No rule without exceptions!

For some months ago I got this email from a guy named Espen. He wrote to tell me his grandfather was a motorcycle racer, dealer, pilot (Norwegian champion in speed flights), athletic champion, and a pretty famous boxing champ. This all took place in the late twenties and early thirties, until he unfortunately died far too early at the age of 34.
His name was Erling Gran Henriksen.

Erling was a keen Ariel enthusiast as well as retailer, and now we are getting closer to the exception mentioned in the header, we will talk about "other" motorcycles than US made ones on this blog.

As an advertsing stunt to prove Ariels reliability, Erling with the help of three friends managed to ride and carry the Ariel from Gjendesheim to Memurubu, this is crossing the Besseggen mountains, this most of us would not consider doing by foot.

Enjoy one great picture from this adventure.
