I thing there was a repair kit or spare tubes on every single bike, but we never needed them. Apart from mentioned problems everything was flawless. I think Maddin and I didn't even had as much as a lose screw.

Tremendous RR!

I have been absolutely overwhelmed with the spectacular scenery and pristine untouched environment in Iceland. There is no better way to travel and experience a country and you have captured the magic of exploring by motorbike and a special landscape at the same time. We are all very envious and you have wetted our passion for someday making the trip ourselves. Happy New Year!

Help me out here, Hans: Orange KTM 690 with an aftermarket fairing and having trouble to keep its parts together - not just the skidplate - was that yours?

Maddin and I were about 3 bikes behind the scooters, and maybe right next to you in line.

Excellent report and superb pics.

As it happens we were in Iceland last August on 1200 GS's with a friend from Germany.

Just started a report on it, if you care to have a look.
