No ex­cuses, just get out there!

MCN reader buys his first bike and heads out on Nor­we­gian ad­ven­ture

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

Here are some shots from my solo trip to Nor­way – a breath­tak­ingly beau­ti­ful coun­try and bik­ing mecca. I'd never owned a bike be­fore but bagged a not-tooshabby 13-plate R1200GS off ebay and booked a day’s re­fresher (it's 28 years since I took my test). Back on ebay for some pan­niers and a tent. Then across the Tun­nel, through north­ern Europe and up through Nor­way and the arc­tic cir­cle to the Lo­fotens. 14 days, count­less fer­ries, tun­nels and 5100.9 miles later and I can't be­lieve it's over. The bike is now se­cond na­ture, es­pe­cially as it's shed a few pounds (sans pan­niers and gear). Met great peo­ple along the way and had a blast. Roll on sum­mer 2017! Tim Law­son, email

Head­ing north on the 13-plate BMW R1200GS From novice to ad­ven­turer thanks to one easy in­ter­net pur­chase It’s not every day you meet Jorge!
