A Motorcyclist’s Guide to the Best North Norway Destinations

A Motorcyclist’s Guide to the Best North Norway Destinations

The Beauty of Northern Norway Welcome to the northernmost region of Norway, an exquisite destination world-known for its stunning natural beauty. There’s a reason people refer to this region as “The Land of the Midnight Sun.” Northern Norway is a region of extremes—from the gentle coastal landscape to the remote and rugged highland regions, from lush green forests to barren tundra. But it’s exactly this diversity—a mere 400 km from North Cape in the north to Lindesnes in the south—that…

Tips For Cleaning Your Motorcycle With A Pressure Washer

Tips For Cleaning Your Motorcycle With A Pressure Washer

Washing your motorcycle with a pressure washer is the easiest way to get it clean. The bike will also dry faster because water won’t be sitting on it for hours at a time. Cleaning your bike regularly is important in order to keep the paint job looking shiny and new. If you don’t have access to a garden hose, or simply want an easier way to do this, then using one of these machines will make things much more manageable….

Norway by motorcycle

Norway by motorcycle

With stunning scenery, twisting mountainous routes, and nearly faultless asphalt, Norway is a destination for riders looking to push themselves past the (relative) comfort of being closer to home on the continent.The best time to visit is from mid-June to mid-August. I visited at the mid of July, the weather hot, really hot. More than 30 degrees of Celsius when riding over the high plains. The colder it becomes the further north you go, so expect temperatures closer to early…

Ultimate Ear

Ultimate Ear

Tässäpä lyhyesti katsaus käytössäni oleviin korvatulppiin. Kyseessä on englantilaisen Ultimate Ear -yrityksen (Ultimate Ear Protection ltd) valmistamat muotoon valetut tulpat. Olen koko mp-uran aikana etsinyt aina sitä “oikeaa” tulppaa, ja kieltämättä monta euroa on mennyt jos minkäkinlaisen tulpan valmistajalle. Olen käyttänyt Eareita, joulukuusitulppia, yrittänyt itse tehdä valettuja tulppia, testannut erilaisia korvanappeja äänenvaimennuksella (aktiivinen/passiivinen) ja ilman. Varmaan on parikymmentä erilaista yritystä ollut. Olen myös ilman tulppia lyhyitä matkoja ajannut, ja se ei kyllä ole minun juttu. Alla asiaan liittyvää perustelua. Minulla…

The helmet, KLIM Krios Pro 2020

The helmet, KLIM Krios Pro 2020

Last time I changed my helmet was a few years back when I bought the Schuberth E1. It was a novel helmet and eagerly waited amongst Schuberth users. Schuberth’s answer to Dual Sport/Adventure riders. It is a modular helmet, it has a peak and a built-in sun visor. It is a great value helmet but it has also some downsides. You have to have the “Schuberth head”, more round than oval. It is heavy because of all the mechanisms and…

Vibration damper for motorcycle electronics devices

Vibration damper for motorcycle electronics devices

I used to have bikes with no significant vibration to handlebar or other parts. The engines were big and well balanced. But when I bought my thumper, KTM 690 Enduro R (my 2015), I suddenly had a problem. And a big one. How to reduce vibrations which are powerful enough to break your phone, navigator, camera or any other electrical device you attach to the handlebar or front of the bike? I know there are people without any of the…

Wintery tinkering 2019

During the long white season, there are not many travel stories to tell. And while I am not a winter driver (yet), I just do some slow maintenance work in my garage to my bikes. Last year I got a new bike to me, the KTM 690 Adventure R. I thought to broaden my riding more gravel roads and even some technical driving in single tracks and paths. There is some 20 000 km of gravel roads here in Finland. They…
