Just booked the ferry ride from Denmark to Faroe Islands to Iceland for Sept/Oct... Arriving in Iceland on Oct 2.

Guess who's riding a motorcycle on a volcano this fall!!!

Trip will start with the T.E. Lawrence Sumposium at Oxford (I have to do something snobby to justify the trip...) then Dunkirk beaches and museum... on to Remagen, Nigmegan and Arnhem. Yes, the bridges. And a couple of amazing naval museums on the German coast. Then on via ferry to Iceland for a week of riding.

From Iceland, bike gets shipped to St. John Newfoundland for the ride home via the TransLabrador next spring.... @ArmyJerry are you with me spring 2019 to go fight off bears and giant blackflies on the translab?

Cheers,

Sirhr

While it is 'street legal' if one put the turn signals back on, and changed the sprocket back to 'stock', I do still have a '80 CT 110 that has been somewhat converted to a 'trials bike' type of thing.

Not a full-on trials, don't get me wrong. But for climbing the hills of B.C. quietly, whilst hunting and pulling game out, this thing is a beaut. Originally, the rear sprockets were 11-45 and we changed it to 11-72. The top speed of the bike is ~33km/h with this setup, but if you can keep your feet on the pegs, then it'll continue to climb the mountain/incline.

I've tried telling people (who try) NOT to put your feet on the ground, cause then the rear wheel will just slip. But when they do stay 'pegged', they continue to climb.

And my bike still has the original tires on it, too. This is a pic from the innerwebz I stole, but that's what it looks like.

Got the rest of my ferries and flights figured out for the next phase of the 'round the world' via Dakar.... 2018 back across EU to Hirtshals... and then by ferry to ride on Faroe Islands and then Iceland. Ship to St. John, Nfld... in the fall. In 2019.... ride across Newfoundland to Labrador and the Trans-Lab. Back home... then 2020... Lincoln Highway and into Alaska.... Currently trying to figure out the Alaska Marine Highway system to see if it's possible to get to Wales or Little Diomede...

Thanks.

Utterly insane is a good description for the 1199. I've been eyeing a Moster 1200S too. Something a bit more chilled out.

This is mine 2000 Yahama VStar 650 classic. Now if I could get my wife interested in riding with me I would have it made.
