Re: Anyone near Oslo, Norway ?
Thanks for the contacts, but it l looks like my brother and wife have the situation in well in hand. They wisely bought breakdown insurance (via Stefan) and even though the bike did not breakdown, the insurance company is shipping the bike back to Heidelberg and pays for their flights from Oslo to Frankfurt when they are ready.
Your right, it's been stored at Stefan's for 2+ years and it has works out very, very well. He has a great location, and he takes care of as much or as little of the travel and service arrangements as you like. I like to do my own service and he provides tools and a clean shop. Otherwise he'll do tires and fluid changes. He has a trailer to haul the bike to BMW for more. It very comforting to have someone that will step up for you if a problem comes up so far from home.
This year my wife and I spent 5 weeks in Spain (and France). Last year all of Italy, Greece and back through Croatia. Fall, 2013, we'll do Scandinavia and into Russia.
