Welcome to the Forum Andew :-)
Hey really sorry the rides you had organised did not prompt me to approve. The forum has been recently set up and there are still some bugs. Very sorry about that :-(
Keep me posted about your schedule - hopefully I can make it east to meet you if you do not plan to cross the country :)
I will for sure. My only issue is that I am not a resident in Australia and I am waiting for my residency Visa application to go through, so can't leave the country until I know the answer. Its normally a 6 month process time but I am on my 18th month!! As soon as I do I plan to hit Europe straight away.
Did you take a ferry ride not long after leaving Stavanger? If not, I suspect you rode via Suleskard and Dalen.
Dalen definitely sounds familiar. I remember we went up high shortly after leaving Stavanger, where it was almost like riding on the moon/another planet as was the scenery. Then we came down the mountains in what looked like a big Valley where we found a camp site. The next day we went through what seemed like endless forest up high. Was great. :-)
Sounds like the road I thought it was. Between Seljord and Suleskard, including going through Dalen, I averaged just over 100 kph on the Virago, despite having to wait for a green light at a road construction site and being sensible in the 40, 50 and 60 kph zones. It was also raining here and there. Was fun.
We should try to meet up, then! The boat is no longer in traffic, though. What route did you take from Stavanger to Sweden? Eirik
I don't remember exactly though from memory we headed out a little NE of Stavanger, lots of mountains and twists. My friend Jan & Paul were navigators. It was all a blur as we pretty much raced all the way till we got to Sweden. My bike is in Italy, so I will likely ride up from Italy, and to Belgium where Jan is. Then we'll head from there to Sweden and ride around that part and into Norway.
We could definitely meet up, that would be great :-)
Hey I have ridden through Norway, did it back in 2007. I arrived in Stavanger via boat from Newcastle. Then we rode all through the mountains to Sweden where my friend Lars lives. Norway is Beautiful. When I head back to Europe probably sometime next year will do it again. :-)
Hey buddy welcome. Thanks for joining :-)
