Bumblebee break down

Some disadvantages have advantages. While Ophelia brings heavy storm to Ireland the Netherlands are experiencing some of the warmest Autumn days ever on the other site of the Channel. We decided to make use of this beautiful sunny Sunday and take Bumblebee and Megatron for a tour partly around the north of the IJsselmeer which…

Observe, anticipate & enjoy!

Since I ride motorcycle I experience traffic completely different. Being outside on a balance vehicle surrendered to the elements I observe and anticipate with a clear purpose. Being able to park my Bumblebee in the garage in one piece including myself! Motorcycling is great fun taking in the scenery, enjoying winding roads touring around. But…

Escaping Autumn in France

Since we did not have a great summer and Iceland is not really the summer destination on earth, the three of us decided to hit the road to France to catch some sun. For the first time we used a motortrailer which is very practical if you haven’t got a lot of time and want…

Touch down

When I was thinking of buying Bumblebee lots of motorcycles were to tall or heavy for me. My dad said you don’t have to carry your bike and he is right. But if you have to push or pull it out of the garage and move it around it is very nice if you are able to do this…

Last miles to Reykjavik

From Holmavik we drove to West where we stayed at a lake named Skorradalsvatn in a very nice Airbnb. Before arriving we climbed the Grabrok crater which is next to the ring road. Next day we made a little tour in the area of the lake. Riding back to Reykjavik we handed in our motorcycles and explored…

The end of the world

From Akureyri we rode to Holmavik. A small place in the Westfjords. It is a long and scenic ride with large parts unpaved roads. Fortunately the weather was good. But it feels like the end of the world. Lots of people moved out of the Westfjords and not a lot of tourists visit but it…

Whale watching

Entering Akureyri the heart shaped red traffic lights caught my attention. Installed during the crisis to keep up the positive thinking I read later on. Basically everywhere in Iceland there is wifi in bars, restaurants, big supermarkets (Netto, Bonus and Hagkaup) and in the Airbnb’s we rented. After a day rest we decided to go…

Alien landscape

From Egilsstadir to Akureyri is a very special ride. It is like riding through an alien landscape. Winding roads that take you through magnificent valleys with volcanic rocks, mountains and striking light fall over the landscape. Around every corner you get jawbreaking surprises.  We did a small detour to visit the Dettifoss waterfalls which is…
