There is still a ferry directly to Norway from Blighty, I've recently found out via a couple of fellow Cub folk. It just isn't obviously there! I'm well up for this one, but want to leave it until next year really.

Thanks for the comments everyone, If anyone wants info about this trip or anywhere else for that matter, please ask. As for me, I have stories about other trips I made, Russia, Taiwan, Korea, Yorkshire dales but none of these trips were made on a Honda 90 so would be out of place on this web site.
Right now I am circumnavigating Japan on a 90 and will update that thread periodically, (at the moment the weather is lousy, cold, heavy rain) so I'm doing a few jobs at home.
In 2012 there is a sidecar event in England. Watsonian sidecars will be 100 years in 2012. I want to attend with the Japanese importer of Watsonian but I'm torn between my choice of wheels. HONDA 90 I hear everybody shout. Should anyone want to join me on that venture please contact me for details.

Well, we were very pleased to receive Prof's write up of his adventures on a Triumph in the Yukon!
It's a good piece, and it's received 273 views!
Lot's of us own other bikes, and I think any inspirational story that fires people up to get out and ride, whatever they choose to ride, would be welcomed.
What do other people think? Perhaps a poll? ;) :D :D :D

Although the dales are unique in Europe I have no specific trip as such. Living near Barnoldswick for the last 20 years made trips into the Dales a normal but never boring weekend run out. Many memories but very few pictures. The trip to the North Cape was a 3 1/2 week trip. My last trip to Europe covers almost 5 months with over 7000 photo's :o :o but now greatly reduced to maybe 1000. That's the beauty of a digital camera. Click away and then select useable photos.

I hear that Popeye- I snap away like a madman, then weed out the good from the bad later- take enough and there's bound to be a few good ones.

Sometimes when I have the time and the inclination I'll sit and fanny around with various compositions - that's truly the beauty of digital!
