  2. Dan , have a relaxing B day and a sipp of scotch for me.

  3. It is nice when you can go solo, It is just good for the soul and mind when you can ride, camp, and getaway by yourself.

    SDAR Club meeting - WED 7-17-19

    see you there
  5. Watch who you call old Rider's buster!
  6. It was a great trip Kelly, did we ever travel, I think Tuba City was the hi-light of the trip for me when I had a drunk Indian come up to me and explained that he had been in a car accident with his mom last night and she did not make it and pasted at the Hospital early in the morning. I told him I was sorry to hear that, then he asked me for some money, I told him I did not have any, then he pointed to a ATM machine and said you can get some money from that. Oh Brother! Tuba City does not even have a Hospital. I really enjoyed the pirate camping on the BLM land outside of the Canyon Park. Johns wife is the hardest working lady I have ever met! she works so hard on that small farm, who gets up at 0 4:3O to milk 9 goats and 4 cows by hand the old fashion way. Then she feeds the chickens and seven dogs. They live in the middle of nowhere in Paulden AZ where there is a place you still can find clean country liven.
  7. How are you doing!  I retire from my job this March.  I should have sometime to come out and visit you in the Spring.  I sold both of my BMW's  and bought a new BMW GSA to ride and I love it.  I would like to plan a trip to come out and visit you and ride Norway.

      Hi Dan! Didn't notice your message until now. Good to hear from you. I'm fine. Hope you and your family are doing well, also. And congratulations with your new BMW! You are most welcome to visit!  We might have snow and ice until some time in April, usually. When you talk about spring, I guess you think about some time from medio April to some time in June, since you mention spring? Some information about riding motorcycles in Norway may be found for example here: https://ridenorway.com/ . http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/country/norway/norway-on-a-shoestring , https://www.adventurebikerider.com/riding-norways-atlantic-road/ . I'm living about an hours drive from the Swedish border, so it's also possible to go visit Sweden, if you like.

      I have bikes to offer. If you want some other type, it's also possible to buy a bike for the purpose, and sell later. I guess the cheapest option with respect to travelling is to fly between LA, SD or Las Vegas and Oslo. Buying tickets between California (or Nevada) and Trondheim probably adds disproportionally much to the price of the tickets. As soon as you are in Oslo, there are always opportunities to travel where I live, for example. That is Stjørdal, less than 10 minutes drive from Trondheim airport. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Salbergvegen+12B,+7500+Stjørdal/@63.4536841,10.6630821,9.19z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x466d3e25665fcdef:0xcbaee52294af19e3!8m2!3d63.4852093!4d10.8910974

      Maybe it's cheaper to buy tickets from here, using the norwegian airline company, than from the USA. Anyway, that's something we can easily find out. I will be at a workshop in Japan that happens May 16-19. That's the only time I know that I'm out of the country.

      Roundtrips between Oslo and LA can be had for less than 350 USD some times in May, but if the dates do not fit your plans exactly, the price could also double. See for example this page: http://www.flybilligst.com/index.php?o=OSL&d=LAX&r=front_rt . http://www.norwegian.no often has the cheapest tickets, but still brand new and nice aircrafts.

      These days we are actually having thousands of your fellow countrymen here, as there is a large military exercise going on these days, called Trident Juncture https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/157833.htm .

      It could probably be useful talking to each other. I can call whenever it suits you, using skype for business, for example.  You can also contact me on email if you like; snorre.aunet@ntnu.no

      Hope to hear from you soon.

      Best Regards,



      P.S.  I attach a couple of pictures. One is with one of my daughters on a russian 2-stroke that I own. The 2nd is from a trip a friend and myself did recently. His bike is the Suzuki. Mine is the Kawa 250R.
