Hi all I was thinking it could be a good idea if we all knew where eachother lived,Scandinavia is a big place, so I dont think a weekly meet is on the cards,
but we are all out riding and could be passing oneanother and not knowing it,a stop for a coffee and a chat could be just the thing to break the journey.
I am an Englishman but have been living in Saxvallen (50 km north-west of Åre ) for the last 18 years, if you are ever up this way give me a bell and I`ll put the coffee on.
Take care, ride well Bill

Hi Roar
myself and a friend usually ride into Norway for three or four days in the summer,we spend most time riding in the area Trondheim Molde Dombås Rörås taking in
Atlantavägen Trollstigen and Geiranger,really great roads and scenery,we were thinking of maybe trying a bit more southwards this year,and I was wondering if
you knew the area south of Dombåsand could suggest some roads and sights to see.

Hi Bill

If you want great scenery, you should try Valdresflya. It goes past Jotunheimen. Furhter south there is a road between east and west over Suleskar. I have never been there myself, but I know it is known as one of the best roads for motorcyckles in the whole kingdom...
I also can recomend crossing Hardangervidda and go to Hardanger, lots of beautiful places over there..

06:30 Tuesday the 15th I left Saxvallen to begin a four day ride into Norway.I rode to Duved and met up with Fredrik (my riding companion for this trip) we passed the Swedish Norwegian border at Storlien,then carried on to Stjördal where we took breakfast,stomaches full we continued westward to Trondhiem,then south along the E6 to Stören where we bought food and drink for the evening,taking the 30 south east we headed off towards Röros where we took lunch.From Röros we took the 31 eastward back into Sweden and spent the night in Tänndalen where Fredriks grandparents have a summer house which we were invited to use.The day had started with rain but by breakfast it had stopped, so most of the day it was good riding weather,that is until we came to Tänndalen where it absolutely poured down.




Day two started at 07:30 we headed back into Norway, passing Röros we took the 30 southwest towards Dovrefjell stopping in Tynset for breakfast,and then following the 30 and 29 we made our way to Dombås,the sky turned black so we got the rain overalls out.Riding south west we took the E6 to Otta then the 15 west and finaly the 55 onto Sogndal where we found a campsite with a cabin to hire for the night




Day three saw an 08:30 start, we left Sogndal to explore Sognefjord,the fjord itself is 200km long and we were going to ride most of the northen side,the scenery was beautiful and there were lots of places of interest to visit but we unfortunately had no time to do so.




Day four a 08:00 start took us to Funäsdalen where we ate breakfast and checked out a couple of snowmobile and MC sales lots,after which we headed back to Norway took the road northward and home.We took the old road via Tydal and made our way to Stjödal,and then onto Verdal where we took a break for coffee before riding back to Saxvallen.Fredrik and I parted company and he continued home to Duved.The trip had been a little over 2000km long, not a long distance on a motorway, but on Norwegian roads many of which have a 50 or 70kmh speed limit, twisting and turning round the fjords and up and down mountains it felt more like 20000km.But as we all know its the ups and downs and twisty roads that make for great riding.Great riding , a great time had and looking forward to next year when we hope to make a simular trip.Not many weeks left of our MC season,we can have the first snow sometime in September so from now on we are limiting ourselves to day trips.

Wonderful pictures :)


When we were in Norway, two years ago, we had an adventure ride through a tunnel ...


it's in the proximity of Sognefjord and you may take it whenn you're late.... .... like Jörg and I :oops:

The tunnel is 25 Km and there are 3 points, looking like alien areas.. :roll:

but verry thrill.


I photografed it ....







and my husband got nearly a heart-attack, because he was afraid, it was a traffikcontrol camera and he was cached

It's realy very amusingly when you ride through it the first time.
.
You ride and ride and ride... and in the moment, you become a little bit fear, you see the green or blue light. You don't know, what it is and when you ride nearer to the light, you can see a big round place. At this place there are blue and green lamps at the top and you realy think you aren't on earth :lol:

there are 3 of this stations but the first and the last are the biggest.
behind the middle of the tunnel, the temperature falls and it becomes very windy ...
it's realy very interessting and you must experience it
:D

hope you can understand what I mean :oops: my Englisch is in-rusted


@Bill
if you like, have a look to my site, there are also pics from our last tour through Norway and Sweden 2004 :wink:

i went through several tunnels on the way to southern spain, i can only describe it as a computer game, led lighting etc, exciting but somehow scary, really weird, good fun :lol:
