess there's not much actual iron left.

@alekkas: travelling with a fishing rod has its advantages and disadvantages. You can catch dinner, and you can completely blow your schedule at the same time.

@seriousracer: hopefully there will be more (: There are plenty spectacular places to ride around here (especially back home in Nordfjord), so my next reports will probably be more interesting than this one.

Great pictures of a country I'll probably never see except though ride reports such as your. Thanks for the time and effort to share.
