    I had this thought a while ago..., finally my mind decided that it is time to go this year…  :002:




    I asked some things using this forum when I was preparing this trip…, what tank bag suits fine in the CR or  what kind of tires can resist more than 6.000miles… ( Pirelli Angel ST amply did ! )

    I departed on Jun 30th and I was back home on Jul17th, when I arrived my CR had additional 11.500kms  ( 7250 miles ) it didn’t gave any issue, it worked perfectly! only needed chain-lubricant and carburant…




    Here some carburant amounts…, about 615litres consumed, 5.4litres/100kms, both data comes from the on-board computer.


    This is the daily stage and kms:
       
    30-jun-13   Barcelona to Müllhein ( Germany )   1055
    01-jul-13   Kassel ( Germany )   665
    02-jul-13   Limfjorden (Danmark )   815
    03-jul-13   Rysstad (Norway )   270
    04-jul-13   Svartavatnet520(Norway )   390
    05-jul-13   Lom (Norway)   390
    06-jul-13   Kvam (Norway)   650
    07-jul-13   Ballangen (Norway)   700
    08-jul-13   Near Nordkapp (Norway)   760
    09-jul-13   Inari (Finland)   360
    10-jul-13   Rovaniemi (Finland)   375
    11-jul-13   Hoting(Sweden)   745
    12-jul-13   Sjoa (Norway)   685
    13-jul-13   Vindöns (Sweden)   575
    14-jul-13   Lubeck (Germany)   710
    15-jul-13   Eslohe (Germany)   495
    16-jul-13   A31 Aire de la Tille (France)   725
    17-jul-13   Ribes de Freser ( Catalonia )   865

    Thanks for your help…, I would share with you part of my pictures:

    thanks!

    kiko, yes, i did this trip alone, It is not easy to find colleagues when you propose to sleep into a tend in Scandinavia !  :002:

    Kurare79, you have fantastic roads around your home...I realized that I will have to go again and explore deeper your region!   :002:

    Congratulations for this trip!
    I will do it, maybe in 2015. The main problem is the time necessary for it. To run on wheels from Romania is quite far away...
    I saw that you had a very nice average of km/day. Have you taken the highways?
