Took the bike on a one-day-trip yesterday, from Porsgrunn to Lysebotn and back in Norway. About 700km of wonderful roads! Never get sick of riding in Norway :D

 Just Google mapped a look at that tunnel at the Lysebotn end, it  looks interesting? I have just got back from the Alps and been through a few rock tunnels in passes, but not quite like that one.

Ĺh...Lysebotn...one VERY fine road down/up. And the tunnel is turning quit a bit, and is wet and slippery. Been there twice ::012::
And also road 520 from Hĺre to Sauda in Norway, one of the best road I have ever ridden. Done this road four times :))

Very much enjoyed Lysebotn 4 years ago.



The Norwegians were so nice that they even made a sign of me at Trollstigen.

Trail Ridge Road today. Lot of traffic, 232 miles in 5.5 hours. Probably the longest non stop ride I've ever done, 5.5hrs without stopping other than traffic jams. For those that lust for Colorado, 2 mile line to enter trail ridge road today to pay the $20.00 fee out of Estes Park.

A nice Saturday afternoon - 177miles, 4hr - ride up to North Georgia to 'capture' a bonus for the Grand Tour of Georgia





I've got everything North of I-20 on the GTGA.  Waiting to cool off before I work on the stuff down south

Today, I made a little lunch ride to TWoS today.  First time on the bike in over a month.  A cruise with the wife and Canoeing in Canada with my son and the scouts got I the way.  It fealt good to get out on 2 wheels

Have been in Texas for the last several weeks riding around the area. Looking at possibly moving here, and trying to get an idea of the area. Not much of a pleasure ride, so to speak, although riding is pleasure! 2,400+ miles so far.

By the way, I left 100+ in SoCal, for 100+ in Texas??? Never said I was smart.....

Yeah, but whereas 100+ is "normal" here, isn't that unusual for SoCal?  Of course my experience with southern California is limited to San Diego.  But, it is definitely WAY cheaper to live here.

I took my Supertenere to Ireland at the weekend to the "Armoy road races" and boy did it rain...( I've got webbed feet) But didn't spoil the fun, first time to Armoy, but not an Irish road race, and they didn't let us down here the action was top notch, and Michael Dunlop was on top form, and the opposition didn't stand a chance, lots of rain, some races being held up for showers to clear and friday and Saturday were sublime for racing, I didn't envy the racers, as the paddock was a field for most, and Shrinkwrap was a neccessity to keep the tyres clean until they got on the grid, we had a run up to Malin Head on Sunday and more rain but it didn't tae the edge of the run, And the S10 was the bike to be on in these conditions  ::008::
