Hello from Austria, exactly from Upper Austria ...
« on: January 21, 2020, 13:47:12 »
... near the Borderline to Germany.
My Name is Kurt and i am right now 48 years Young  ;D
I ride a SD02A from 2002, with nearly 125.000Km and i still lover her (she's called the fat Berta).
In 2019 I have made my longest motorcycle trip so far, going to the North Cape, via Sweden, Norway, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Poland and back to my Hometown in Austria (~12.000Km). Was on the road for nearly 6 weeks, a great and wonderful time. (https://www.facebook.com/Kurtgoesnordkapp/)

nice to being here in the group, greetings Kurt

Not quite Jyrki, the most northern mainland point in Europe is Kinnaodden, a bit west from Gamvik ;D

But that point in Russia is on an island, like The North Cape. Jyrki and I are speaking mainland.

No, you'll have to walk at a path from Mehamn, 23,8 km each way, to get there, estimated to a two days trip  ;D
