    Scandinavia 2017 - 23 days - 10500 km

    Hi again - I put the first pics to my Homepage to find behind "Norway 17"

    Started Friday in the afternoon to my 10.500 km trip from Passau thru Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Germany & the Czech Republic.

    Travel time 23 days around Midsummer (St John's Day).

    Camped the first night on a field in the middle of Germany and went on to the island Fehmarn to go via ferry to Denmark.

    Saturday in the late evening at 11 o'clock I arrived in Copenhagen.

    Thank you Derick.

    More Information abot the trailer HERE.

    @Steve: I had a vere busy season with 20000 km on the wing. A very fine bike for me. Fits perfect for my short legs and big belly

    I sold my ST1100 in April and visited some rallys with the trailer and had been last weekend in Austria, Slovenia and Italy with some friends from the german ST1100-Forum.

    Beneath that some issues like my not yet completed divorce

    Loved the photos as I also love that piece of work you have performed on that "Airstream." Has anyone from the Airstream crowd been in contact with you about the possibility of them doing something similar to your Mini-Airstream? I remember following you through the building process, but forgot the finished weight...Is it less than 400 Pounds? Quite a bug collection you have there on your windscreen...what a trip that must have been. Can you feel the "envy" in this post? Thanks for the pics.

    Nice! I think that area is on my bucket list.. I'm going to be in Iceland next week with the wife.. first time out of country for me in any meaningful way since I got out of the navy back in 91. If this vacation goes at all ok.. I'm thinking future excursions will be into that neck of the woods. Doubt I'll get to do it on 2 wheels... but I can dream.

    Scandinavia 2017 - 23 days - 10,500 km

    Now the report:

    Hello girls & guys,

    In the middle of June 2017 I took my new ride to the north to travel Scandinavia, where I have been never before, except in Denmark.

    After 7 years of project work, I was able to take three weeks of vacation.
    I wished to see the midnight sun and when I travel above the Polar Circle, I wanted to visit the Nordkapp, too.

    On the way to the north, it was a good idea to stay in Copenhagen and also in Stockholm for two days and to see the two cities during the summertime.
    Stockholm I did not know yet and Copenhagen only from a business trip in January (brrrr) many years ago.

    My start date should bring me at the Midsummers Weekend to Stockholm and I hoped to see many American Vintage Cars and parties at the Baltic Beaches.

    And after 15 years with the ST 1100 this should also be my first big trip with the 16-year-old blue GL 1800, I bought in February.
    Of course with my little airstream on the hook. The rough plan was around 9,500 km of road plus 22 ferry routes.


    After the 8,500 km tour around Spain and Portugal with my first ST 1100 in 2014, this would be the second big trip with the trailer.

    I started on Friday the 16th of June at 3 o'clock after work and wanted to come near Erfurt.
    Over the B85 I drove through the Bavarian Wood and then took the B22 through the Fichtelgebirge.
    After passing Rudolstadt I began looking for a place to stay overnight and my GPS showed me a long dirt road on the left.

    Under a couple of windmills, I stopped my rig after 408 km and slipped into in my can bed.


    On Saturday morning I took the B4 towards Magdeburg and through the Harz Mountains with speed limit 60 everywhere.
    My Garmin zumo sends me on the shortest way without Autobahn through Lübeck to Fehmarn.

    In the ferry queue in Puttgarden I met a small Spaniard, who is on a 950 KTM on the way to the north
    and after crossing my first ocean, I decided to go on to Copenhagen into the night.

    At sunset at 9:30 I had dinner at a Burger King and at 11 a.m. I arrived at the Camping Fort Charlottenlund after 724 km.
    The reception is closed, but on the beach parking lot I can sleep in the trailer.
