Hello from Norway
on: January 27, 2021, 04:14:19 PM
Hello
I live just up above the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway. Small place called Ørnes just south from Saltstraumen and north of Svartisen along FV17 - The Coastal Road (Kystriksveien)

My first bike was a Kawasaki 100 ccm back in 1982 - got my unrestricted license in 1985 and got the CB750 in 1992.
Has been riding nonstop with various bikes since.
My first brand new, was the V-strom in 2004.
Member of the local club, Ørnes Motorsykkel Klubb and BMW MC-klubben Norway.
Has silver FIM Meritum membership.

I had a testrun of the new XR last spring. An brand new red one (I consider by the way red bikes as a no no).
I enjoyed the bike, rider position close to my R1200GS, liked it!
Now I'm thinking hard for the 2021 season...

Bike history so far:

Kawasaki G7T 1977 (sold)
Honda CB750K7 1977 (sold)
Suzuki Intruder 1400 1987 (sold)
Yamaha FZR1000 1995 (sold)
Suzuki V-Strom 2004 (sold)
BMW R1200GS 2007 (sold)

Welcome.

I’ve just looked on google where Ørnes is.    Pretty far north! 

Beautiful scenery up there, and great coastal road-  you just need to avoid the police speed traps!

Well, I dont consider it as far North, still 1500 km of roads one way further up to Finnmark
