Moose, deer, reindeer, wild pigs, wolffs, Bears are all in norway, and in the area I have been, if I meet bear I must try to convince it that we are friends :-) In Norway you wil see loose cows and sheeps also on the road out in the mountains, so a lot to watch out for. On this trip I saw 4 mooses untill know, no danger, but many people die each year in SE and N, hitting a moose by car/mc, in DK we have no mooses, and no bears, but a few wolffs making a big debate in the media. The gas-station in the pic I found in the wildernes after crossing into north sweden today, looks like out of work for 20 years, but worked :-) hitting home by sweden, from Mo I Rana I took road E12 + E45 as there is heavy construcktion work going on at E6 all through Norway,..

"... smell like an old moose now ..." HAHA!! Yes of course there's no showers in the wild. I reckon a dip in the sea might be a little too much.

When do you get back home to collect the car and the wife?

Yep, at Strömstad now, camp "Lagunen", for two days, we are trekking, and kayaking, and just relax, perfect weather, I made pan-cakes in our little kitchen today, the micro-camper concept works well, guess its something we will refine and develope. Got a tipi-tent for the longer stops, we sit there right now drinkink redwine and enjoy the sound of some rain on the tent-roof, just a small rain-system. Tomorrow we cross the norwegian border and go for Rjukan and mount Gausta as first stop

Look forward to read about Spain later, hope all well !!!!

I admire your microcamper. It tempts me to purchase a larger car and create my own. I'd be tempted to fit a towbar and take the 125s on a trailer.

I am working hard writing the Spain story. We're back to work and back to reality and seeing you enjoy your holidays is making us both quite envious.

My bike came with a gear indicator but it went funny after the first week so I got used to not having it. Was repaired at the first full service and works fine now, useful to have but I’m used to not having it so it isn’t a major necessity to me. A bit like the gear change indicators on cars, if I’m at 6000 revs in 3rd it’s because I want to be so stop flashing at me. A button that puts you straight to neutral would be worth the money, that little green light can be hard to see at times when the strange yellow ball is in the sky.
On another note, anyone fancy a ride out on Sunday, my last weekend before going back to work. I’m in the Huddersfield area but not adverse to travelling a bit to meet up. Still on my provisional so no motorways. Just means I need to get up earlier to get where I am going.
Should have my bike back in full working order on Saturday as well as it getting is annual clean.

I'll check with Sharon to see what she's up to Borsuk...but I think that might be a good idea. Hollingworth Lake is close to you and I?

Borsuk said :-
Good job I am booked for the annual clean on Saturday then or she might attack me for maltreating my bike. ;-)

About 20 miles away according to Google.

I’m game, distance no object. Last leave I rode to Deeside for training, had 3 hours training then had to ride back to Huddersfield. My left hand was aching but rest of me was fine.

Just got an email from my insurance company that my bike insurance has had my coverage extended free to allow me to commute to work for one day during National ride your bike to work week.
Do you think I should inform them I work in Brasil and it will take more than a day for my 125 to get there from Huddersfield?

Ren - The Ed said :-
COR! They're so generous ain't they. I reckon you'll be fine, you'll get to Brasil in one day. There is in fact a Brazil Street in Manchester, I've just checked.
