What are your vacation plans?

Mine is just riding around the southern part of Norway.
Maybe go to Risør which is a very nice costal village where I will stay at one friends holiday home.



And visit another friend who live in Sandane which is in fjord country of Norway and a mere 11 hour drive from me. Including 2 ferries.


I will also ride here several times (not far from my home)

But this I will NOT do, even if it is major tourist attractions in Norway and pretty close to my place.

This is a stone vedged between two mountain clifs with a very high drop down to the fjord....HECK NO


HECK NO again!


AGAIN, NO WAY!

Next year maybe the US + Thailand and the Phillipines

Re: What are your vacation plans?

hehe

Stavanger is 10 miles from my home
Sandnes is the city just south of Stavanger

Maybe we should meet and go for a ride or something.

Re: What are your vacation plans?

You have to include BMW Motorrad days in Garmisch in your vacation plans. I was there last year. It was a blast.......

Re: What are your vacation plans?

Re: What are your vacation plans?

My father and I are planning a motorcycle camping trip for us and our wives. Currently, we're looking at going to the northern end of Michigan, but it's still a little up in the air.

The one requirement that I have is that he brings his trailer (I haven't taken that leap yet) so that my big tent (to fit my fat arse in) will be able to be brought along.
