Newby in Norway
Hulloo from a new 'Trooper!
I just got a new-used 2006 DL650 in Oslo, Norway. Purchased recently with about 5000km on the dial, full hard luggage kit, and crashbar and I am adding a centerstand, handguards, and a MadStad screen bracket. I plan to ride this as my primary transport, both commuting and touring.
This is my first bike. I will disregard tooling around Colorado a few years back on a buddies old HD and riding a 50cc scooter here in Oslo. I have also spent a good portion of my life in two wheels riding bicycles, including oddball fixed gear rigs on the streets of Washington DC.
I am already signed up for Norwegian MC classes and plan to have my heavy MC license in the early spring. Because I am ambitious, I'd like to ride up to the Lofoten Islands next fall (about 1700km on way) for a climbing trip rendezvousing with a buddy from the USA. Anyone have tips on such a trip?
Does anybody know if flushmount signal lights are road legal in Norway?
PS: No, I am not Norwegian, my girlfriend is. This is a common story among Norwegian expats.
