    Tromso was the only place I saw any Cruisers while I was in Norway, it was a 70 and a 60 I think.

    I want to go back to Norway.......so bad.....its the only place besides where I am at I would move to.....just loved it.

    Downside you miss out on snow wheeling, and the best of all snowmobiling


    Kawasaki snowmobiles are still the hottest thing on snow!

    Oh contraire my northern friend....any idea how much snow falls on the sierras? Rubithon was almost cancelled again this year becuase of all the snow still up there in June. Many of the 11,000ft + peaks south of Carson valley have snow year-round they get so much. Yep, If I want snow, I don't have to drive very far....best of all I never have to shovel my driveway:)

    not tough, just do not own a coat or the sort of gear you would need. Would be great to see Canada though. Tv morning show here did a programme for over a week there ,started on the west coast on the island and travelled across the country, simply amazing. Our mountains are only hills to Can&USA. Wish we had all the water and lakes you guys have, dam dry now.:cheers: is this a hijack,, sorry:eek:

    I thought canadian mountains were big, till I went to Chile, The Andes that I flew in were around 21,000 feet high.

    Then when I got back our mountains were looking like hills,

    so it all in perspective.


    Norway looks awesome.

    I worked with a guy who was an engineer from Widroe(airline) he showed me pictures of Norway. Yup kinda like northern Canada.

    Remember most of norway is at or above the arctic circle............right???

    they are pretty high up there. Like inuvik is too us..

    Hudson Bay Mountain (8300 feet/2530 m)

    not a great pic, buts is from my house. see the ski slopes on the hill to the left.

    also I get a great deal of bear and moose in my yard. already this year I have seen both.

    This was the moose last year.

    they are much bigger this year. same ones come back season after season, they eat the fruit off the trees.

    I was at Nordkapp(WAY above the artic circle, on map its above Hammerfest) in September and was wearing shorts and riddin on the back of a Harley.

    Bergen and Oslo(in September is was 80degs) are about the same longitude at Washington State.......Trosmo is a great deal north however, pretty much up to the top.....

    [​IMG]

    there are very few places to wheel in Norway from what I could gather, but who cares, the people are great(the women are BEAUTIFULL) the country is breathtaking, the lifestyle is wonderfull, the medical system is about the best there is, its a VERY rich country...sense they found oil in the 1970's.

    Like I said......its the only place on the planet I would move to.

    If you ever get a chance to go to Norway.........GO!
