Newbie here in the Netherlands

Hi Folks

I知 an English female living in the Netherlands. I致e been riding since 1975 (gives you an idea of my age) and currently own a black Triumph Bonneville T120 and a lovely yellow VStrom 650 XT

I love my Strom as it does everything I want it to do and prefer it to the Triumph. In August of this year I知 riding it to the very top of Norway (Nordkapp) a distance of 7500kms in 3 weeks. The solo journey will take me through Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden and I知 doing it to raise money for cancer research. I値l be vlogging and blogging as I go.

Thanks for the welcomes guys. Last week I came back from a tour of the Scottish Highlands, did 2300kms in a week and the bike ran like a dream

It was a good practice run for Norway!!
