As far as the route goes I'm sticking to the lower west coast of Norway with Bergen as the highest point! From Bergen in will travel east to Oslo and from Oslo to Stockholm back to Amsterdam!

Try the Vrijbuiter in Zaandam, they should have some options within your budget.

While Stockholm itself is nice, the roads in Sweden are booooooriiiiiiiing.
For twisty roads, you'll have to stay in Norway, so just go north to Trondheim from Bergen.

+1, I'd rather start in Kristiansand than Larvik. Nordsjøveien (Noth Sea Road) one way and Setesdalen back (or opposite) for roundtrip. Nordsjøveien and the road over to Lysebotn may be my favourite roads ever including all the alp roads I've done through the years. They are very twisty and the scenery is like nothing you've ever seen even if you've lived in Norway you whole life. This could be a first day:
Kristiandsand-Lysebotn
Then take ferry but jump off halfway (need to tell them or they'll go right by) in Songesand and follow this route, you'll NOT regret:
Songesand-Odda

Last day then would simply following Nordsjøveien (Noth Sea Road) from Stavanger. It's the part between Egersund and Flekkefjord that is truely magical so be sure not to miss it as main road continues further into the country.

As the other guys say, there are nice roads east of the mountains (where I live) but you more ride in the woods than the mountains and fjords in the west.

+1 to pingvin.
He's recommending that as a Norwegian.
I've ridden Norway several times as a non-Norwegian, approaching
Lysebotn from both directions, most recently followed precisely pingvin's suggested route in 2011, including jumping off half-way (well...it's actually a stop...you don't have to jump off or dump the bike )
Just do it (assuming, as always, you're not totally socked in by rain/fog).

+1 to pingvin.

I´m been attemptin for a walk to the sights three times at Lysebotn/Jörpeland. Never done that. I´m not lazy, but I like the beer more. That happens the two first times. Third time I rode from Northern(similar pingvins from Odda) and took the ferry to Lysebottn from Stavanger/Lauvvik........nice

Nordsjöveigen is also a nice ride.

About the tent. Sometimes there are raining, so it´s good to have a tent ready to sleep in less than a minute. I´ve seen when visiting the German shop Louise.de a tent called Nordkap. http://www.louis.de/_1079622c987e2dc...=wgr&grwgr=610 I´ve a similar tent 4bikers.

Hostels.
Get a list of hostels in tourist office, it can come handy, if weather get bad. It's a bit expensive to rent cabin for one person.

Hostelling International have a list of hostels per country:
http://www.hihostels.com/dba/country-NO.en.htm

Also hostelworld.com have an App for the Android, which we're planning to thoroughly test out this summer in the Alps.

Hostels are usually our preferred type of accommodation, comfortable and get to meet far more people along the way.

Whoot i`m making big steps into going.

I`m the proud owner of the hostel app wich works like a charm. The bike had its maintanance and the man that did that maintanance said he never saw such a well taken care of V-Strom.

I`m clear on my route in general and will try to stick to it as much as possible.

The tent i found to be best for me is the : Coleman pictor x3. ( the x2 is still a possible change but i`m liking the more spacious x3 ).

I have a great new suit for riding and waiting for my Sidi Adventure boots.

I`m doing the navigating with my old car Tom Tom since allot of people said its not a problem aslong as you keep it dry.

I created a tool tube, bought 2 Kriega us5 for all my little luggage and a luggage roll from Louise.de.


Now i need to look into clothing what to bring and what not to bring and i need to do some tryout packing and camping .

+1. And SAS-Tec protection is the best, personally tested it in 100kph high sider sliding between road and bike (it seems, don't remember much). 2 days in Austrian hospital (helmet cracked) but no bruises at all thanks to SAS-Tec in back/knee/elbow/shoulder/hip, it all hit ground at some point.

Nice boots too!

Post your route when done, maybe there are some hidden gems along the route we could tell you about.
