Hawgs meet - Toten


July, spent time in Eastern Norway at Øyunns cottage. As I had brought my WL bobber along I had the opportunity to go to Hawgs summer party, held at one of their club locations at Toten.

We all met at Malte`s place and drove from there to Toten in one large group of old Hog`s.  What a great group of the best people around and their machines. A total of 12 bikes, including seven 37 models, one E and six W`s all old Norwegian machines!!

Got the opportunity to ride many  roads I never rode before and whow some had a great scenery.
