Ride out Ulvik, Norway
« on: August 18, 2017, 23:49:47 »
I have had the pleasure to have visitor from the main chapter of the Vstrom Owners Club UK. Ride coordinator Hugo Magnus organised a unofficial ride out for the local member. the ride started in the little village Ulvik, Norway and went up the moutains along a old construction road to a hydro electric power plant. As you can see in the pictures the ride was a success.  :dance:

This is the holiday of a lifetime.
Sandals bonded you are an accomplished rider; off-roading my laden Strom could have ended in tears if the precious beer in my panniers had been spilt.

Yes, by Thursday we'll be north of the arctic circle where we'll hang a right and head for Sweden.
This is my first trip to Norway and it is the most sceninic and friendly nation in Europe (well, the bits I've visited so far), it's stunning.

Been to Norway 5 times, absolutely stunning country, with the added benefit of great people that all speak better English than I do.   
Unless it's got two wheels and an engine slung in the middle, I'm not interested.

Nice! I was once on a campsite close to the Atlantic road. It was so incredibly quiet and serene there, absolutely amazing. Just fishing for mackerel and then bbqing them
