There was one more rider waiting for us in the Schwerin accomodation and then we were 5 riders to conquer the Europe! The last bike to the group is black Triumph Street Triple.
We checked the Schwerin castle already early in the morning!
This is the castle itself.
The day was about riding many kilometers and quite a lot about taking it in Autobahn. In the middle of the day there was some rain too -it surprised us and we got a little bit wet! The route was 650km’s to the southside of the Danube river in Regensburg. It was a nice sunset from the hotel window!
The route was like this:
It was monday the 26th of June when me and 3 friens of mine took the boat from Helsinki to Travemunde (Germany).
We had 4 red bikes (Ducati Monster 695, Ducati Streetfighter 1100, Yamaha MT-09 Tracer and BMW S1000XR) to ride with next three weeks.
The boat trip takes over 1 day and there’s nothing to do (except to eat!) And maybe go outside and take some pictures:
This was 4am in the morning when the sun was getting up from the northeast. One of the most beautiful sunrises I’ve ever seen! Tuesday 27th of June the boat was almost 1,5 hours late in the harbour of Travemunde and we had 70km’s to ride to our first destination. It was a beautiful city of Schwerin where we had a place to stay for the night. The route was like this:
Mostly they’re selling too short chains!! If anyone of you is thinking about buying new chains? And looking anything but the originals. Here’s a warning!
It seems that there is wrong information about the length of the XR’s chains! Quite many marketplace is selling 118-links chains and the XR has 128-links!! I was very lucky to find D.I.D. 525 chains that has 128 links but they are maybe too weak (X-ring).
As far as I know there’s not too many aftermarket chains that are long- and strong enough -I would prefer XW-rings not the X-ring.
Motocaching.net just reached 2,500 motorcycle rides introduced in the service. Thanks to all users who have shared these great roads and places with other motorcyclists 👍 There are also about 13,500 comments to keep stuff up to date. Not too shabby! Btw, the motocache number 2500 was part of the Blue Ridge Parkway in United States, Virginia.

This time I will make update in Finnish.
Aika-ajo.com on suomalainen nettisivusto joka on koonnut muutaman aktiivisen nettikirjoittajan ajatuksia yhteen. Sitä voisi hyvinkin kutsua aikakausilehdeksi jota julkaistaan netissä. Aiheita ovat urheilu, liikkuminen sekä moottoroidut vehkeet.
Nyt Aika-ajo on kirjoittanut motokätköilystä eli motocaching.net sivustosta. Kirjoitus on melko neutraali eikä hehkuta ylisanoilla eri ominaisuuksia mutta kertoo toki kaiken tarpeellisen siitä miten sivusto syntyi ja miten se on kehittynyt/ kasvanut alkuaikojen jälkeen. Itselläni on ollut isohko osa tämän palvelun kehittymisessä.
Tästä pääset lukemaan jutun.
Tältä näyttää motocahing.net sivuston etusivu englannin kielellä.
This is how motocaching.net frontpage looks like.
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: –

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!
