Autumn - end of another season.

Writing those words, and we are in the last week of October - autumn is almost done. September gave some nice rides in crisp air, cold but still warm when there was sun.

Had a day`s ride on the WL, alone, that is in a way OK as I am free to follow the speed that suits me and the bob job. Here a stop at a gas station, many Jap bikes where out this day, for sure they are all a quite different breed than my old WL.

Do you se the post box? Only a few meters from the road is a farm that have been unpopulated for two decades or more, now almost invisible.

The WL is seen from inside the green, if you look closely enough.

Once a mans workshop, now slowly taken back by mother nature.

Going gravel roads with the Beemer outfit is great, no cars for hours, here a stop looking for Chantarells.


This 50 Pan needed some love and care.

The end of public road dont have to be the end of fun roads.

Those roads where to bad for my modern ride, had to be a passenger in Runes Ural/BMW outfit, Villy and son with Zundapp KS in front.

New family member coming home. Harley Davidson 1937 W, Øyunn`s "new" ride.

This nice old 45" have been asleep for more than four decades.


Happy owner with a big grin!

End of summer - some recent photos

Scenery when climbing down towards Kvås.

Norway`s southern point, Lindesnes.

Some of Jarle`s Jaguar projects.

Roadkill 2020 was a blast.

Rival`s bikes.

Just arrived, by Henderson De-Luxe.

Riding buddy Rune and his 27 J.

Henderson, the silent four.

Before breakfast, regretting the amount of Aquavite.

Friends I.

Friends II.

Heading back home - the most beautiful weather this season.

Going backroads with "da-boss".

Strange pair.

Finally got Bjarne Wist up on the wall in my new garage.
A Harley nut since long gone.

Pics from Yesterdaze

Just another batch of great motorbike related pics from years since long gone by, enjoy.

You know you have a problem when.....   This is actually a pretty rare machine, 1925ìsh Indian Prince

A mighty THOR V-twin and Norwegian country roads, unbeatable.

A happy group of people enjoying the sport of motorcycle riding, from left Indian PP, Harley Davidson 61" IOE, Harley Davidson Silent Grey Fellow 1915 and one big inch flatty from Reading Standard.

No problem to be cool when you can bring your gal on a ride with this Indian outfit.

You got to love those late thirties Chief`s, what great bikes they are.

Nearly a car, well I wish I would have had the chance to try one of those Ner - a - Car`s to see how they act with hub steering and feet forward!

Another pic of that great Reading Standard shown in the earlier pic. The dress code on the riders is pretty posh!

Bike and babes - three of the later.

You might think all early Harley`s in Norway where the same boring green when delivered from Sørensen & Balchen, not so. The bikes used by our postal service where delivered in red colors, dark red as the mailbox.

Early Cleveland two stroke, a popular machine even with its odd solutions to the engine and gearbox.

Crossing the Mountains, a white adventure / visitors from Rakkestad

Last weekend of May the mountain pass Brokke - Suleskard was opened for traffic after weeks of frenetic work by the road workers to remove heaps of snow.
Me and "da boss" had planned to make a ride to the mountains this first weekend as it is kind of cool to be among the first to cross. We were really thrilled when we a few days in advance of our planned trip got a call from our friends Vegard and Rune. They planned a Southern Norway spring ride, a ride including a visit to our home. We soon convinced them to include a ride in the mountains on their way back east.

What a weather, what a ride and my gosh what amounts of snow in the mountains!!

A few glimpses of May and June.

March, April & May, the spring months this year have brought times quite different than what one had foreseen.
In short, Covid 19.
Luckily we live country side and have been able to enjoy riding our Mc`s without any regulations.

Finally by the end of May I got the Knuck ready and have had some good rides on it.
Last out was the WL bob early June.
Kind of regained the relationship with my old sidehack companion, the BMW R100GN. Believe it or not, it is not all about old Hog`s.

Time is my worst enemy, got to spend more time on the road.

Enjoy some photos from May & first week of June.
