(In Finnish: Puumalan Saaristoreitti)
I’ve started my holiday tour 2 days ago. I hope I will have more time to write about details and routes but in this update I want to share this:
My drone finally arrived from service and I got this video made yesterday!
This is ferry “Norppa II” and it takes bicycles and motorcycles and makes a ride in the lake Saimaa. Even it wasn’t the best possible weather it was still quite amazing. The beautiful archipelago of Saimaa made me forget even about riding for awhile… I was just sitting on the deck and enjoying the views and summer breeze.
We’re in the paradise island. What should we do? Go to the beach? Go to have some summer activities? Jet Ski maybe? No… Lets go ride a motorcycle!
I made a route almost 300km’s long and we started riding that. First south from Galeria: These parts are so nice ride with magnificant views to the sea almost all the time. And finally the Col de Palmarella with sensational views to the both sides of the island! Southside from Golfe de Porto we found the the rock-formations of Les Calanques de Piana. But as excepted this area is quite full of people!
We only stopped for awhile to take some pictures and we continued more south towards Col de Vergio. This is the highest mountain pass in Corsica island (With altitude of 1477m).
It was very funny to ride these areas of Corsica! The road was sweeping nicely through Pinetree-forest and the forest was full of pigs! For some reason you don’t see the pigs in my video because they stay at the shadows but here is one pic…
The eastside of Vergio is actually a very beautiful (and dangerous) Canyonroad with very narrow places and tight/ steep corners!
In Ponte Leccia we tried to find a place to eat…. But not a very good success! We found only Panini and waitress dropped one of them to my lapp and then she pushed her fingers to Maria’s (or Salla’s) Cola! Not a very good day for her I guess? Here’s the route for day 7:
I got myself a drone, I was trying to get something good enough so I wouldn’t think right away that this is only a toy. But I also thought not to buy too expensive so I would go crazy if I break it!
Here’s my first engine start at my home floor…
Once again I went to see the fireworks very near to my home. Every year they do the show already 8pm because there are lots of families with young children. This time they had some technical issues and the show started about 8.30pm.
Because there is music in this show it may not show in your mobile device or in some countries.
Few hours later in Helsinki the year actually changed from 2016 to 2017 and it was maybe the best & biggest fireworks ever! (this link is aviable only in Finland!), other good links here and here.
I could do some demonstration of the bikes (and I probably will do later) but here are all the new interesting bikes for season 2017, shown to us by 44teeth.com (with BaronVonGrumble and his face! -You don’t see that too often!)
I was riding with a friend last sunday (24th of April). It was very cold weather but luckily we had enought clothes. We made a nice ride to Lahnajärvi and back…. it was about 190 km’s. This time I had the camera attached in my helmet so now the picture is not with the resonance.
In this first video you need to check the video from 14:15! There’s a goshawk very near to the road and it flies away when I ride to it’s place.
In this video the road gets pretty bad in 02:05.
