Let the good times roll

I’ve started my 4th motorcycle season! :) I got my bike out about a month ago and have been doing a few local trips just to warm up for a longer ride this summer (Maybe I should go see the fjords in Western Norway?).

The local trip today went to Oggevann and Kilefjorden. Oggevann is a popular place for canoeing and kayaking. Tourists also enjoy the Elk safaris up there. Kilefjorden wasn’t exactly a “biggie” but there was a nice café there and a great opportunity for a break half-way. Oh, and there are small cabins next to the café that you cant rent if you want to stay there overnight or longer (you can go fishing!).

There was the usual gravel and the occasional plank-in-the-f**king-middle-of-the-road, but that’s normal this time of year after the snow melts. Make sure you take note of that if you’re ever to ride in Norway. Agriculture is popular in-land and dirt, sand, gravel, firewood, horseshit! (slippery…) and the likes can pop up anywhere, especially in a turn with an intersection leading to a farm (some of the farmers don’t secure their tractor loads very well, so stuff falls all over the roads). So drive safely – and enjoy! :)

Oh, by the way, the map below includes a short trip to my family in Lillesand :) The most beautiful little town in Norway which you should include in any visit to Norway :) (thank you mayor, I’ll take my $100 now thanks!).
