Part of Aursjøvegen

Excellent pictures from our country!

Part of the "anleggsveg" at Aursjøvegen is currently washed out. (As far as i can tell , there's a pic from this exact spot with a happy 990 owner (sold now, I presume)

I dropped Der Panzerwagen (990) but thats not unusual for me. The 690's had no trouble, but with a 800m dropoff it's good to have a spotter. You spot a SE which belongs in M&R, the rider you may or may not know?


Foggy and pi**ing rain. But fun was had anyway.

Inspiring

Great Ride Report!!!

I visited Norway 10 years ago, while there, I stayed in Oslo with good friends from the University of Utah. I honestly didn't want to leave.

Fast forward to present day.....My fiancee and I are planning on getting married and having our honeymoon in Odda.

Beautiful photos, gorgeous country! I hope to visit Norway in June 2014 to visit my grandfather's hometown - and homeland - for the first time.

Fantastic report, especially the photography. I spent almost 3 weeks touring in Norway in 2011 and loved every minute of it, probably the most beautiful place I have been, especially the Western Fjords. Big thumbs up for "allmansratten" and the "buy a coffee travel mug and refill for FREE at any Statoil" - heaven on earth for a cold caffeine addict on a motorbike!

Norway was high on my to-do list,
but after seeing these postcard worthy pictures,
I have to put it on top of that list.

Like someone wrote: most only know the shortest, fastest way to the Nordkapp,
but miss all the beauty of the Fjords.

Thanks for the report
