The temperature went down for easter! It was something like -5 during the night and didn’t go up more than close to zero in the daytime. But still we desided to take a ride!
This is my first time to the top of the sandpit wall! I’ve tried it maybe two times before in this place, but now finally I made it!
In this same video I almost fell in good speed because the ground is frozen and I loose control of the rear wheel! You can see this in 09:35.
The second video is from Rausjärvi:
This same road I rode a day before and it was much more soft. Now the cold weather and the frozen ground made it quite easy.
Third video is a fast gravelroad from Ahonpää (Nummi-Pusula) to Antiainen (Karkkila):
Next video is 4 bikes going over the stream in Lammassaari:
I also made a short video to IG just a few minutes before:
And for the last I was shooting a video when my battery died, this was in Karkkila:
And finally one of my friends had a helmetcamera too and he desided to make a collection from yesterday. This is fun to watch!
Thanks Ville for the video!!
Soon all the snow will be gone! And I haven’t done almost anything to my KTM yet. Ok, yesterday I did install the protection shield by touratech under the engine, but it was easy installation!
Then today I was at the garage again and desided to take a short ride even there’s some ice and snow on the road! I rode about 5-600 meters and took one short video of the sounds. Remember it has the LeoVince silencer now!
Before the season really starts I still need to install the extra tank. After that the bike is ready for all the adventures to come… in the season 2017!
Helsinki motorcycle exhibition 2017 was in Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre.
Even there’s this possible (totally insane) motorcycle-tax coming it didn’t seem to affect the peoples intrest. Here are some of the most interesting bikes of the show:
Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled
Husqvarna 401 Vitpilen
New versions of BMW R NineT
Triumph Street Triple 765
KTM 1090 Adventure R
Yamaha MT-07 Tracer
All the pictures I took are here!
I did a post in august 2013 about the best motorcycleroads in Finland -now it’s time to make the same in English.
I have chosen only the routes that are longer than 10 km. You can also find the best roads from motocaching.net but there the most of the introductions and comments are in Finnish. And my list is not the same!
Pros: Nice corners and landscapes Cons: Few parts only 40km/h speedlimit
- Fagervikintie – Vanha Rannikkotie
Pros: Some parts are challenging some parts are with nice landscapes, nice corners Cons: The pavement is in bad shape
Pros: Maybe the tightest corners in Finland Cons: Ends in gravel, blind corners
- Vihti – Road 280
Pros: Nice speed, lots of other good roads near Cons: –
- Hämeen Härkätie (Somero – Porras)
Pros: Nice speed, nice pavement Cons: Low speedlimit near Somero
Pros: Nice corners and hills (!) Cons: Ends in gravel
- Puumala – Sulkava
Pros: Nice speed and quiet road Cons: –
- Hamina – Virolahti museumroad
Pros: Nice corners and challenge Cons: at weekends lots of traffic
- Kuninkaantie ABC – Sarvisalo
Pros: Nice variable corners, nice landscapes Cons: –
- Niska-Pietiläntie – Miettiläntie
Pros: Challenging Cons: The pavement is in bad shape
Somebody might think that there are other roads in top 10, but this is my list. Please leave a comment or if you have any questions!
